Brooklyn Tweed Patterns - Kelpie (Winter 14 Collection) - by Jared Flood Description

“The traditional Shetland Hap shawl is a genre that I gravitate to time and again in my design work. I find it to be such a great combination of beauty & utility, while providing a comforting and interesting knitting experience. For this variation I wanted to modernize the look by creating an interesting, non-traditional construction, playing with tonal color variations, and adding bands of elongated stitches into the traditional shale border motif. While traditional haps are square in format, this version is triangular to match the more commonly-created style of our present day knitting culture.” – Jared Flood MATERIALS Version I (photographed): Fingering weight wool yarn in the following approximate amounts: 665 yards Color 1 (C1); 15 yards each of Colors 2 and 3 (C2 & C3); 20 yards each of Colors 4 and 5 (C4 & C5); 30 yards of Color 6 (C6) Brooklyn Tweed Loft (100% American Targhee-Columbia wool; 275 yards/50g): 3 skeins C1; 1 skein each (or an oddment each) of C2, C3, C4, C5 & C6 Photographed in colors Stormcloud (C1), Sap (C2), Fauna (C3), Tent (C4), Button Jar (C5), and Artifact (C6) Version II (alternate 2-color version): Fingering weight wool yarn in the following approximate amounts: 665 yards Color 1 (C1); 100 yards of Color 2 (C2) Brooklyn Tweed Loft (100% American Targhee-Columbia wool; 275 yards/50g): 3 skeins C1; 1 skein C2 GAUGE 19 stitches & 38 rows (19 ridges) = 4" in garter stitch; after moderate blocking Note: Stretch swatch during blocking by 8-10%; allow to dry completely and rest for at least 12 hours before measuring.
