As you may have noticed by now, we love Brooklyn Tweed (and Jared Flood). He has no shortage of simple and brilliant patterns. His designs include everything from baby blankets to adult sweaters and accessories, and range from simple and lovely to complex and striking. He has a finesse for knitting (and photography) that you don’t find too often, and we are simply loving tooting his horn!
Continuing on with another one of his simple comfort knitting projects, we’d like to show you the Wool Leaves Baby Blanket.
Knit with two strands of Plymouth EcoWool, Wool Leaves is a classic Shetland leaves pattern bordered with two repeats of moss stitch. Simple and brilliant, no? And when knit with a neutral color such as this, you can knit these and keep them in your gift closet for the next baby shower emergency.
If you haven’t been reading Jared’s blog, here’s a link to his post about the Wool Leaves baby blanket. His blog is a great account of his design process and some of the fun projects that he works on in his “spare time.” (Don’t we all use quotes when we talk about our spare time?) Be sure to check it out when you have a chance … as long as it doesn’t take away from your knitting time (because that is NOT the same thing as “spare time”)!
