Tweedy color blocking for fall!
10/10/2017                       #730
Our Berroco Tuscan Tweed collection is full of easy, colorful projects for autumn.
Our newest PDF collection of Fall 2017 is all about the tweed—Berroco Tuscan Tweed™, that is! This blend of wool, viscose, and mohair was introduced last fall, and it's back this season with five new shades and four new pattern PDFs! 
Any of the five new shades would work perfectly for last year's Tuscan Tweed patterns, including those in Booklet #380 Berroco Tuscan Tweed. This year's mini-collection combines the new shades with older colors in an exploration of colorblocking your knits.
First up is Esme, a long-sleeved sweater knit mostly with shade #9063 Columbine with a pop of new shade #9023 Wild Ginger at the sleeves and neckline. Knitting begins with the bottom body, working the front and back hems separately before joining to work in the round with an all-over textured stitch pattern. The sleeves are knit with the same stitch pattern, and it's carried through the raglan-sleeve shaping before the ribbed collar is knit.

Just one ball each of color #9055 Cherries and new shade #9025 Poppy are needed to work Lily, a colorful hat. One color is worked in the deep folded brim, before changing to the second color to work the slip-stitch pattern for the top of the hat. A fluffy pompom is also colorblocked, with the darker color on the bottom and the lighter color on top. 

Hazel, a knitted ruana, is worked in geometrical shapes and garter stitch to create a cozy layering piece. Four triangles of shade #9031 Oak are worked and joined by a strip of #9006 Carnations. Then the inside edges are knit in new color #9024 Aster.
For you sock knitters out there, Valentina is a pair of comfy socks worked in one ball each of #9034 Nightshade and new color #9026 Cosmos. The legs are worked flat using intarsia to create the colorblock effect; then the heels are worked in one color. Stitches for the instep are picked up with the other color, and the foot of the sock is worked in the round to the toes.
