Announcing Woolens, Jared’s first printed book and single-designer collection since Made In Brooklyn seven years ago! Most knitters cut their teeth on simple accessories like scarves and hats. And for most of us there’s comfort and satisfaction in returning to such projects even after we’ve expanded our skills to become garment knitters. Maybe we need something finite to whip up for a friend’s birthday, or maybe we just want an uncomplicated palate cleanser after a strenuous cabled coat or a colorwork sweater. In homage to soothing, approachable knits, Jared decided to design a whole collection of accessories in his thoughtful, timeless style.

The eleven cowls, scarves, wraps and hats in Woolens introduce a variety of techniques and invite exploration of various design options, prompting choices that personalize the garments. Created with masculine and feminine wardrobes in mind, these pieces meld classic good looks and engaging knitting. Many are simple enough for the adventurous beginner; if you’re ready to expand your skill set, try a hat designed as the gentlest possible introduction to stranded colorwork. When you’re ready for another level of challenge, knit a striking bi-color shawl that’s worked in the round and opened with a steek. With a clear and thorough reference section that’s a valuable resource in itself, Woolens will teach you all the new techniques you need to knit these beautiful accessories.

Throughout this 138-page book, Jared’s gorgeous photographs reveal every detail of the designs as well as glimpses of his creative process and inspiration from the natural beauty of Japan. We hope you’ll soak up of plenty of inspiration for your next project — accessories make great gifts, after all — and enjoy the tactile experience of a BT collection on paper!

Woolens is available as a printed book or as a print + e-book combo and can be purchased right here on our website or from Brooklyn Tweed stockists around the world. As a special treat, the first 250 copies of the book sold online will be signed by the author. We hope you enjoy this inspiring new publication!

  1. Congrats on this latest accomplishment! Each time I look at the Brooklyn Tweed site, it’s with envy. How I wish I could knit! We miss you both awfully and hope that you make the trek to the East Coast sometime soon.

    Living vicariously,

  2. unable to purchase the Woolens book on line, keeps prompting me to log-in and have done so numerous times.

  3. When I was a little girl, I used to watch my grandma crochet. And I asked her one day, Grandma, “Do you know how to knit? and she said, “Two needles, Oh, know, I could never do that.” When I grew up and taught myself to knit (I already knew how to crochet, thanks to my Grandma), I happened upon a lady I knew in a yarn store. . . I asked, “Oh, do you know how to crochet? She flapped her hands and said, “Oh, know, one needle, I could never do that.!!!”

    I just know you can do anything if you want to. And these patterns make me want to!!!

  4. My favourite knits, I just wish it was colder and for much longer here in Australia….just so I could wear your beautiful knits.

  5. The snippet of your book looks fabulous. Can’t wait to see a copy and try some of these amazing designs.

  6. I really like the idea of returning to simpler skills after attempting a more complex, challenging piece of knitting. This, as a print book, is now on my Christmas list.

  7. Hello Lynne, Thank you for leaving a comment. I have emailed you directly to assist you with this. All the best, Christina | BT Customer Service

  8. Bravo and well done! The book looks wonderful, and is on my holiday wish list.

    The spelling of Woolens rocks…and Woollens is fine too…depends on which part of the world you might’ve learned English.

  9. Hello, At this time the e-book is only available with book purchases on our website. If you have any additional questions about this, please feel free to contact us at info@brooklyntweed.com. All the best, Christina | BT Customer Service

  10. I first found BT years ago at your blogspot and so enjoyed your work and photography. As your passion grew, skill and vision, you had to move on and I was sad to see you go. But I understood and where you are now is mind-boggling. I have always had a wonderful passion for textiles. I like knitting very much and pursued it many years ago. I gave up after taking a class at a knitting shop. The whole class and instructor were righthanded and I’ m a leftie. I did manage to complete a sweater and scarf but was totally frustrated and did no pursue any further. Over the years I did pick it back up occasionally. When I found your blog it was simply satisfying. I still enjoy the emphasis you place on pure yarns but also miss the photography of your earlier days. By the way, I lived in Wisconsin back then. Perfect right.
