Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 13: Master Class.

The thirteenth 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, knitting technique, or designer. This latest one, Master Class, features patterns and adaptations from legendary designer Kaffe Fassett.

Fassett is known for colorful knitwear, though he also paints, designs fabric, quilts, and needlepoint patterns, among other pursuits. This booklet is a great introduction to Fassett, as well as an invitation to play with color, stripes, and stranded patterns in your own knitting.

There are patterns within for striped cushions, scarves and cowls, a shawl, and a breathtaking stranded stripe throw. Fassett also offers 20 charts and 6 stripe sequences, for customizing and creating your own unique knits from these patterns.

Each copy of Master Class comes with a bookmark that doubles as a chart key – cute and practical.

Come by the shop to pick up a copy and plan your next project!
