The new Brooklyn Tweed Wool People 8 is here, and I have a pattern in it! I hmm-ed and haww-ed over submitting to the design call, but I’m super glad I did. This was a pretty challenging design to get out of my head and onto the needles, but I’m pretty proud of the finished sweater!
Bracondale is a super cozy, turtleneck tunic with a twist on traditional cables. I worked the front and back pieces on the bias, with braided cables and ribs along with incorporated I-cord along the hem edge. The ribbed side panels help to create a modified opening for the drop sleeve.
The turtleneck and sleeves are picked up and worked after seaming the body. The deep dark purple Shelter (Plume) is really beautiful – and I love, love, love the mustard pants they styled Bracondale with!
What’s your favourite from the collection? I love Bristol Ivy’s Keel, but that’s no surprise as she is a genius!
