April 1st - June 17th

This past winter we had two Berenice samples in the shop as a part of the Brooklyn Tweed Trunk Show. The pattern immediately jumped into all of our Ravelry queues! The lightweight wool of Loft or Peerie make a great Spring/Winter transition sweater. Layer it with other knits for cooler mornings and evenings, or on its own for warmer afternoons.

Many of our customers loved the sweater, but said they would never take on a project that seemed so complicated.

Well, now is the perfect opportunity to flex your knitting skills and tackle a sweater with some lace and cables. Join our Monday night and Wednesday morning knitting groups for help and support while knitting your Berenice. Our knitting groups are always free, no reservations required! Berenice is available in a wide range of sizes, and it is easy to customize the fit by selecting a size with more or less ease than the original pattern calls for.

Don't want to knit an adult size sweater? Berenice was originally a child's size sweater and we are including it in our KAL, so knit a Berenice for the little one in your life. If you want a superwash option for the child's sweater, try Berroco Ultra Wool Fine.

Yarn Requirements:

Adult: 42½ (46½, 50½, 54½, 58½, 62½)” bust circumference, recommended ease of 10-12". To figure out the correct size take your bust measurement and add 11", then find the size that is within an inch of that measurement.

Loft - 8 (8, 9, 10, 11, 11) skeins

Peerie- 8 (9, 10, 11, 12, 13) skeins

Child: 25½ (26¾, 28¼, 30¾, 33½)" circumference at chest; sized for 2 (4, 6, 8, 10) years. Recommended ease is 2-4" it is always better to err toward a larger size for children as they will grow into a larger size.

Peerie- 3 (3, 4, 4, 5) skeins

Ultra Wool 2 (2, 2, 2, 3) skeins
