One last pattern release of the year; Bracken!! A speedy little sweater I designed for Little Woolens – it really will be the quickest sweater you have ever made! It features Brooklyn Tweed’s new(ish) yarn Quarry, and worked on two contrasting sizes of needles it creates these super squish two row furrows – a stitch pattern I am now obsessed with!

Louella was missing a straightforward layer in her wardrobe, but I didn’t have the time to spend hours working away on a something, so I immediate picked up some Quarry. I wanted to design something easy to make and wear, but had a little flare. So whilst Bracken is a simple top down raglan worked completely in stockinette (and inside out) for the girlie version I added in some a-line shaping and the always-fun dropped back hem. The boy’s version has no body shaping. This is a close fitting design so I recommend choosing a size based on chest size, and referring to the schematic. The boy style is based off the girl’s slim-fit so you might consider going up a size for a more relaxed boy fit. Whats more, you can make the sweater completely reversible use the split-slice join, as suggested by Brooklyn Tweed in their Quarry PDF here!
