Home and Away Knit-A-Long: Moto Jacket
July 1st–July 30th, 2017
May 30th-June 15th: Order the yarn, needles and a copy of the book now through June 15th. Everything will arrive in the store (or straight to your doorstep!) with plenty of time for you to cast on by July 1st. When you’re done, we’ll expect to see finished shots of you and your sweater! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or post on our Facebook page.
Help every Thursday: We’ll be devoting our Thursday evening Open Knitting to the Moto Jacket KAL July 1st–July 30th–we’ll be here to help you if you get in a rut or need help navigating the pattern, but primarily it’ll be a chance for us to motivate each other.
15% Discount: the book, the needles AND the yarn. We’ll be knitting ours with Brooklyn Tweed Arbor, a DK-weight wool yarn that’s 100% grown, spun and dyed in the USA.
Prizes: Every single participant who completes their sweater will receive a Halus Hat kit pictured below (the pattern and one skein of the Brooklyn Tweed Quarry)–a $25 value. AND every single participant who completes their sweater will be entered in a drawing to win a $50 gift certificate to Wool & Honey, to use in-house or online.

The Moto Jacket has ultimate versatility. It can be worn three different ways: swingy and open, partially buttoned with a wide collar, or buttoned up completely with a sculptural collar.
The pictured sweater was knitted seamless from the top down. If you prefer seamed knits, a second set of instructions is included to knit the cardigan in pieces.
If you are in-between sizes, we suggest sizing up for this one. When choosing your size, it’s always a good idea to check your actual body measurements against all the measurements given in the pattern schematic.

Purebred Targhee sheep from Montana and South Dakota lend us their distinctive fleece, a finewool with the softness of merino enhanced by longwool genetics for added durability. Arbor represents an exciting expansion for Brooklyn Tweed: working with new American partners, we’ve developed a DK-weight workhorse yarn, spun worsted for superior strength and stitch definition and dyed in a nuanced palette of 30 solid colors.
