I've been in love with Noro yarn ever since I learned to knit through the process of knitting the famous Noro Scarf design. The color shifting of this yarn is simply sublime! First, came a pair of knitting books "Knit Noro" & "Knit Noro: Accessories: 30 Colorful Little Knits", where projects were photographed and presented just as beautifully as the yarn it showcased. Now, at long last, comes "Crochet Noro"!
As far as difficulty, like the Noro knitting books there is very little for beginners here. Overall, I thought the marked difficulty rating for many of the projects seemed too high for what was required in the pattern?? Just my opinion though :)
Bottom Line: Love Noro? Buy. Looking for a gorgeous crochet coffee-table book? Buy. Looking for nice patterns? A good bet.
