The Brooklyn Tweed Winter 2016 collection came out last week, and I’m in cardigan heaven! I’m not sure if it’s because I’m really lacking a good cardigan in my life, but my top three favorites from the collection all happen to be cardigans. Leave it to all the talented designers that work with Brooklyn Tweed to make me want to stop all my other knitting projects and start on these.
Corvid: Two words: power cardigan. I want to stomp, pose, and twirl in this. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect cardigan for work, running around town, and lounging at home, and I found it, now I just need to make it. I would typically want to knit this in Cast Iron, but I’m seriously thinking about knitting Corvid in Homemade Jam.
Intersect: Hello there, classy. I will make you in every color of Loft and wear you when I want to feel sophisticated and chic—so, all the time.
Snoqualmie: Michele Wang outdid herself. The cable work on Snoqualmie is beyond dreamy. Ladies, it’s time to retire your grandpa sweaters and upgrade to the epitome of cozy cardigans.
Riptide: Yes, I know. Riptide is not a cardigan, but I had to mention it because of the amazing brioche cowl and because I love all chunky knits. Talk about turtleneck upgrade! I want to live in this sweater.
Which pattern is your favorite? I know it’s hard to pick one, I couldn’t even stick to three.
