Modern Daily Knitting Field Guide No. 2 is all about easy entry into the world of colorwork, with four projects that come together fast.
In putting together a new Field Guide, the hard part isn’t coming up with ideas. The challenge is to pare down the list. Stranded colorwork is a vast, colorful sea of beautiful things to make. Overwhelming when you first dive in. What surprised us was the way that certain motifs and colorways and shapes kept catching our eye.
The three patterns in Field Guide No. 2 are as elegant in construction as any offered, thanks to the talent of these designers. These are juicy, delicious, addicting patterns.
Véronik Avery’s Hadley Pullover is the perfect mix of fit and ease. Michèle Rose Orne’s Asterisk Hat and Dot Cowl allow you to play with color and pattern as you like, to cheerful effect. And Ann Budd’s Après-Anything Socks, worked in worsted yarn, can be made so fast that they’re a candidate for Kwik ’n’ EZ Handknit Gift of the Year.
