Brooklyn Tweed Fort (Men 1 Collection) - by Jared Flood

"There is always so much inspiration to be found when studying military clothing. I love the juxtaposition of a well-tailored garment with a utilitarian purpose. This sweater recalls those traditions (a rich forest green fabric, charcoal grey elbow patches, a double-ribbed neckband) and pairs them with textures found in traditional fisherman knits (ribbed "seam" detailing, allover checkerboard patterning). Though the shape is simple, the details make it special." * Jared Flood MATERIALS Approximately 1275 (1395, 1495, 1670, 1800, 1985) yards of worsted weight wool yarn (MC) Approximately 90 yards of fingering weight wool yarn (CC; for Elbow Patches only) Brooklyn Tweed Shelter (100% American Targhee-Columbia wool; 140 yards/50 g): 10 (10, 11, 12, 13, 15) skeins MC Brooklyn Tweed Loft (100% American Targhee-Columbia wool; 275 yards/50 g): 1 skein CC Photographed in color Artifact (MC) & Cast Iron (CC) GAUGE Sweater Gauge (worsted weight yarn): 20 stitches & 35 rounds = 4" in Checkerboard Stitch, using Size A needle(s) and MC, after blocking Patch Gauge (fingering weight yarn): 28 stitches & 56 rows = 4" in garter stitch, using Size E needle(s) and CC, after blocking NEEDLES Size A (for Main Fabric): One each 16" and 32" circular needles, and one set of DPNs* in size needed to obtain Sweater Gauge Suggested Size: 4.5 mm (US 7) Size B (for Ribbing): One each 16" and 32" circular needles, and one set of DPNs* two sizes smaller than Size A needle(s) Suggested Size: 3.75 mm (US 5) Size C (for Collar lining and Tubular Cast On only): One each 16" and 32" circular needles, and one set of DPNs* three sizes smaller than Size A needle(s) Suggested Size: 3.5 mm (US 4) Size D (for Collar Turning Round only): One 16" circular needle, two sizes larger than Size A needle(s) Suggested Size: 5.5 mm (US 9) Size E (for Elbow Patches only): One pair of straight or a circular needle(s) in size needed to obtain Patch Gauge listed above Suggested Size: 2.25 mm (US 1) Note: 32" circular needle can be used instead of 16" circular needle and DPNs if using Magic Loop Method for working small circumferences in the round FINISHED DIMENSIONS 38 (41.25, 44.5, 47.5, 50.75, 54)" circumference at chest Intended Ease: + 3-4" Sample shown is size 44.5" with +4.5" ease on model SKILL LEVEL 3 of 5 Images © Brooklyn Tweed / Jared Flood
