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.
