Happy New Year!!

The first pattern of 2012 was released this week, Ash, a cardigan/jacket from the 2nd edition of Wool People from Brooklyn Tweed.

Ash is knit with 2 strands of Loft, an airy fingering weight wool so light that the doubled strands when knit up remind me more of down comforters then of woolens. The body is worked in an all over mock cable (no cable needles required!) inspired quilted fabrics. All the details can be found here and here. (The zipper easily be replaced with a ribbed button band, I’ve written a few notes about that here.)

If you haven’t already, please give your self a moment to enjoy the whole of the Wool People 2 Look Book its a stunningly photographed, beautifully cohesive collection.  The thrill of seeing my work in the company of so much talent is indescribable, its a huge honor to have been invited to contribute to this project.

    This was one of the first patterns I queued when I saw that Wool People 2 had come out. Love the mock cables!

    Ash was love at first sight for me, and in fact, it’s the first pattern I chose to start chronicling my 12 month Brooklyn Tweed odyssey on Feel free to have a laugh at my stupidity with regard to the meaning of “mock cables.” Somehow, I’d convinced myself that the cables would be formed by cleverly placed purl bumps. In total denial until I saw the pattern chart. All’s well now, however, and I’m happy to report that the cables really do fly off the needles at a very satisfying rate. Thank you for dreaming up such a gorgeous and well-written pattern. I can’t wait to zip into this beauty!
