Romney Kerchief | Pattern Review

Earlier this summer, I made The Romney Kerchief by Jared Flood at Brooklyn Tweed. It is a great pattern and was very enjoyable to knit. The size is really good. Usually, by the end of a project, I am sick of it. However, I wasn't with this one. 

I used the recommended yarn, Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in Sweatshirt, which worked really well. I love the color of this yarn. It's the best grey of all the greys. I used Brooklyn Tweed in another project; I thought it was stiff and itchy. This is a loosely knit pattern, so the stiff yarn worked well. It seemed much softer and the drape much better. 

Once I finished, I wasn't sure how I was going to wear it. I didn't think about it before or while I was knitting, but when I finished I thought, "Hmm, this is going to be awkward to wear." However, it's not. Look how cute it looks on my adorable sister! It looks super cute tied, and because the yarn isn't too soft, it stays put. It is lightweight, so it doesn't feel bulky. I will get a lot of use out of it this fall.

I want to make this again. It was fast to knit up and fun so it's a good contender for gifts. I recommend this pattern.
