Our newest design team member, Norah Gaughan, is teaching a new class on Creativebug!
Knit along with Norah as she guides you through the seamless construction of a cleverly designed shawl, picking up stitches along the way and creating some amazing textures. Worked in our Shelter yarn, the intricate patchwork details and rustic design remind us of a log cabin quilt, perfect for a cool summer evening in the woods.
In celebration of Norah's classes, Creativebug is offering a 2-week free trial offer for Brooklyn Tweed followers, with the following sign up link: http://bit.ly/1bbBOER

Tapestry’s subtle colorwork is reminiscent of fine needlepoint. This long jacquard cardigan in five shades of Loft features chevrons worked with purl stitches to interlock the colors and create intriguing texture. 

Tapestry is worked in the round with steeks, which are fully enclosed by the knitted-on cased edging during finishing. The wrap-front torso is worked without shaping and is designed to be worn with lots of ease. Set-in half sleeves keep the proportions balanced and make this a great silhouette to wear when cooking, sewing or doing any other hand work (no drooping sweater cuffs to interfere!) Wear it draped  open or belt it for a more dressed-up look.

Inspired by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, Midway features a broad A-line skirt accentuated by triangular chevron panels in varying scales. A cozy ribbed cowl neck balances the shape and provides warmth for winter wandering. 

Worked entirely in the round with sinuous raglan lines and short row shaping to enhance fit, Midway is designed with postive ease for a relaxed feel.
