Exciting News! Brooklyn Tweed released its Winter 17 collection this week and all of the designs are stellar! I knit a sample for this collection - the beautiful Proof Scarf.
Proof is designed by Jared Flood and it is worked up in Brooklyn Tweed's newest offering of yarn, Arbor, in the color Vintner. I was lucky enough to get a whole box full of this yarn to work up the scarf before it was even released. Arbor is a DK weight and it strays away from BT's signature type of tweedy yarn like Shelter and Loft. I loved knitting with this yarn. It is a wonderful wool that knits up a smooth fabric with crisp stitch definition. And this deep wine-colored red is lovely.
This scarf has a lot going on - forked ribs, cables, and cartridge rib - but they all come together to make a harmonious design. The beginning and end have a tubular cast-on and cast-off which give it a professional look. It is really long as well. Great for bundling up on cold winter days.
I really liked knitting this sample. It definitely kept my interest and I loved watching all of those cables get worked up!
