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.

Bold geometric motifs reminiscent of Pendleton wool blankets adorn Norah’s Nomad poncho. The pattern begins at the top with shoulder shaping and is worked downward towards the center of front and back. An innovative combination of twisted stitch bands creates a sculptural braid effect to divide the larger motifs. The lower pieces are knit from the hem up and joined to form a decorative ridge at the center line, and the piece is finished off with the addition of ribbing (from picked-up stitches) along each side edge. 

This light, warm garment can be pivoted 90 degrees and worn with the side ribbing as the front hem for an alternate look (as pictured on the left).

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

Today on the blog Michele talks about her inspirations for “Yishu” and “Shui-mo” from Winter 15. Works from the Met’s “Ink Art: Past as Present in Contemporary China” exhibition directly influenced these beautiful sweaters.

US-grown wool yarns and sophisticated knitwear design for the modern handknitter
Introduction
Brooklyn Tweed is a knitwear design and yarn company founded in 2007 by Jared Flood, a blogger, designer and photographer from the Pacific Northwest. 

BT began in 2005 as a blog for knitters and wool lovers, penned by Flood after his recent relocation to NYC. Today the company is home to a dedicated team of creative professionals, committed to bringing hand knitters high quality materials and knitwear design. 

Our passion for wool is only second to our conviction to produce American yarns that preserve, support and sustain the tradition of U.S. textile production. Our wools are grown on the plains of Johnson County (WY) and are spun with care in the historic brick mill town of Harrisville (NH), where woolen spun yarns have been produced since 1794.

Our in-house design team values clean, contemporary design with an eye for superior craftsmanship and knitterly details. We strive to bring our customers original patterns that are both intuitive and enjoyable to work. 

Our mission is to integrate history and tradition with new trends and modern techniques. Brooklyn Tweed's core wool yarns, Shelter and Loft, were meticulously designed with this mission in mind and are available for purchase online or at any of our 16 flagship locations in the U.S. and abroad.
