It’s officially fall, and it’s time for me to pick up my City Tweed sweater that was a little too hot to work on over the summer.
City Tweed is a great yarn for fall knitting. It’s warm enough to be outerwear before you have to break out the winter coat. It’s soft enough to wear next to your skin, so you can be cozy in a sweater whether you are raking leaves or sitting in front of a fire. The yarn colors range from rich harvest tones to bright jewel tones with several neutrals as well, so it’s sure to match your fall wardrobe.
I found some wonderful inspiration when I was perusing City Tweed HW and DK projects on Ravelry. Thanks to everyone who gave me permission to use their photos! In this slide show, each picture has the knitter’s Ravelry user name, the name of the pattern, and a link to the project’s Ravelry page listed. Just click on any of the pictures to get this information.
If all of those great Ravelry projects weren’t enough inspiration for you, we just released a free City Tweed Dropped-Stitch Shawl pattern. The lacy parts were created by dropping stitches down to the cast on edge, which makes this a really simple shawl to knit. I don’t know about you, but I’m really good at dropping stitches! Except this shawl has you drop stitches in a pretty pattern, instead of in the middle of your sweater. <
