On my needles: Jared Flood’s Afton scarf. More cable knitting, yeah! Earlier this week, I finished his Bray Cap. Both are knitted using Rowan Lima (colour: Lima) which is soft en squishy, but it snags easily and can be a bit tricky when you have to unravel a row.
The hat is a fun, very fast knit and I’m thinking of knitting a couple more as Christmas gifts. I’m pleased with how the hat turned out, chunky and warm and a little floppy without being too slouchy. The patterns are clear and well written, with great attention to detail.
My progress on the scarf is way, way slower, but I do love its intricate cable and lace pattern and the fact that it is made up of two parts that are grafted together with the kitchener stitch. Now that the temperatures are slipping, both the scarf and hat will be ideal companions on autumn walks.
Jared Flood is such a talented designer, as are the other members of the design team at Brooklyn Tweed. Each season they come up with a fabulous collection of modern classics. These are their fall and winter collections 2013.
