The latest Brooklyn Tweed collection is out, Wool People 10, and to nobody’s surprise I like the diamond-cabled shawl-collar cardigan, Kierson, and the fisherman’s sweater, Bronwyn — both appear impeccably done, and either would be a great addition to the ol’ closet of timelessness. I also like the simple raglan pullover with the massive cable panel up the front, Oda. But the piece I’m most taken with is Kirsten Johnstone’s cabled cardigan-coat, Rigel, pictured above. I can’t decide whether I’m just not quite sold on the proportions or if it’s simply a size too big for the model, but either way I think it would look better scaled down a touch as compared to the wearer. However, I am fascinated by this thing. Worked in bulky Quarry, those cables would be a ton of fast fun to knit, but what really gets me is the level of construction detail. You all know I’m a major process nerd, and the idea of the worsted-weight facings and twill-taped shoulder seams gets my heart racing. This sweater is a project, in the best sense.
