Amy’s Thread: Elizabeth Smith, Designer to Watch

Elizabeth Smith designs under her line, The Brown Stitch. Recently, she has recently come out with a series of beautifully simple patterns in Berroco yarns that are not only photographed beautifully, her styling is spot on.

The first time Elizabeth’s work caught my eye was in 2009 with the pattern Mud Season (which was knit in Berroco’s discontinued yarn Cuzco – you could substitute Ultra Alpaca Chunky to make this now). She has done a lot of beautiful work since then. Elizabeth has several other pieces designed for Berroco yarns. Here are a few of my recent favorites:


Bosco is an oversized, loose, boxy pullover, knit seamlessly using Berroco Vintage Chunky. I think it looks like the sweater to live in for the next 6 months.

I would wear it with Gulf of Maine, Elizabeth’s cozy, garter stitch cowl that is knit with 3 shades of Berroco Artisan (my 3 favorite shades).
