The Design

"Adventures in colorwork."

This smart hat blends the tradition of stranded colorwork with a bold, minimalist motif. Lucerne, designed by Jared Flood of Brooklyn Tweed, uses symmetrically aligned pops of color taking inspiration from Swiss design. Perfect for knitters who are looking to delve into colorwork, the pattern is intuitive and can be worked in as few as two colors—or as many as five!

Lucerne was designed to take advantage of fingering-weight Brooklyn Tweed Peerie’s massive color palette. Knitters have the choice of forty-five deeply saturated shades!

This 15 page pattern includes:

  • Full color photography from the talented Jared Flood.
  • A clear design schematic.
  • Color-coded 2-color, 3-color, and 4-color charts, as well as a crown chart.
  • Brief instructions for Special Techniques including speed-swatching for circular knitting, color dominance, 1x1 tubular cast-on, 2x2 tubular cast-on, and wet blocking.
  • A concise abbreviations guide.
