We’ve just got a huge shipment of Noro’s new huge yarn, Bachi. This single ply features Noro’s signature amazing color gradients and multis perfect for blankets, scarfs, and colorful hats and mitts. Like Ito, which we also have on hand in our worsted/aran collection), Bachi sports an impressive put up, so more stitching per hefty 200g mega-cake.
Bachi is a single-ply bulky weight yarn, it’s named for the oak sticks used to play Japanese taiko drums.
- Weight: Bulky
- Gauge: 10-12 sts per 4 inch/5-6 WPI
- Fibre content: 100% wool
- Needle/Hook size: US 10-11 (6-8mm)
Noro Magazine issue 15 features several patterns written especially for Bachi. Below are our top picks:
#20 Rectangular Shawl by Karen Bourquin
Four balls of Bachi make this versatile garment. Use a shawl pin to secure it in a poncho style, or belt it for an instant vest.
#10 Pointed Poncho by Sandi Rosner
This asymmetrical design is super flattering on any shape and is a cozy complement to your fall wardrobe.
