A Brooklyn Tweed KAL!!!

Brooklyn Tweed has just announced their very first KAL! 

As the name implies this knitalong intends to get you knitting up a lacy project. You can choose the pattern that suits you best, just make it a Brooklyn Tweed yarn and/or a Brooklyn Tweed Pattern.

If you want to be au courant choose Brooklyn Tweed’s brand new pattern designed by their latest in house designer – the wonderful Gudrun Johnston. Gudrun has designed a sweet, textured shawl pattern that can be knit in either Vale (Brooklyn Tweed’s latest laceweight yarn) or Arbor. If you are new to lace-knitting choose the Arbor. The DK weight will knit up faster and it will be easier to follow your stitches with a thicker yarn. If you are an expert lace knitter, then what a great excuse to try out the new super-soft Vale!
Gudrun’s pattern is called Brora

I’m sure that this KAL will live up to the excellent quality I have come to expect when it comes to Brooklyn Tweed. Already they have announced their very detailed schedule of events.
