photos by Jared Flood for Brooklyn Tweed
I've been dying to share one of the freelance projects I worked on this year, and now I finally can! I'm beyond thrilled to be included in Brooklyn Tweed's Wool People, Volume 3. For the first time ever my knitting patterns are available for purchase, and I'm so excited. I can't believe my good fortune to have my work included alongside the work of such amazing knitwear designers, in a collection with such beautiful photos, designs, colors, and yarn.
Do to the popularity of the Fjord and Öljett hats that I made for my shop last year, I decided to use them for this project. Working with Jared was such a great way to get my feet wet with creating knitting patterns, as he was just as kind and helpful as can be. The patterns are exactly the same as the ones I used to make the hats for the shop, the only difference being that I used Brooklyn Tweed yarn for these and thus changed the gauge from dk to worsted. The yarn is awesome, and I highly recommend it. BT has such great heathery colors that my mind is just swimming with possible color combos for the marled Öljett hat.
Both of these hats are such fun to make that I want to do one of each in every color. If you're on Ravelry, you can purchase a pdf of the Öljett pattern here and the Fjord here. If not, you can get them directly through Brooklyn Tweed here. I also have a few more knitting patterns up my sleeve that will be published through other venues soon as well.
