If you follow me, you might know that I love, love Brooklyn Tweed knitting patterns. Last year, I knitted Jules for myself, I also knitted a couple of hats for the girls, shawls…
How can I explain my love: the patterns are always trendy and classic, well explained. And I always learn something new. It’s the kind of knitting that makes you feel that you could be an expert.
When Brooklyn Tweed Kids was launched, I had to knit one something from the collection. And lucky me, I know two little kids that might be happy with new tops.
Wyatt – once the pattern was established, it was a breeze to knit. I did size xxx. It seems quite big. I guess the little guy who getting it will grow fast anyway. I’ve used Bergerede France, Chinaillon. Once blocked, it became very soft and drapy.
I had some yarn left so i used all the remaining to knit this pretty scarf – Spore. Again it looks more complicated than in it is. The rhythm of the cable made this the perfect project during our road tip this summer.
Finally, Arlo – this one was a tough one. Nothing wrong with the pattern or the cables. But I made a very poor choice on the yarn. I got it from Jo-Anns, but I did not realised that I picked balls from two different dye lots. The texture and the colour were so different, I still don’t know how I did not notice until I had one front fully knitted.
I’m curious so see these on the kids – both tops look quite big, or it might be me not remembering how tall are 4 and 5-year old kids.
Now all is left to do is drive myself to the post office, do the paperwork and mail all of this to Australia… with a few more things that don’t necessarily require a full post
