"Yukata" reflects a firework of colours and the cool summer kimono it is named after. Identical in fibre composition to the popular worsted-weight Noro Tsubame, sport weight Yukata is a deliciously soft and strong silk, wool, and polyamide blend. The magical colours flying off your needles in this painterly self-striping yarn will delight and fascinate you.
The three launch patterns for Noro Yukata (two crochet and one knit) are pictured above and are available as individual PDFs on Ravelry or as part of Noro Magazine Issue 20 and Noro Outtakes #20 respectively. The 4 ball retro crocheted ruana pattern #03 Augustina is free with yarn purchase, so let us know in your order notes if you would like us to include a copy.
As a sport weight, Yukata is a similar thickness to Noro Sonata and Noro Silk Garden Sock, so feel free to substitute it in patterns, keeping in mind that each oversized ball of Yukata contains a whopping 720 meters / 787 yards!
