April & May 2020 - NORICHAN HO

April 01, 2020

Noriko is the knitwear and crochet designer behind Norichan Knits. She has been knitting, spinning, and crocheting for over 15 years now, and while she published her first pattern in 2008, it wasn't until 2014 that she decided to become serious about designing. Since then, she has been published in a variety of magazines and booklets, as well as her self-published designs on Ravelry.

When not designing, Noriko is typically still hard at work, as she works part time at an LYS and part time as an optometrist. You can check out what she is up to on Instagram @norichanknits!

Because the store is still closed until further notice, Noriko's beautiful samples of her new shawl pattern Tien May, her Numbat Cowl and crochet shawl Lost Lake aren't up on display yet, but we're hosting a virtual sample display on Instagram this month. Check out our feed each week to see these lush samples!
