Field Guide #18 Beginnings
With MDK Field Guide No. 18: Beginnings, we celebrate the idea of a new start, that joy that comes when trying something for the first time.
These projects require nothing more than knit, purl, decrease, increase, and yarnover. There’s a simple cable in there, too, and that’s as fancy as it gets. But look at what amazing effects can come from these most basic of stitches.
Knitting is forever new—each project has its own moment when we decide we’re going to jump in. Have a look at these six ideas—there’s endless fun to be had here.
The Designer: Karida Collins is a star in the fiber world, where she is an innovator as both a designer and a dyer.
This was the idea that Karida ran with for Field Guide No. 18. It’s a challenge to create knits that are simple but sophisticated, and Karida met that challenge. We will be knitting and wearing her creations for a very long time.
