BK Collective 2015 patterns with Jorstad Creek Yarns



The new Cedarbury cowl was rolled out to knitters at a recent event at Maker’s Mercantile in Kent, Washington, along with the new Traveler’s Creek Toe-up Sock, each in tweed. The cowl is knit in Jorstad Creek’s Tweed DK, and the sock is in a Blue-faced Leicester wool Tweed Sock. Both patterns were received well and made a splash with customers who turned out for a trunk show and presentation.

In fact I am thrilled with the pictures modeled and photographed by two talented ladies from Olympia, Washington. Amber Gizinski modeled our 2015 designs, and Christine Corrin took the amazing photographs. More patterns from this photo shoot will be introduced in 2015 as the year progresses. Some patterns are being test knit, and others are just waiting for the right moment. We will keep everyone on their toes a bit as we get them out into the knit-o-sphere when the timing is perfect!

Another great piece that was rephotographed to put into the BK Collective format is the spiral cowl made from Whidbey, the Jorstad Creek 100% merino fingering weight.


All of these great patterns can be knit in yarns from your stash if you have the correct weights – the Cedarbury Cowl includes an option for a different commercial yarn, for example. The Traveler’s Sock could be knit in a lace weight or fine sock yarn that calls for a size 0 or 1. Of course I hope you will try them in one of my hand-dyed yarns, but either way I think you will enjoy the patterns. All three are available from the BK Collective on ravelry.com.

I am also pleased to be able to introduce a new worsted weight yarn called
“Vashon”, the worsted version of “Whidbey.” It is an ultrafine superwash merino that turns out fantastic using my dye techniques. I’ve been developing the colorways for this yarn over the past year and will be able to offer a good quantity at our booth at the Madrona Fiber Festival in Tacoma starting February 12 through the 15th. I am working on knitted items to show this very soft, beautiful yarn worked up into wearable items.

Speaking of Madrona, I hope to see you there. Please stop by and see what’s new at the Jorstad Creek booth! Kerry

    1. Funny you should ask! I am working hard on the pattern. I had to “re-yarn” it because I can no longer get the original yarn. I will post here and Facebook when it is ready!

    1. Hi Angie! I am working on the second size of this pattern so that there will be a large and medium option. They are both stunning in two colorways. We’ll be having a photo shoot soon and that means the pattern will be available soon after. I hope to have kits available too. Thanks for your patience!

    1. Hi Angie. If you are referring to the poncho with the tulips on it, it is about to be test knit before release. It is the Keukenhof Capelet. If you are experienced with Fairisle perhaps you would like to test knit it? Let me know!

  1. I am passionate about fair isle! But, I have a 40/week job so my projects aren’t timely…darn…it would be fun to test knit for you but it would take too long!

  2. Hi Angie. The name is Keukemhof Capelet. It is going up on Ravelry later this week. Also a new Cowl using the same chart in an Aran weight will go up. Look for the BK Collective shop! Kerry
