Pattern Details

One color palette that has always fascinated me is patinas and rust. I never love metals when they’re shiny and new; rather, I prefer them a few years (or decades) down the road, when they’ve lived a little bit and developed depth and complexity—sometimes in tones startlingly different than the metal itself. My favorite of these is the patina that develops on copper. Ranging from deep emerald to vivid jade to soft cedar, there is no iteration of it that I don’t love. When Lorna’s Laces contacted me about creating a custom color, I knew immediately that I wanted to play with the possibilities of copper patina. In Bristol’s Copper, the vivid jade takes center stage, and flashes of deep emerald and true copper peek through unexpectedly. The colors all blend and meld harmoniously, and I couldn’t be happier with the results! When it came to designing a pattern for Bristol’s Copper, I wanted a sweater that was truly me. In addition, I wanted to choose a construction and stitch patterns that blended the colors of the yarn even further: brioche, slip stitch texture, right and left twists, and sideways knitting. Finally, I wanted to take advantage of the drape of the yarn, while adding some structure to keep it polished. Buckley was the result: a little preppy, a little vintage, a little modern, and all me. I hope you love it, too!
