MDK Field Guide No. 2 is all about easy entry into the world of colorwork, with four projects that come together fast. This Field Guide sets you up for success with four projects that allow brilliant color play and a bit of skill sharpening along the way.

Stranded colorwork is a vast, colorful sea of beautiful things to make. Overwhelming when you first dive in. This Field Guide provides you with a mix of patterns that make it possible to play with stranded colorwork at whatever level you’d like to try.

Easy. Easier. Easiest.

A colorful yoke.

A modern Fair Isle pattern.

Socks with something happening.


The three patterns in Field Guide No. 2 are as elegant in construction as any we have 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 perfect for holiday gift giving.
