We love tweed, especially the newest member to the Kelbourne Woolens family, Lucky Tweed, a woolen spun 100% Merino wool tweed made by our friends in Donegal, Ireland. For this special collection, we wanted knits that payed homage to traditional Irish knitting, but were modern and quintessentially American in look and fit. After a few weeks of swatching and sketching, one thing became clear - we were all smitten with Lucky Tweed!
An unexpectedly robust 9-piece collection flowed off our needles; we just couldn’t stop knitting! A handful of sweaters for both women and men, a cowl, and three hats all found their way from a paper sketch to reality in a blazingly brief time span.
The Lucky Tweed Collection
We’re thrilled to present Dover, Esme, Euston, Kelby, Newbold, Olde City, Powelton, Wyatt, and York. You can find all of the Lucky Tweed Collection patterns available for purchase and download on Ravelry.
Over the upcoming weeks we’re taking a deep dive into each design to talk about techniques and useful tips to provide a helping hand! We also have two new tutorials on techniques featured in the collection!
