Modern Daily Knitting Field Guide No. 15: Open.

The fifteenth installment of the Modern Daily Knitting Field Guide series is here! Let’s take a peek inside.

Yes, Ann Shayne and Kaye Gardiner are now Modern Daily Knitting, a welcome name change that they wrote about on their blog. MDK’s series of Field Guides are pocket-sized booklets focused on a particular theme, knitting technique, or designer. This latest one, Open, features five patterns from designer Jeanette Sloan.

Open in this case refers to openwork, the eyelets and negative spaces of lace knitting. Sloan’s designs for Field Guide No. 15 are an invitation to lace knitting for knitters of all levels, building on skills from one pattern to the next.

MDK Field Guides are $14.95 each; order online for local pickup or shipping, and let us know if we can recommend a yarn for any of these patterns – happy to make suggestions and send photos of what we have available!
