Winter – the time for the bustle of the holidays and speedy knitting of gifts, followed by a more peaceful pause to relax, contemplate the turn of the year, and perhaps start some well-deserved “selfish” knitting for ourselves.
Brooklyn Tweed’s Winter 17 collection provides plenty of opportunities for both, with an assortment of quick-knitting accessories and cozy garments to keep your needles clicking away while it’s cold outside.
We’re excited to see new designs in Arbor, Brooklyn Tweed’s newest yarn, as well as in the Shelter, Loft, and Quarry that we already know and love.
Some favorites I can see adding to my queue:
Kirwin is the perfect popover for winter warmth, with a neckline that will work over your favorite buttondown or a long-sleeved tee. The textured fabric will give interest to neutrals or brights in Shelter. (Best part: no sleeves to knit!)
Mei combines clever details like an oversized ribbed collar and slim cropped sleeves to stay chic while being cozy in chunky Quarry. I can see knitting this in a neutral to wear with everything this winter – maybe Sandstone, or Obsidian, or Slate… no wait, what about Moonstone or Lazulite?
Nila with its split-front styling looks crisp in Arbor – the worsted-spun yarn has gorgeous stitch definition whether you choose a light or dark color. (Look at that beautiful ribbing!)
Speaking of stitch definition, Svenson has it in spades. The classic cabled pullover – always in style, especially with some thoughtful shoulder shaping included!
A cozy cocoon cardigan in Quarry? Yes please! I might need to snuggle into Toulouse and not come out until spring.
See the lookbook at Brooklyn Tweed (and stop in from January 7th through the 15th when we’ll have the trunk show!).
Patterns are available on Ravelry or at Brooklyn Tweed.
