Wool People 13 Debuts

Brooklyn Tweed’s latest lookbook, Wool People 13, launched yesterday with 13 patterns that bring new inspiration to their catalog of natural fiber yarn. Straying from their usual, go-to designers, yet landing with a curated collection of talented fiber artists, each of the knitting patterns has the unique construction, thoughtful detail, and interesting texture characteristic of the BT brand. The sweater, hat, and neckwear designs coupled with BT’s classic yarns will create memorable pieces that will stand out as favorites in your wardrobe.

A Summer Mystery Knit Along

From designer Alicia Plummer, of Campside Shawl fame, is hosting a Mystery Knitalong that kicks off at the end of June. There’s not much known about the Spoondrift Summer Shawl, we do know that she used MCN Fingering to work the sample and that solid colors and semi-solid colors might be the way to go for this project.

CAST ON: Courage Shawl by Shannon Cook

A pattern that encourages you to get lost in the process and enjoy each stitch, Courage is a new knit shawl pattern from Shannon Cook that combines color and mosaic in a fresh way. With three colors of Worsted weight yarn – the designer used two solids and one multi-color skein – work knit and purl stitches to create the graphic, statement shawl. But with Mosaic knitting, you only use one color per row, making the project deceptively easy.
