Boardwalk Vest in Geilsk Tweed

Boardwalk in Geilsk Tweed

Boardwalk in Geilsk Tweed

Geilsk Tweed is perfect for Brooklyn Tweed patterns. Finally, a yarn that would suit the many lovely designs coming out of Jared Flood’s studios. I already had a particular knit in mind, the gorgeous Boardwalk by Heidi Kirrmaier, a pullover vest with a stunning mitered neckline. In shade #15, a blue/green that evokes winter seas, this sophisticated knit looks great over both a collar shirt for the office or a tee for weekend fun.

Brooklyn Tweed offers many gorgeous pattern from shawls to hats to sweaters that beg to be knit up in this single ply fingering weight yarn. The rich selection of colors means that you will find one that calls to you.
