Sweater – A – Month March 2014

April 22, 2014

We have shared our love of Brooklyn Tweed (BT) before, if you haven’t yet read it, check it out here. BT has just released their look-book for Wool People 7 Spring 2014 It is beautiful and inspiring, so I thought I would share my March sweater – a BT pattern called Cypress. This pattern was released last year for Winter of 2013, you can purchase it for $7 on Ravelry and is an absolutely fantastic pattern.

I knit the vest/tee in the Briggs and Little Regal and used just shy of 3 skeins (113 g/249 m – $6.50/ball).  The construction of the vest is simple, yet stunning and I really enjoyed playing around with the tubular cast on. If you have never done a tubular cast on, I recommend it on your next sweater project, it creates a very stretchy, yet solid cast on edge, and is perfect for a sweater like this that is designed to hug your hips! I really enjoyed this tutorial for the tubular cast on.
