Many of you have seen the MDK Field Guide’s. And some of you learned of their existence when we had a party last fall for our local Designer/Friend, Jen Geigley and her designs for No. 12, Big Joy.
These compact pattern books are put out quarterly by Mason-Dixon Knitting. Each Field Guide focuses on one subject or designer. Between the covers you’ll find several patterns and some little extras, like info about the designer and their inspiration to full scale instructions on how to make the projects included. Another bonus to each MDK Field Guide is a the code on the back page. When you purchase a book, you receive a code for the Ravelry download of each pattern in that particular guide.
I plan to highlight them for you here on the blog, beginning with MDK Field Guide’s latest publication, No.14. Field Guide No.14 is called Refresh and features Irish designer Carol Feller. Carol is trained as an engineer and an artist which make her designs both structural and lovely.
You will find 4 patterns: a cardigan, short sleeved top, a hat, and a gorgeous, cabled wrap. A project for anytime. We know a sweater takes time and it’s never to early to cast one onto our needles. A hat can have a challenging pattern but still be quick, taking only a few days to complete. And shawl can be a relaxing way to slow down and enjoy the art of creating something beautiful. Whatever your need, MDK Field Guides are a wonderful option and can be easily thrown into your project bag or downloaded to any device.
Stop in the shop to pick one up. You can also call or email to find out which ones we have in stock.
