You might remember the original Cobblestone Pullover from a decade plus ago and may have even made one. That gorgeous pattern by Jared Flood has been reimagined as a cardigan to celebrate Brooklyn Tweed’s Shelter 10 year anniversary. When the BT team was looking for preview knitters, I held my hand up high. I will add that the BT team was so pleasant to work with. Their expectations were completely and clearly spelled out, but they were totally easy-going in the way we could approach knitting the sweater. That small inside glimpse led me to believe this is one well-run company. We’ve seen how BT supports the hand-knitting community, their suppliers, shops and consumers, so this level of consideration on a little preview knit should be no surprise, but I have to tell you how delighted I was.

I chose the color Snowbound, which is a pale gray tweed; the yarn and the color suit the texture of garter stitch beautifully. Like all BT patterns, the instructions are detailed and complete. I used 7 skeins even though the pattern called for 8, made the smallest size and it wet blocked perfectly to the measurements. It’s a unisex pattern and there are options for slight, more, or no waist shaping. I choose none. It’s slightly oversized on me and I love the fit for this particular cardigan. Shelter is divine with a stretchy, wooly hand that makes the most gorgeous fabric, especially in garter. My Cobblestone is a timeless, everyday classic and I’ve already cast on for a second one, this time in Rowan Kidsilk Haze tripled.
