The fifth installment of the Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide series is here! Let’s take a peek inside.
Ann Shayne and Kaye Gardiner’s series of Field Guides are pocket-sized booklets focused on a particular theme or knitting technique. The theme here is sequences, drawing on the inspired work of designer Cecelia Campochiaro.
Like the Field Guides before it, this volume is an introduction to the idea of sequence knitting, a few patterns to play with the technique, and some of Ann and Kaye’s trademark wit along the way.
Anne was taken with this Field Guide, and in fact has already whipped up a “Swirl Hat” for her son-in-law using Brooklyn Tweed Arbor – a slightly larger gauge than suggested, to accommodate his slightly larger head.
She was able to hand-deliver this gift on her family trip to New York over Thanksgiving, along with a family’s-worth of other hats that will be shared on a future blog post!
Look for the Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 5 on our teacart, with the latest books and magazines. We still have a couple of copies of No. 4, too, in case you’re tempted to participate in Fringe Association’s log cabin make-along in the new year. See you at the shop!
