Description

The diving bell shape of Collomia is the perfect set-up for a beautiful colorwork yoke. Designed by Gudrun Johnston for Brooklyn Tweed and knit in woolen-spun Shelter, Collomia’s front and back are worked flat in pieces then joined to create the circular yoke, which is knit from the bottom up using German short rows to create shape. Brooklyn Tweed considers this pattern a level 4 out of 5 in difficulty and offers it as a hard copy only. For more information about materials, gauge, and size, please click Product Details, above.
