Meet Peerie, the newest addition to the Brooklyn Tweed yarn collection. Peerie is sister to Arbor, a cousin to Loft, and yet the 100% merino fiber content makes it truly unique in the BT family.
Peerie is a fingering weight, worsted spun wool that boasts a 45 color palette. The variety of colors will be ideal for colorwork, but that is just the beginning of what can be done with this supple, 4-ply yarn. The springy, round structure gives Peerie crisp stitch definition in cables and in lace stitches, and a firm stockinette stitch will likewise keep its shape.
A colorwork cap is the perfect jumping off point for Peerie, and for the month of June, Brooklyn Tweed is offering a free download of this pattern with your purchase of 2 or more skeins of Peerie yarn! This hat can be knit in 2, 3, or 4 colors, and with so many colors to choose from the possibilities are infinite. To receive your free coupon code, simply order 2 or more skeins of Peerie yarn and we will send it with your order.
Boardwalk is an old favorite by designer Heidi Kirrmaier, originally using Brooklyn Tweed Loft. Peerie's crisp stitch definition gives added emphasis to the mitered neck detail and ribbed cap sleeves. Now in 100% merino, Boardwalk is truly a multi-seasonal layering piece.
Of course we love the Julie Hoover garment named Ashland! The striking, stranded bands can range from subtle to bold, with many color possibilities to choose from. Described as having a "polished, casual note," Ashland is an exploration of both color and technique.
Afton is a versitle pattern that encompasses 3 different sizes, and variations for 3 Brooklyn Tweed yarns. Jared Flood's own design combines both cables and lace, showcasing the incredible definition achievable with Peerie.
