Turn a Square - Oh for the love of Noro

Recently I have developed a love of all things Noro. I can waste hours on Ravelry looking at things people have knit with it.

I spent at least 30 minutes clicking through the Turn a Square projects. And then promptly started my own.

I had a acquired a couple of balls of Silk Garden from my friend Jen when she was destashing recently. And, I noticed that in one of them, as long as I didn't get into the purple, it could make quite a manly Turn a Square hat.

Yes, it's quite manly. Perfect for the man I gifted this to for Christmas.

The Specs:

The Pattern: Turn a Square by Jared Flood (free Rav download there)
The Yarn: About a half a skein or less of Valley Yarns Northampton and about half a ball of Noro Silk Garden in color 246.
The Needles: US 5 & 7.
The Time to Knit: About a week and a half.
The Mods: None. I think I followed the pattern exactly.

I think everyone needs to knit one of these. Or 13. Whatever.

Happy knitting!


  1. Love the hat! I too share the Noro love. Planning a few projects now in fact!

  2. That is a great pattern! I used it for the boyfriend's xmas gift but didn't use Noro or the striping pattern (his choice sadly for me). I do plan to make it the right way eventually because I love the idea. And the sizing is great- fits him perfectly and me too!
