Serendipity Tweed is a blend of 60% cotton and 40 % wool. Structured as a cabled tweed yarn, three of its strands are cotton and one, usually the softer color, is wool. The yarn has the softness of cotton and the resiliency of wool.
Serendipity Tweed is fairly new to the Brown Sheep line and makes wonderful garments for children or adults, as well as lighter weight hats, mittens, and socks.

Suggested pattern: Element, A Basic Knitted Wrap — uses two skeins of Serendipity Tweed. The model pictured uses color ST84, Nebraska Wheat.
Element is a stretch of knitting that is easy and simple. The design uses a single strand to create a rib and ladder fabric that is drapey and soft. Open ladders form a clever changeable buttonhole edge.
You can dive into your button collection and complete the wrap with one stunning button (or use a favorite brooch) and this versatile little wrap will drape over your shoulders with style. Wear it with a tank top and jeans for a jaunt to the ice cream store or think of this as a “dressed up and out to dinner” handknit garment. Pattern: Element, A Basic Knitted Wrap
