Field Guide No. 1: Stripes

Field Guide No. 1: Stripes

"Knitting field trips."

Mason-Dixon Knitting is taking us on a field trip—to earn our stripes! Their Field Guides are little books that explore the big world of knitting. This first installment is all about striping—or ‘the visual embodiment of joie de vivre.’ Allons-y!

A trio of patterns play with the way a single line of color can transform a project. Antonia Shankland’s Breton Cowl brings those famous Breton sweater stripes into a cozy loop with a cool structural edge. Play with color proportions while knitting the Squad Mitts by Ann Weaver—you’ll end up with a generous batch of gloves for your own squad. And Mary Jane Mucklestone’s Station Wagon Blanket is a wonderful callback to family road trips and picnics, inspired by the vibrant striped and plaid textiles woven on old factory looms.

Brimming with amusing stories, tips, hints—even a Magic Cake recipe that’s ‘considerably easier than pie!’—this little Field Guide packs a big punch.
