Style Inspiration: Peerie Knits
There's something about late summer afternoons that encourage the mind to wander - and what better place to go than to the wonderful world of wool.
Caitlin Lomen, our Graphic Designer at Brooklyn Tweed, pulled together a few images that are inspiring her lately and paired them with complementary colorways of Peerie. Peerie, our squishable 100% Merino yarn, comes in an expansive palette of jewel tones and earthy neutrals, soothing cool hues and toasted spicy brights. With such a range of color choice, daydreaming about and planning your next project on a sunny summer day is quite a treat!
We reknit Stasis last Holiday in Peerie (the pattern was originally written for Loft) and I love the high contrast you’re able to get with the right color combination. The delicate motif stands out and the stitch definition of Peerie really shines at the top of the yoke. With a main color of Treehouse and C2 of Arabesque I think this would make a timeless and compelling colorwork pullover.
Peerie is the perfect yarn for keepsake baby knits, and I consider Seaglass a sort of neutral, perfect for a versatile cardigan to be worn again and again, or stored for safekeeping.
The Culm pullover is perfectly modern and wearable, its relaxed shape both comfortable and chic. My color selection of Peerie Admiral was inspired by the beautiful, bold, hand-painted ceramics of Becca Jane. Her use of that specific blue calls to mind traditional China patterns, but her illustrations are so original and organic.
Emily Greene’s Dipyramitts are a great classic ski accessory with a modern, architectural motif. I love the contrast of the burgundy with pastel in this photo by Jimmy Marble, and think Peerie in Cobbler and Muslin will be a beautiful tonal complement to each other.
Berenice’s beautiful cables paired with a modern, boxy shape is right up my alley. Knit it Peerie it will drape like a dream, and in Burnished can be dressed up or down, I can’t wait to get a ton of wear out of this pullover. I was inspired by the colors (and cats!) in a vintage textile pattern from the 40’s by Swedish artist Vicke Lindstrand.
