2013 has been quite a hectic year around here so far! On top of the regular day-to-day operations that make BT tick, we spent January moving into a fresh new space – a much needed move, but definitely disruptive! – as well as putting the finishing touches on our design team's new winter collection. This release feels particularly timely today, as we endure another week of below-freezing temps here in the Northeast. An assortment of cozy wool knits sounds like just the ticket, to me! The four of us (Véronik Avery, Julie Hoover, Michele Wang, and myself) had an absolute blast working on this collection. Probably no surprise there – winter is one season where our yarns feel right at home. For this collection, we set out to tell three distinct stories. The first – my personal favorite – is a modern take on traditional colorwork. (My trip to Iceland last summer certainly influenced my own designs. I just couldn't get those beautiful colorwork yokes out of my head until I tried creating one myself!) The second story features knitted loungewear in shades of grey and cream – a tonal, romantic story inspired by cozy afternoons at home. The final story – classic winterwear – is rife with cables, colors and textures that are perfect for snow days. The full collection features 18 original knitting patterns - all of which are now available for instant download. The designs in this group truly cover a diverse range, from thoughtful accessories that can be knit over a casual weekend, to deeper, more significant undertakings that will keep you company through several long winter evenings. You can view photographs of each new design, as well as pattern-specific information, schematic diagrams, and a photo essay about our shoot location (Hudson, NY) in the look book below (click "full screen" for enhanced viewing). Free copies of the look book PDF are also available for download here.

Stay warm, and be well. ______________________ Resources: The Winter 13 look book can be viewed on our website here, or download the free PDF for viewing on your tablet or device.

  • Absolutely love it. And cannot wait for the spring 2013 collection. The latest trend is lacy sweaters and cardigans. With he beautiful lace work you have done in the past, I cannot wait for spring and perhaps incorporation of your lace into sweaters and such.

  • Same question as always. Please make your patterns into children-sizes! ;)
    They are lovely, but I don’t knit things for myself. My daughters are worth it more than me…

  • I agree with others above – I think this is your best collection yet. I love the softer storyline – and seeing more Veronik designs out in the textile wild. She achieved beautiful airiness in Snowflake – I love it!
