Welcome the remaining winter dark with the rich warmth of Brooklyn Tweed’s Holiday 2018 collection, whether staying in bundled up by the fireside or venturing forth to explore the season’s quiet pleasures!
The Holiday 2018 collection includes new garments and old favorites reimagined.
Designers include Jared Flood, Emily Greene, Julie Hoover, and Leila Raabe.
Patterns avaiable on Ravelry.
Leila Raabe's Stasis is a round-yoke colorwork pullover inspired by the geometric motifs found in blackwork embroidery. With its minimal yet striking design, Stasis also works well in bolder color combinations.
Emily Greene's Refract (clockwise, starting upper left) offers two starting points for the exploration of fabric and geometry. Quick-knitting Quarry results in a light and airy fabric, the reversible lace motif reflected down the center of the scarf producing a striking composition. Polished Arbor results in a fabric with sleek and springy drape; the four columns of the reversible motif highlighting pleasingly crisp stitch pattern transitions.
Link, also designed by Emily Greene, is a classic cabled beanie featuring bold columns of paired rope cables interconnected by branching diagonal twists. Thoughtful details—seamless transitions from the brim ribbing to the cables, hidden crown decreases, and optional tubular edges—combine for an overall polished effect.
Julie Hoover's stunning Kimmswick puts a modern twist on one of knitting’s most traditional and well-loved styles—the Shetland tube scarf. Knitted circularly at a relaxed gauge, the double layer of stranded fabric creates a lusciously soft and pliable garment. Work bold or neutral color schemes in woolen-spun Loft for a well-blended painterly effect, or in worsted-spun Peerie for a crisp, stained-glass effect.
Jared Flood's Hazelfern socks feature an ankle decorated with pillars of chevron lace—flanked by serpentine wale stitches and mirrored cables—that continue to the top of the foot, branching out at the back of the ankle to accommodate a slipped-stitch heel flap. Worked in worsted-spun Peerie, these socks are a luxurious treat to wear when lounging at home but are also sufficiently strong and durable for afternoon strolls.
The eye-catching Scandinavian style of Jared Flood's Galloway Hat, knit in Peerie for colorwork that simply sings, will brighten the deepest winter gloom. Peerie’s worsted-spun construction results in boldly defined colorwork and a soft yet strong fabric that will wear well on many an adventure.
