February’s Yarn Selection
Brooklyn Tweed specializes in gorgeous designs expressed through their American-made wools. It was founded by knitwear designer and photographer Jared Flood in 2010, and is now based in Portland Oregon.
Quarry is a lofty, chunky-weight yarn that is cleverly spun in a manner that appears to be unspun. The colors are heathered but almost evoke a tweedy-look. Our selections, in honor of Valentines Day, are Garnet and Hematite.
February’s Patterns: Love Triangle Shawlettes
This month’s Love Triangle shawlettes are both great introductions to stitching triangles. The knit version is worked from the top-center out in a welt pattern, then a wide, mock cable column border.
The crochet version is more abstract-looking than it’s knit sister. Its uber-open construction is worked from the bottom-up with a series of chains and DC clusters
