Noro Ito is a beautiful, 100 percent wool that comes in generous 437-yard balls. It knits at about 18 stitches in 4 inches on a size 8 needle. The colors are glorious, as is always true of Noro! We have found that the cowl shown knits up in 1 to 2 balls, depending on the knitter. If you buy a ball of Ito, we’ll send you the pattern along with it.
