This was a Noro pattern that I just had to knit last year. My Mother had seen the jacket in a yarn store and when she tried it on she fell in love with the design. The original pattern and sample jacket had been knitted in Iro but I decided to knit it using Kochoran. The colours are more muted and the blend of yarn so much softer than Iro. It was a very quick knit and apart from a couple of errors in the pattern that as an experienced knitter I could correct the instruction were quite good. Pleased to say my Mother was completely surprised when the jacket arrived and has had a lot of pleasure wearing the garment.
