Finally Fall: Lauren's Remarkable Ronan

It's finally Fall! The weather may not be cooperating yet but it's no excuse not to have the hand-knits on standby. I have a loving history with Brooklyn Tweed patterns and Andrea Mowry. When Wool People Vol. 11 was released and I realized they had teamed up I knew I had to get to work. 

Lauren's Ronan Cardigan

Pattern: Ronan Cardigan by Andrea Mowry from Wool People Vol. 11
Size Made: 42½ "
Materials: 12 Skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in Wool Socks, Size 7 & 9 Circular Needles
Modifications: None

Ronan Cardigan Pockets

My favorite thing about this cardigan is the pockets. If you put pockets on anything, there's a 100% chance I'll want to make it. I was pleased to see that method for these was super simple. All you have to do is stitch them down when they're finished and you're set!

When I first saw this cardigan I assumed the ribbing around the collar and pockets was a simple knit 1 purl 1 pattern but it's actually brioche! This gives the whole collar a squishy, cozy feel that is perfect for cooler days. It may take a little longer to complete but the result is definitely worth it.

I had never considered the Shelter yarn as a candidate for brioche knitting but I really love the way it works up. The structure of the yarn gives a lot of definition to the stitch pattern. It makes me want to brioche all types of wool!

The Ronan cardigan would be a great pattern for someone with knitting experience who's looking to learn a couple new tricks. If you're familiar with brioche stitch it'll be a breeze. It may seem silly to knit a cardigan during the 90-degree weather we've had in Denver this summer but now I have the perfect garment in time for Fall!
