Frostpeak

$14.00
A svelte turtleneck pullover in Loft belongs at the heart of a wardrobe. Add a beautiful yoke that incorporates purl stitches for subtle texture and you’ve got a striking and timeless design. A high-contrast palette draws the eye ever deeper into the forest forms of the intricate motif. Trim tailoring and a ribbed neck that can be worn scrunched or folded make this sweater easy to dress up or down. Frostpeak is equally successful with the light and dark values reversed. Yardage Fingering weight wool yarn in the following approximate amounts 1740 (1960, 2170, 2410, 2645, 2915, 3150) yards Color 1 (C1) 130 (140, 150, 160, 205, 215, 230) yards Color 2 (C2) Yarn Brooklyn Tweed Loft (100% American Targhee-Columbia Wool 275 yards/50 grams) 7 (8, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12) skeins of Color 1 (C1) 1 skein of Color 2 (C2) Photographed in colors Cast Iron (C1) & Snowbound (C2) Gauge 26 stitches & 39 rounds = 4” in stockinette stitch with Size A needle, after blocking 26 stitches & 26 rounds = 4” in chart pattern with Size B needle, after blocking Note: Correct length of the one-piece yoke is dependent upon achieving the stated round gauge. Needles Size A (for Single-Color Stockinette Stitch) One each 16” and 24” (or 32” for larger sizes) circular needles and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs) in size needed to obtain gauge listed Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5) Size B (for Two-Color Rounds of Chart Pattern) One each 16” and 24” (or 32”) circular needles, one size larger than Size A Suggested Size: 4 mm (US 6) Due to significant variance among knitters, your colorwork fabric should be swatched and wet-blocked prior to knitting your sweater to determine whether or not this needle size should be larger, smaller or equal to Size A.

Gurnsey Wrap

$10.00
Textured patterns found on traditional fishermen’s sweaters adorn this simple and practical stole. The knitting is straightforward, accessible to the adventurous beginner. The wrap achieves its generous dimensions and fluid drape through the use of blocking wires, typically used to put knitted lace under tension as it dries to open up the stitch motifs. Wires allow for even stretching of the fabric while maintaining a crisp, straight edge on all sides. Yardage DK Version - Approximately 1160 total yards of DK weight yarn Worsted Version - Approximately 630 yards of worsted weight wool yarn Yarn DK Version - 8 skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Arbor (100% American Targhee Wool; 145 yards/50g) Worsted Version - 5 skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Shelter (100% American Targhee-Columbia Wool; 140 yards/50g) Samples photographed in colors Degas (Arbor) and Soot (Shelter) Gauge DK Version - 20 stitches & 32 rows = 4? in textured pattern, after stretch-blocking Worsted Version - 14 stitches & 24 rows = 4? in textured pattern, after stretch-blocking Needles DK Version - One pair of straight needles or a 32? circular needle* in size needed to obtain gauge listed - Suggested needle size: 4 mm (US 6) Worsted Version - One pair of straight needles or a 32? circular needle* in size needed to obtain gauge listed - Suggested needle size: 5 mm (US 8) Knitter’s preferred style of needle may be used Finished Dimensions DK Version - 16½” (42 cm) x 77 ½” (197 cm) rectangle Worsted Version - 16½” (42 cm) x 77 ¼” 197 cm rectangle Measurements taken from relaxed fabric after stretch-blocking.

