Brooklyn Tweed: Umaro Throw
Over the past few years of knitting I’ve made a lot of things but this one is my favorite.
The pattern comes from Jared Flood, of Brooklyn Tweed, who I consider one of my biggest knitting inspirations.
Was it hard?
-No. The BT directions are always so clearly written and thorough. I did find it a little tough work on this if I was somewhat distracted – That usually led to mistakes. The skill level for this pattern is easy and any beginner knitter could do it.
Was it quick?
-Quick for an afghan, yes. But it does take time. The amount of time you spend on this project will be well worth it. It’s knit on a size 15 needle and the yarn was held double so you see progress very quickly which will keep you going.
I love afghans. They’re probably my most favorite thing to knit and to give. They’re so simple to knit – no shaping, no seaming, and you just weave in the ends when you’re done. Every couch should have a knitted afghan.
Yesterday was like Christmas in October because THIS showed up at my house…I can’t wait to swatch it up and start a biiiig project with it!
