Field Guide No. 1: Stripes
MDK Field Guide No. 1 is all about the stripes: a trio of patterns that play with the way a single line of color can transform a project.
Mary Jane Mucklestone’s Station Wagon Blanket is a brilliantly simple stripe pattern–made in garter stitch blocks, it is perfect for travel or TV knitting.
Antonia Shankland’s Breton Cowl imagines what happens when you combine two of the softest yarns in the world in one delicious loop.
And Ann Weaver, always inventive, makes one brief and bright contrast stripe the star of the show in her Squad Mitts.
All along the way, Kay and Ann share stories, tips, and hints to make it all even more fun. Sara Remington’s photographs are at once epic and intimate, a special sort of inspiration for every knitter.
