At Brooklyn Tweed, we are passionate about wool, knitting, and design. We are committed to producing high-quality, sophisticated knitwear patterns for the modern handknitter, with a focus not only on wearable style, but also creative process, knitterly detail, and superior craftsmanship.

As such, we strive to bring our customers original patterns that are thoughtfully considered, enjoyable to work, and, most importantly, educational. We see our patterns as a mini handbook of sorts that guides you through the ins and outs of successfully creating a piece that you’ll treasure for years, while imparting you with skills that’ll help you confidently grow into your craft.

In this installment of our Foundations series — the Anatomy of a Brooklyn Tweed Pattern — we’ll walk you through the information and resources we provide in our patterns in order to aid you in making the most out of them.

To ensure that your knitting experience is a complete joy and success, we aim to provide a thorough and thoughtfully considered pattern with instructions and special resources all contained in one package. Of course, all of this information can increase the pattern’s page length! If you prefer printing your Brooklyn Tweed pattern, but like to save paper, too, we suggest first skimming the pattern electronically to determine what pages you need for working your project. Once you've decided which pages to print, you can can print just those pages following our Digital Pattern Primer.
