Truss Cardigan

This pattern was by far the favorite from the BrooklynTweed Wool People 9 Trunk Show. The boxy, versatile fit allowed this cardigan to look ideal on virtually every body type.

With its nice side detail and cropped style, there are a lot of opportunities for learning new techniques and customizing for your body in this 4 week class (alternating weeks). Plus it is worked at a relaxed gauge in Shelter making it a great layering piece for our climate.

Whether this is your first adult sweater or your 12th, you will certainly take something gorgeous home with you!

Registration Deadline: Monday, Jan 18th

Sunwalker Shawl


We have recently been smitten with the many fabulous shawls by Melanie Berg. This one, worked in only one color (variagated as it may be) is a great first (or second or third shawl) with is gradual shaping and lovely details. 

Sunwalker is a large shawl that is easily adjustable in size, and worked in a fingering weight yarn. Given its construction and stitch patterns, this is a fun project in which to learn many new techniques. Plus you will end up with a stunning shawl to wear all spring!

Have fun with the multi-colors of Koigu KPPPM as Nancy did in our sample, or let the stitches shine and sing in a solid from Shibui Staccato.

Walking on the Moon (with Heidi)


Walking on the Moon is Heidi Kirrmaier's newest design, added to a collection of growing favorites like VitaminD and Boardwalk.  This newest design is knit in Brooklyn Tweed Quarry at a gauge of 11 sts / 4 inches, so it knits up in practically no time!  Worked top down, this pullover is entirely seamless and is quite easy, especially if you've knit a top down sweater before.
