Rowan Scottish Tweed DK is pure wool in a range of vibrant shades.
The Kathmandu Aran from Queensland Collection comes in a gorgeous range of colors and has a bit of silk and cashmere.
I also used Tahki Donegal Tweed to make Laura Irwin’s Formal Boot Bag from the cover of Bag Style. It felted up beautifully, and it was a joy to knit. The tweedy flecks in this yarn are particularly lovely.
Leslie from A Friend to Knit With designed the Libby Sweater for her daughter, using Portland Tweed. It’s an easy, swingy cardigan - perfect for a growing girl. Leslie has generously made it available for free, so check out her blog and her other free patterns.
The rain and the cold have returned to Portland, and tweed feels so cozy when the streets are wet and the sky is gray. So, pull on your boots, grab a coffee or tea and stop by Close Knit to check out our selection of warm, wooly, and yes - wintry tweeds.
