Oh dear. The Brooklyn Tweed Wool People 3 look-book is available to view (and the patterns to buy).

So many wearable items.

I've been looking at these on Ravelry and they are just so wearable and all the detailing makes them look like they'd be out of my price range if they were ready made. Is there an option to buy the whole collection or am I right that they are individual PDFs? I'd buy it as a book if possible cause the photography is so lovely as well.
I know it's a bit illogical but I don't want to buy an individual pattern cause I know I havent got time to make anything right now, but I could just enjoy perusing a coffee table book.

They're individual patterns. I'd buy the collection as a book as well.

I particularly like the two cardigans - Breckon and Reine. Loop London sell Brooklyn Tweed yarns (but they're pricey) and for my size I think I'd need six skeins, which is about £70. Still, hubby has been telling me that I need to start spending more money on myself (hand on heart that's true - but then a lot of my t-shirts have seen much better days!). Maybe I should buy some fibre and aim for spinning enough yarn in the right weight :D

Aaah, the site won't load for me - might be busy at the moment?

The yarns are very expensive indeed, but a nice cardigan in a shop isn't cheap either, and of course you could make it in a less expensive brand.

I agree they're all beautiful. I reckon if you bought the book or all the cardi's (not fussed about the hats) you'd never need another pattern :lol: And I bought some beautiful wool when we visited Donegal Studio during our recent trip to Ireland - it would have been rude not to, and I think I may just have found a good use for it. But I've yet to find the price of the book/patterns - I suppose I'm having another dumb moment.

ETA - got it - duh!

Each pattern's sold on an individual basis at US$6.50 - available via the website (click on the photo at the back of the look-book in the schematics section), or on Ravelry:

I got in!

It's beautifully photographed and would make an excellent coffee table book. I like the cardies best, and the yarn colours are lovely.

I really like the Reine and Breckon cardigans too, especially the Reine.
