Sample Knit: Montauk

Coincidentally with the re-start of my blog, Brooklyn Tweed has come out with their exceptional Winter 2014 collection in which I have knit a sample. I was lucky enough to work with the popular knitwear designer, Veronik Avery this time around and knit up the beautiful design Montauk. I was a bit daunted knitting this sample this time around for a few reasons. This was the first time I knit a full-blown sweater for Brooklyn Tweed and it was a big undertaking for me considering what little time I have. Also, when I knit these samples, keep in mind that it is the first time that this pattern is being worked up so there are no pictures of what it looks like and in some cases I get a pattern in installments and even though I had a sketch from the designer, I was having a little trouble envisioning what she wanted - especially with the collar. It was also quite a time consuming knit considering the all-over wrapped stitch pattern but I had fun with it. All turned out well in the end.
As always with these samples I only have a quick snap from my iPhone before I run it out the door to the post office. But I have linked to the Brooklyn Tweed page above where the photos are professional. Enjoy!

Looks amazing! I had no idea you were a sample knitter of executive status :)
