Field Guide 19 - Marls: The beloved author and designer Cecelia Campochiaro has the gift of seeing knitting at its most elemental, exploring knitted fabrics at stitch level, from the ground up. Cecelia first introduced us to her groundbreaking concept of sequence knitting, and we’ve been knitting sequence projects ever since. Now, she’s showing us another irresistible sort of knitting.
Marling is the effect we get when we combine strands of different fiber, weight, or color.
This Field Guide is a tantalizing tasting menu of different types of marling. The effects are amazing, and amazingly intuitive to create. The fabrics are a sensory joy to knit, and they are beautiful to wear. Five artful designs introduce us to the concept of marling and set us on a glorious exploration of texture and colour.
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.
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 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.
