We have a new yarn at the shop that we think you are going to want to work with. We asked a couple of our sample knitters to “test drive” a few skeins by knitting up a couple of lovely Brooklyn Tweed patterns.Rowan Tweed Aran is a 100% wool yarn that is deliciously soft. It is the largest gauge member of the Rowan Tweed family that includes our fingering weight favorite: Fine Tweed. The Aran version gets 17-19 stitches and 23-25 rows to 4 inches on US 7 - 8 needles. Each 50 gram skein has 105 yards. We think that it could be a great substitute for Brooklyn Tweed’s Shelter, for those of you looking for a tweedy yarn option to knit up these beautiful patterns. One of our sample knitters knit up Michele Wang’s Broome. This beret and mittens set was included in the BT Fall 11 collection. She made a few pattern modifications based on the comments she found on other Ravelry pattern notes. By removing a couple of pattern repeats, she made the beret a more perfect fit for her lovely daughter. This is Kirkwood, a scrumptious scarf designed by Julie Hover. This pattern was part of the BT Winter 13 collection published last winter. The simple cable pattern highlights the fun tweed of the yarn and makes for a rustic accessory that anyone would want to snuggle into.We have a beautiful spectrum of colors in stock of Rowan Aran Tweed for you to choose from. We can also help you find the perfect Brooklyn Tweed pattern to knit. We hope that you can stop by to check out these samples and see what else we have in the shop for you to choose from.
