Field Guide 12 - Big Joy: This is a little book chock full of love. And great big knits that come together fast. All the designs in MDK Field Guide No. 12 call for Rowan Big Wool, the fluffiest, softest merino imaginable. These designs all use size 11 or 13 needles (8mm or 9mm), so that’s a clue to how quickly these projects will knit up.
Field Guide 13 - Masterclass: MDK is thrilled to share designs by the master of color, Kaffe Fassett. If you don’t know Kaffe’s work, this Field Guide will bring a blast of color and a spirit of adventure to your knitting. We believe, based on our own experience, that you are about to fall in love. All the designs call for Rowan Felted Tweed, the light and subtle classic beloved by knitters—including Kaffe Fassett, who has been consulting with Rowan since 1980, and has designed scores of patterns in Felted Tweed
Field Guide 16 - Painterly: Early reviews from knitters who have already started these projects? “Lifesaving.” “Euphoria inducing.” “Wildly addicting.” “I thought intarsia was hard. It is not hard.” “So easy! Makes me look so brilliant.” “Great for Zoom call knitting.”
Last fall, knitters got lost in the beautiful world of Field Guide No. 13: Master Class. It has been one of Modern Daily Knitting's most beloved Field Guides—an exploration of stripes, as interpreted by the brilliant colorist and artist Kaffe Fassett.
Kaffe Fassett to the rescue! Just when we need him most, the beloved master of color and pattern gives us a new collection of 5 designs to dazzle and amuse us. These rhythmic, geometric designs are the perfect starting place for knitters who are new to the technique.
Kites Throw: The longer you gaze at it, the more subtleties you discover. The Kites Throw is a stunning project—simple triangles that tumble and turn for a dazzling effect. It comes together quickly because the triangles are large and rhythmic to knit.
Cushions: The perfect canvas for trying out Kaffe’s geometric patterns. Complete knitting and finishing instructions included. The color play is endless with these cushions. No sofa will be the same once it has a batch of these brightening it up.
Watercolor Cowl: A simple rectangle of vibrant color becomes a cowl with one short seam.
Village Scarf: Absolutely glorious. Kaffe pares cottages down to elemental geometry, and the result is a village we’d all like to live in.
Cityscape Scarf: Squares combine to form a gorgeous abstract skyline. The large blocks of color make this a perfect starting point for working intarsia.
