Field Guide No. 12: Big Joy
Go big! MDK Field Guide No. 12 celebrates the big joy of simple projects to make for those you love—and to give away. Five clever designs by Jen Geigley chunky yarn for quick results and the chance to make a bunch of colorful, gorgeous gifts.
We love Jen Geigley’s modern, whimsical point of view—the five designs in MDK Field Guide No. 12: Big Joy play with scale, texture, and color in such a joyful way.
Brambleberry Cowl: A rich texture to wrap around your neck. A superchunky snuggle, basically.
Main Squeeze Cardigan: A cozy cocoon—this sweater knits up in a snap. The mix of texture, proportion, and basic technique makes this project fun as a knitter’s first sweater. No buttons! No buttonholes! Aiming for ease here.
Stripey Scrappy Hats: We are big believers in getting a groove on and making a batch of gifts. The more of these you make, the more inventive your color combinations will become.
Rubble Hats: Stranded fun and a cute shape combine for a modern, witty design. A hat that brings a smile.
Bobble Throw: The secret to this throw is that the color bobbles are added after knitting the blanket. This allows plenty of fun in playing with color and design–how many bobbles? Which colors?
