Wool & Co. Feature Pattern of the Week - Flying Squirrel

Our feature pattern this week is “Flying Squirrel”, by Michiyo, knit with Brooklyn Tweed Shelter worsted weight yarn. This modern take on the classic cardigan is a perfect garment for crisp Fall evenings.

To say the staff at Wool & Co. is just a little obsessed with Brooklyn Tweed yarns would be an understatement.  We are loving how the yarns feel to knit, the color palette, and of course the amazing finished fabric the yarns create.

Stop by the store to purchase the pattern & choose from 40 colors of Shelter or order yarn & needles online with free shipping (pattern purchase from Ravelry).
