Warm winter greetings from the BT Design Team! It’s the coldest time of year in the Northern hemisphere – the time that most of us are communing with our knitting on the deepest level. This season always gets me daydreaming about classic knitwear: toasty wool sweaters, slouchy cardigans, traditional colorwork, lush scarves and wraps, meaty cable stitches. As knitters, we like to romanticize winter - and why not? Is there a better way to endure the darkest months of the year than with our beloved, age-old craft? The four of us on the BT design team had a blast putting this collection together. Late last summer, my assignment to brainstorm a group of classic, mid-winter knits unleashed a rash of creativity. In our very first concept meeting, we had an over-abundance of ideas and enthusiasm about this work. The most difficult part, no doubt, was narrowing them down to the 18 pieces you’ll see here in our look book! We’ve organized our work into three distinctive stories: modern takes on traditional colorwork, tonal loungewear, and classic, textured knits perfect for winter wardrobes. We hope you’ll find something that suits your personal style and stretches you to take your knitting to the next level. Our photoshoot took place during the first, chilly days of 2013. We traveled north to beautiful Hudson, New York – a jewel of a town, located 130 miles north of NYC – and couldn’t have asked for a better wintry setting. Its eclectic mix of architecture and people was an inspiration to our production team, and the freshly fallen snow was quite literally the icing on the cake. Now, pull up a chair and enjoy our celebratory homage to winter! All my very best,

Jared Flood
