Established in 1910 and situated on fifty-two acres in the heart of Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is one of the most magical, breathtaking spaces in the city. With rolling landscapes and rare flora and fauna housed in charming art nouveau greenhouses, the garden is an escape from the big city, while also very “New York.”

The Brooklyn Botanic beanie allows you to take that charming combination of nature and nouveau with you everywhere you go! The eyelet ribbing, inspired by the greenhouse architecture, supports a beautiful floral lace pattern that is suggestive of the rich (almost overwhelming, but not quite) plant life of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden!

I Knit New York
Print copies available from One More Row Press

The Big Apple. The City That Never Sleeps. The Empire City. I Knit New York contains ten knitting patterns inspired by the history and geography of the Capital of the World. We asked five of our favorite New Yorkers to design patterns and share their favorite New York secrets from subway to skyscraper.

Want to know where to find the New York that the locals know and love? IKNY shares shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, museums, and more. And if you can’t make it to the City, we include lists of our favorite books, movies, TV shows, and songs, so you can bring NYC home.

Designers include Brittney Bailey (b.woolens/Purl Soho), Kathleen Dames (kathleen dames knitwear design), Kirsten Kapur (Through the Loops), Xandy Peters (creator of Fox Paws and other stacked stitches), and Lars Rains (Modern Lopi), plus an essay from Kay Gardiner (the Northern half of Mason-Dixon Knitting), a #buttonhunt in the Garment District with Kathleen Dames (host of The Sweater with Kathleen Dames podcast), and a multiborough yarn crawl with Lisa Chamoff (founder of Indie Untangled).

Yarns for all patterns provided by Backyard Fiberworks. Alice O’Reilly, the dyer behind Backyard Fiberworks, contributes an essay on color theory plus a guide to the various yarns used in I Knit New York.
