Brooklyn Tweed Fall 2016 Collection

Yesterday was the autumnal equinox, and what better way to celebrate the first day of fall than with another great collection? Last week the Brooklyn Tweed Fall 2016 collection came out, and it was a special one. The collection is filled with intricate cables and tantalizing textures, making me eager to grab my knitting needles and start swatching. What makes this Brooklyn Tweed collection stand out, is that it has nine base patterns that have been interpreted for both women and men. Meaning one sweater with two different styles, his and hers so to speak.

Here are some of my favorites from the Brooklyn Tweed Fall 2016 collection:

Brighton (Hers): Let me just start off with the color of this sweater. After seeing a photo of this pattern, I want to knit everything in Cinnabar. I live for a bold fire orange/red. I think Cinnabar might be my new favorite color, and it might also be my new favorite yarn color name. Now that we establish that I’m obsessed with Cinnabar, I will chat about the pattern. Brighton is a slightly cropped sweater that hits at the waist. It has simple cables over the entire sweater, giving it a lively texture. The boat neck gives it a little extra feminine touch. Brighton would be a great layering piece over a dress or a tank. I already have an entire outfit picked out for this sweater. It might involve high-waisted jeans and a YSL silk scarf.

Auster (His): Whenever I go shopping for sweaters I always end up in the men’s section, sadly pawing at the sweaters that will never fit me. Well, I say no more to that. I’m going to make the Auster in size Laura Oriana, which is size petite, extra-small. I need to start doing quite a bit of math... I can’t get enough of the Auster. It’s a handsome raglan with a branching cable motif on the front and back, and the sleeves are left in a simple reverse stockinette. I have a few button-downs that Auster would be perfect for layering over.

Mohr (Hers): The ribbed collar was the first thing I noticed on the Mohr. The collar has this nice and cozy look to it. Then I noticed the dense woven fabric. I’m a huge fan of bulky knits and the choice of cables and ribbing give Mohr an extra cozy feel to it. The tailored shaping with the beautiful collar makes Mohr a beautiful little jacket for fall.

Vika (for Adults): Vika reminds me of a handknit sweater I purchased while I was visiting Ireland a few years ago. It has a different cable motif, but the same cozy and warm look to it. Vika is the sweater you want to take to the coast with you during the winter. The cold mist will just roll off Vika while you walk along the beach. Vika is an oversized sweater with multiple cable motifs that twine up the body and sleeves. Vika will keep you warm all winter long and for years to come.
