Brooklyn Tweed has just launched their newest yarn, Peerie and they’re celebrating with a knit-a-long for their Lucerne hat pattern. We’ve decided to join in on the fun! Peerie is an American sourced fingering weight 4-ply merino that is just so, so lovely and it’s absolutely perfect for projects like Lucerne.
Inspired by Swiss design, Lucerne features symmetrically-aligned pops of color with minimalist effort. A great project for beginners who are looking to add colorwork to their skill set, it’s a stranded colorwork pattern that is worked as easy 3-and-1 repeats. This enjoyable and intuitive motif can be knit with just two colors or with as many as four.
Brooklyn Tweed has added a fantastic coloring sheet to help you choose the perfect combinations. How sweet is that? And with an extensive palette of 45 brilliant shades, the possibilities for color-play are limitless! The coloring sheets are included with the pattern, but you can download them now by visiting their site: Lucerne Coloring Sheets.
The KAL is running from June 4-11, and those who purchase one or more skeins of Peerie receive the Lucerne hat pattern for free (offer is until June 30). Pop in our seaside shop or visit us online to select your colors for this fun KAL!
