Brooklyn Tweed Winter 2017 Collection

Winter came a little early this year. We had a bit of snow on Monday and I’m not sure what ended up happening on Thursday since I escaped to Los Angeles before I could find out. I don’t remember when was the last time it snowed this early in Portland. Apparently, snow is still in the forecast for next week, so I prepared early in case I get snowed in. I have all my yarn and projects picked out from Brooklyn Tweed’s Winter 2017 collection that came out this week. The new collection has 16 patterns that were designed for a cozy, warm winter.

Here are the patterns I have lined up for my winter that will be filled with slow knitting, tea, wool blankets, and napping:

Prime Pullover: Give me a boxy pullover any day of the week and I will start happily knitting away. Prime starts with a stockinette yoke that then transitions into a welted section of lateral braids, and ends with ribbing. I love trying new things and I’m really excited about the lateral braids. I will be knitting mine in Snowbound, but this would look great in a bright color as well.

Rivage Coat: I love this coat. It’s simple and a showstopper all in one. The coat is completely stockinette except for some small knit details like the ribbing on the cuffs and a purl gutter along the edge. The color-blocking is what stands out in this minimal effort knee-length coat. That being said, I decided to knit mine entirely in one color. This coat is simple in a perfect way and I immediately knew I wanted to knit one in Cinnabar. What better way to stop traffic and make a statement than in a vibrant fire orange-red coat.

Stonehaven: Is it odd that I want to make this my housecoat? All I can picture is me wrapped in this cozy, batwing, chunky knit cardigan while sitting in my favorite chair reading a book. The voluminous batwing arms are sweetly whispering “knit me”, and I’m not going to fight it. I’ve never knit eyelets in a chunky weight yarn before. Stonehaven will keep me engaged with all its textural details. I can’t wait to have the best housecoat ever! I will be casting on with Gypsum. I just need to remind myself to never spill anything while wearing my Stonehaven.