High Pines Cowl

$10.00
Branching half-twisted rib and knit-purl texture shifts combine to decorate this shaped cowl with stitchwork that conjures alpine evergreens. Columns of clustered stitches that are decreased and then restored in the same maneuver punctuate the motifs, which subtly diminish toward the top edge for a fit that’s wider at the shoulders and slightly closer about the neck. Yardage 390 yards of DK weight yarn Yarn 3 skeins Brooklyn Tweed Arbor (100% American Targhee wool; 145 yards/50 grams) Samples photographed in colors Klimt and Cobbler Gauge 28 stitches & 30 rounds = 4” in chart pattern with Size A needle(s) Measurement taken from relaxed fabric after blocking Needles Size A (for Lower Ribbing and Main Fabric) One 24” circular needle in size needed to obtain chart gauge listed Suggested Size: 4 mm (US 6) Size B (for Upper Ribbing) One 16” circular needle, two sizes smaller than Size A Suggested Size: 3½ mm (US 4) Finished Dimensions 28½” (72.5 cm) circumference at bottom 25¼” (64 cm) circumference at top 11½” (29 cm) height Tutorials for all special techniques listed below are included in the pattern: Rib Cabled Cast On 1x1 Tubular Bind Off Kitchener Stitch (Grafting) Learn More

Koto

$12.00
The always-innovative Olga Buraya-Kefelian brings us a modern pullover in Shelter, pairing a high-relief fabric with bold construction for a futuristic look. Slender welts accentuate the scoop of the hem, which is shaped with short rows to produce a silhouette Audrey Hepburn would have coveted, and the perfect ring collar completes the effect. Koto’s body and sleeves are worked in the round to the underarm, then worked flat with simultaneous shoulder shaping on the front and back. The short rows use the Shadow Wrap method, which is fully explained in the pattern. The collar is worked from stitches picked up after seaming and faced with stockinette fabric for added structure. Tiny facings at the hem and cuffs make for a beautiful, minimalist finish that doesn’t interrupt the lines of the sweater. Pale colors—we used Snowbound—will amplify the corrugated texture of Koto, while dark shades will diminish the effect. Yardage 1235 (1290, 1340, 1395, 1490, 1600) yards of worsted weight wool yarn Yarn 9 (10, 10, 10, 11, 12) skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Shelter (100% American Targhee-Columbia wool; 140 yards/50g) Photographed in color Snowbound Gauge 18 stitches & 32 rounds = 4? in Articulated Rib with Size A needle(s), after blocking Needles Size A (for Main Fabric): One each 16? and 32? circular needles and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs) in size needed to obtain gauge listed Suggested Size: 4½ mm (US 7) Size B (for Facings): One each 16? and 32? circular needles and one set of DPNs, one size smaller than Size A Suggested Size: 4 mm (US 6) 32? circular needle can be used instead of DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (i.e., Sleeves).

Prime Pullover

$14.00
Prime is a textural riff on our favorite boxy pullovers. Welts on the lower torso are halved by a narrow vertical element, while the yoke is in clean stockinette fabric. Exaggerated drop shoulders and just a hint of A-line shaping through the torso finesse the roomy fit, and the light warmth of Loft makes this an easy piece to incorporate into your wardrobe. Double-deep single ribbing on the hem and bracelet-length cuffs further heightens the geometry, and transitions in fabric are subtly marked by a lateral braid. Yardage 1705 (1890, 2155, 2385, 2690, 2935) total yards of fingering weight wool yarn Yarn 7 (7, 8, 9, 10, 11) skeins Brooklyn Tweed Loft (100% American Targhee-Columbia wool; 275 yards/50 grams) Photographed in color Woodsmoke Gauge 24 stitches & 40 rows = 4” in Welt Pattern with Size A needle(s), after blocking 24 stitches & 34 rows = 4” in stockinette stitch with Size A needle(s), after blocking Needles Size A (for Main Fabric) One pair of straight needles or a 24” circular needle in size needed to obtain gauge listed Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5) Size B (for Ribbing) One pair of straight needles or a 24” circular needle and one 16” circular needle, two sizes smaller than Size A Suggested Size: 3¼ mm (US 3) Size C (optional; for Tubular Cast On only) One pair of straight needles or a 24” circular needle, one size smaller than Size B Suggested Size: 3 mm (US 2½) Knitter’s preferred style of needle may be used.

