When was the last time you gathered up the blankets and made a fort?
It had been a while for me, but I can’t say the same now, as it was just last week that I made this one →
The building materials came from quadruplet- Noro- blankets.
I thought it was high-time they had their place in the sun especially with the recent and auspicious arrival of Noro Silk Garden yarn to the cafe.
If you were to take up residence and gaze skyward this ↑ is what you would see. The beauty of Noro – it comes shining through! To read more about this self striping yarn check out the Mr. Noro post from weeks past.
Noro is good building materials for all sorts of things (not just forts).
Case in point ↑ The Knit Cafe’s Confetti Mitts takes advantage of Noro’s colour-magic. There are many such examples, too numerous to count.

Wow! I wanna fort made out of Noro blankets! That is SO beautiful. I love Noro and all the things made with it. 🙂
Hi there, I love your Noro blankets! I am interested in finding the pattern for these. Where can I get them? Thanks!!!
Noro does make beautiful blankets! 2 of these blankets are a basket weave pattern broken up by a few rows of garter stitch in between. The blanket that have the diamond shapes is a pattern that’s “in development stage” and we hope to have it available soon. There are two other Noro blankets in this scene that are more difficult to make out from the picture.
One is the Woven Blanket, which you can find here:
The other is a mitered square blanket that looks excellent in Noro. It is here:
Do you have a pattern for those little dollies?? They’re so cute!
It’s on it’s way! Look for it in the next few weeks.
