All of us at Twisted strive every day to make our shop a positive place where every person feels welcomed, valued, supported, and safe. Our philosophy is one of abundance - there is infinite beauty and kindness to share, and boundless joy in lifting each other up whenever we can. Hate speech and language that demeans or threatens any group or person is not acceptable. We respectfully request that while visiting our knit nights and other events you join us in celebrating and learning from our wonderful, diverse community. Thank you for your support, and we hope to see you soon!

Brooklyn Tweed Early Fall 2018 Trunk Show ~ November 26 - December 9
The conception of Brooklyn Tweed’s Early Fall 18 collection began with a curious attraction to the quiet yet compelling colors, shapes, and textures found in the art of paper folding. This attraction developed into a thought more encompassing, until it became a melding of two genres of hand making, distinct yet complementary in their processes of transforming the mundane — a sheet of aper; a continuous strand of yarn — into clever, intriguing, even playful, but more importantly, functional structures of beauty.
This purposeful collection of three accessory and five garment patterns takes advantage of the versatility of Brooklyn Tweed’s core worsted-spun yarns to simultaneously blur and illuminate the lines. They creatively challenge our perceptions of how a knitted garment can be constructed, assembled, and made. Embark on these paths that go sideways, these maneuvers that tessellate, and on these planes that fold.
The BT Early Fall 2018 patterns are available as electronic downloads and print on demand at Twisted, as well as directly from Brooklyn Tweed on their website and from Ravelry.
