FREE Truman Vest Pattern in Berroco Blackstone Tweed


Berroco just published this really cute Free Vest Pattern named Truman using Berroco Blackstone Tweed!  I’ve been working with Blacsktone Tweed this week and am happy to report that it is soft, easy to work with, and has a lot of stretch to it (for some reason most tweeds do).  

The above pattern, Truman, is the worsted weight, hooded version of the vest pattern Berroco published in their Blackstone Tweed book #298, named Dickens, which is made with Blackstone Tweed Chunky. 


Berroco Booklet 298: Tweed!


Check out this great scarf pattern called Payson in the new Berroco Booklet 298!  It is made with 3 balls of Berroco Blackstone Tweed.

New Free Pattern: Easy Mobius Capelet

Easy Mobius Capelet Pattern by Haley Waxberg

Download FREE pattern HERE

The pattern is very simple, fast, and satisfying for time when you just need to produce something FAST. It is knit in the round using a really long circular needle and a nifty little cast on just for mobius knitting. To learn this easy new skill you can watch Cat Bohrdi’s great Intro to Mobius Knitting tutorial on you tube. Cat’s instructions are clear and easy to follow and you’ll be an expert in no time! The yarn we’ve used is handpainted. It is soft and has a slight sheen because of it’s silk content. Please note that silk has a tendency to grow with wear, so if you want your cowl bigger I suggest you block it bigger and if you want it smaller either subtract some sts from the cast on or reduce your needle size. That said, the look is big, loose and casual and it’s easy to go with the flow of this garment. If you want to make the cowl wider without using more yarn work exclusively in the knit stitch: the cowl won’t be reversible but ribbing sucks up yarn.
