Description

Designed for Brooklyn Tweed by Véronik Avery, Aldous is a scholarly pursuit in brioche knitting. Honeycomb brioche, flanked by brioche ribbing, is the perfect vehicle for lofty Shelter. Sized for all genders, Aldous is a welcome layer of warmth against the winter chill. Worked flat in pieces and seamed, Brooklyn Tweed considers Aldous a level 4 out of 5 in difficulty and offers the pattern as a hard copy only, printed on quality cardstock with full-color images and detailed charts.
