Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 14 Refresh

  • £15.00


It’s as simple as the cool side of a pillow, a window opened, those favourite sandals fished out of the closet. As the days grow longer, we crave the new. We’re wiggling our toes and marvelling that we get to be warm again. As nature releases its spectacular colour, we want to create something brand new, too.

Carol Feller's designs in this lovely collection feature beautiful textures. Her eye for the structural and clever constructions is evident in each design. There is the fabulous cabled Transom Cardigan – set to become a wardrobe staple; the Arcade Cap is a great taster project for Nua yarn, using just 1 or 2 skeins; the sinuous cables of the Twining Wrap are show-stopping; and the Trellis Top has a clever construction with buttons up the sides.

Each design in the collection uses Stolen Stitches Nua – a glorious blend of merino, yak and linen fibres. It creates drapey fabrics that look incredible with textures. See below for yarn requirements for each of the patterns.
