Brooklyn Tweed: Umaro Throw

Posted on

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. Pattern:  Umaro Yarn: Cascade Eco Wool (held double). It's a very affordable choice for an afghan. Ravelry Project 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!

    Hi Robin,

    I’m not sure where the patterns can be purchased locally. You could try contacting Brooklyn Tweed, the makers of the pattern. I bet they can tell you! Best of luck.
