So, pretty much all of the design work (and yarn) that comes out of Jared Flood’s Brooklyn Tweed line is amazing. The designs are simple, creative, elegant, and exciting at the same time.
In the past, I’ve knit a couple of Brooklyn Tweed patterns, including (a barf green) Bridgewater and the Tweed Baby Blanket, and any time a new BT Wool People lookbook comes out, my Ravelry queue explodes a bit.
I’ve also the chance to knit with some of Brooklyn Tweed’s yarn – I made some lovely cabled (also barfy green) mittens out of Shelter in the Sap colourway, and I’ve been saving up some Loft in my stash for something special.
Today BT came out with a new lookbook and pattern series all designed for MEN! I really, really love the collection, and several pieces went directly into my queue.
I think the t-shirt inspired Redford sweater, designed by the extremely talented Julie Hoover, is my favourite of the bunch, and something my fashion-conscious and very picky spouse might actually like and wear! Timberline, designed by Jared Flood himself, is basically stunning, and I’d love to make a version for myself, to be honest.
If you haven’t checked it out yet, definitely take a look! There is a dearth of stylish, interesting, excellent knitting patterns for men out there – this collection helps to solve that problem :)
