BROOK­LYN TWEED

Knit Today Magazine - - Inspiring Colour -

WHAT’S THE FU­TURE FOR BROOK­LYN TWEED? ”We’re fo­cus­ing our ef­forts on de­vel­op­ing more unique, breed-spe­cific yarns that are made in Amer­ica. I’m re­ally ex­cited to be craft­ing some new yarns to di­ver­sify the types of projects and fab­rics we can cre­ate, as well as the ex­panded list of US man­u­fac­tur­ers and ranch­ers we will be able to sup­port.”

TELL US ABOUT YOUR NEW BOOK LAUNCH… ”All of our pat­terns are of­fered in­di­vid­u­ally and di­rectly to knit­ters through our web­site as down­load­able PDFs but one of the most com­mon re­quests has been for printed ma­te­ri­als, par­tic­u­larly knit­ting books. We’ve been chew­ing on this idea for sev­eral years, try­ing to find a way to present our work in print, sell­ing en­tire de­sign col­lec­tions which of­ten in­clude the work of sev­eral dif­fer­ent de­sign­ers, with­out com­pro­mis­ing our de­signer-friendly ethos. Our new Cap­sule se­ries is the re­sult of that search.

Cap­sule gives a sin­gle de­signer the op­por­tu­nity to de­sign a small wardrobe of knits that will be avail­able as a printed knit­ting book (as well as via in­di­vid­ual pat­tern down­loads, like the rest of our pat­tern ar­chive). We launched this new se­ries in Novem­ber 2015, lead­ing with a col­lec­tion by the very tal­ented Olga Bu­raya-Ke­fe­lian.

I’m a print-book-lover and I’ve self­ishly longed for the day when we take our work onto pa­per. This first Cap­sule book has been a real joy to cre­ate. I’m re­ally pleased with how it has all turned out and am anx­ious to work on our next one!”