Shoji

$12.00
Wrap up two elegant ways in the same cocoon cardigan. With the ribbed edge upward, Shoji features a shawl collar, three-quarter length sleeves, and a garter hem deeply split into tails at the center back. Turn it upside down and the fronts hang with an intriguing zigzag, the sleeves bare your elbows, and the ribbing curves gracefully below hip length. The knitting is simplicity itself: a long rectangle of pebbled texture stitch folded and sewn into the final shape, with stitches picked up for the double-ribbed collar after assembly. The crisp structure of Arbor throws the stitch texture into vivid relief. Short rows add height to the collar and create the curvilinear form shown here, but may be omitted to make this garment accessible to beginners. Yardage 1795 (1885, 2080, 2285, 2495, 2715) total yards of DK weight wool yarn Yarn 13 (13, 15, 16, 18, 19) skeins Brooklyn Tweed Arbor (100% American Targhee wool; 145 yards/50 grams) Photographed in color Driftwood Gauge 24 stitches & 34 rows = 4” in Texture Pattern with Size A needle(s), after blocking Needles Size A (for Main Fabric) One pair of straight needles or a 32” circular needle in size needed to obtain gauge listed Suggested Size: 4 mm (US 6) Size B (for Ribbing) One 32” circular needle, one size smaller than Size A Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5) Knitter’s preferred style of needle may be used Finished Dimensions 28 (30, 32, 34, 36, 38)” / 71 (76, 81.5, 86.5, 91.5, 96.5) cm length Sized to fit approximately 30–32 (34–36, 38–40, 42–44, 46–48, 50–52)” / 76–81.5 (86.5–91.5, 96.5–101.5, 106.5–112, 117–122, 127–132) cm bust Sample shown is size 30” length on model with 34” (86.5 cm) bust Tutorials for all special techniques listed below are included in the pattern: Short Rows: Yarn Over Method Learn More

Townes

$16.00
Color inversion sets this elegant pullover apart. A five-color Loft gradient graces the lower torso and sleeves, with a snowfall of stranded colorwork blending the transitions. The yoke is a modified raglan with novel repositioning of the decreases to form plumes of flowing stitches. Gentle A-line shaping and a ribbed neckband wide enough to allow layering make this piece easy to wear and love. Consider a soothing run of greens, blues, or greys as alternative palettes. Yardage Fingering weight wool yarn in the following approximate amounts: 335 (360, 400, 430, 475, 510) yards Color 1 (C1) 180 (195, 210, 225, 240, 255) yards Color 2 (C2) 185 (200, 215, 235, 250, 270) yards Color 3 (C3) 225 (245, 265, 290, 310, 330) yards Color 4 (C4) 755 (855, 930, 1030, 1160, 1255) yards Color 5 (C5) Yarn Brooklyn Tweed Loft (100% American Targhee-Columbia wool; 275 yards/50 grams) 2 skeins of Color 1 (C1) 1 skein of Color 2 (C2) 1 skein of Color 3 (C3) 1 (1, 1, 2, 2, 2) skein(s) of Color 4 (C4) 3 (4, 4, 4, 5, 5) skeins of Color 5 (C5) Photographed in colors Fossil (C1), Woodsmoke (C2), Stormcloud (C3), Truffle Hunt (C4), and Pumpernickel (C5) Gauge 25 stitches & 34 rounds = 4” in stockinette stitch or chart pattern, after blocking Note: Correct length of the one-piece yoke is dependent upon achieving the stated round gauge Needles Size A (for Single-Color Rounds of Main Fabric) One each 24” and 32” circular needles and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs) in size needed to obtain gauge listed Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5) Size B (for Two-Color Rounds of Main Fabric) One each 24” and 32” circular needles and one set of DPNs, one size larger than Size A Suggested Size: 4 mm (US 6) Due to significant variance among knitters, your colorwork fabric should be swatched and wet-blocked prior to knitting your sweater to determine whether or not this needle size should be larger, smaller or equal to Size A.
