Wee Levenwick

.

Every once in a while, a design comes along that becomes an instant classic. It’s the perfect combination of wearability and knit-ability: both effortlessly flattering and at the same time so engaging to knit that you can’t put your needles down. Long-time Brooklyn Tweed collaborator Gudrun Johnston truly has a knack for this fine-tuned balance, and we knew the second we saw Levenwick – her sweater design for our very first Wool People collection – that it was a perfect example.

We love the combination of classic Old Shale lace with clean, simple reverse stockinette in this sweater, and we’ve loved seeing the more than a thousand projects on Ravelry (!!) come off the needles over the last few years.  So when Gudrun approached us about adding a version for the wee ones in your life, we thought it was a brilliant idea!

We’re happy to announce that Wee Levenwick, sized for children (ages 2-10 years), is now available through for download at Brooklyn Tweed as well as on Ravelry. We can’t wait to see all the adorable, pint-sized variations to come!
