Feature Pattern of the Week - Alloy

Alloy by Michele Wang,
Brooklyn Tweed Shelter, colors Fossil & Cast Iron

Alloy by talented designer Michele Wang takes the basic textured pullover to new places with modern color-blocked inserts that give the piece a unique, couture look. This polished piece still maintains a rustic luxury knit in Brooklyn Tweed’s epic Shelter yarn. Shelter is a worsted weight, woolen-spun yarn that manages to be warm, yet lightweight at the same time. The yarn is spun from 100% American Targhee-Columbia wool.

Available in a wide array of gorgeous tweeds & marled colorways, Shelter blooms beautifully when blocked & knits into garments that will last a lifetime.

Here are the materials you will need to knit this special sweater:


34½ (38, 41¼, 44¾, 48, 51¼)” circumference at chest (seamed)
Sample shown is size 38” with + 4″ ease on model


Brooklyn Tweed Shelter (140 yards/50 grams):
5 (6, 6, 7, 7, 7) skeins Color 1 (C1)
2 (2, 2, 3, 3, 3) skeins Color 2 (C2)
Photographed in colors Fossil (C1) and Cast Iron (C2)

  • Size A (for Main Fabric): Size US 7, 32″ circular needle
  • Size B (for Ribbing): Size US 5, 16” & 32″ circular needles
  • Size C (optional; for Tubular Cast On only): Size US 4, 32″ circular needle

Note: You will need two US 5 circular needles (or one size smaller or larger), to divide the stitches for the tubular bind off on the collar.

It is always handy to have plenty of stitch markers on hand when knitting garments. We love having the Cocoknits Flight of Stitch Markers in our notions bag. It has a marker for just about every project.
