BT Fall 15

Have you all seen the latest from Brooklyn Tweed? The Fall 2015 collection is really something. Can I show you my favorites?
Sauvie is such a simple shape but so flattering. The seed stitch and the shoulder welts add interest to the knitting, but it's pretty simple overall. Knit up in a light fingering weight tweed, it's definitely on my list.
Trailhead is serious business. Look at all those details...cables, big collar, awesome pockets. It's knit with a fingering weight held doubled, which results in a worsted weight.
Willamette is quite the scarf. The unique cable pattern is double-sided, and the pattern is written for both worsted and fingering weights for two different looks. So cool.
I love the classic look and clean colorwork of Ashland. Those delicate little patterns are so minimalist and beautiful, and the neckline and the relaxed shape are perfectly flattering.

All of these lovely pieces are designed with Brookly Tweed yarns. While we do not carry these yarns, we have some great suggestions for substitutes. The worsted weight pieces will work up beautifully in Harrisville Watershed or Highland. We have a really deep and thorough stock of both of these right now. The fingering weight pieces will work up nicely with Debbie Bliss Fine Donegal. We recently received several new colors of this yarn, so we have plenty of nice choices for you all. 

If you love these pieces, we would be more than happy to help you select the perfect yarn for your project. Stop in and see us soon!
