Isabell Kraemer’s latest design looks like so much fun, a slip stitch shawl in six shades of Brooklyn Tweed Loft!
As soon as I saw “SSP (slip stitch party) shawl,” I went straight for our Loft display, intrigued by the play of low and high contrast combinations in Kraemer’s design.
Brooklyn Tweed Loft:
- fingering weight
- woolen spun
- 100% Targhee-Columbia wool
- 275 yards/50 g
- $16.75 each; 7 skeins needed for “SSP (slip stitch party) shawl,” for total cost of $117.25
Here are a few more possibilities, though with 35+ shades in stock, this is just the tip of the iceberg!
We recently ordered a big bundle of Loft, anticipating upcoming shortages due to the permanent closure of the Philadelphia dyehouse Brooklyn Tweed has been working with since 2010. Unfortunately, this means that our most recent shipment of Loft may be our last of 2022. BT is working hard to find a new way to produce their beloved woolen spun yarns, but in the meantime, we’re well stocked in Loft and Shelter!
Come by the shop to plan a “SSP (slip stitch party) shawl” of your own, or order online for local pickup or shipping if one of these colorways is right up your alley.

What DK can you use for this shawl ?

DK weight yarn will make a heavier fabric and a cozy shawl – I think it would be lovely in either Brooklyn Tweed Arbor or Dapple! Let us know if you want to see some color combinations…
