Brooklyn Tweed - Ashland


Designed by
Julie Hoover

Modern minimalism transforms traditional stranded colorwork. Delicate peerie bands, strikingly graphic against the negative space of single-color stockinette, are reminiscent of wire fences on western rangelands. Worked in only three colors of Peerie (aptly named) or Loft, Ashland can take on very different appearances depending on the shades you choose—almost any combination of one light, one dark, and one bright should sing, and more closely related shades can produce a richly subtle effect. The pullover is knit in the round from the bottom up, with steeks for the armholes and set-in sleeve caps so that the work can continue in the round. Waist shaping and a generous neckline create a flattering garment that’s easy to layer over collared shirts or dresses. Neat tubular edges and hems and cuffs in single rib help Ashland strike a polished casual note.
