This fantastic new addition to our magazine collection… Noro Magazine’s Premiere Issue. It’s packed with great knits ranging from more simpler starter projects to patterns for the more advanced knitter. Something for everyone! The Man’s slouchy hat featured in the magazine was knitted up by the lovely Bel here at York Street. She used two different colours of Noro Kureyon to create this design.
The image below shows how the beanie is worn in magazine
