Modern Daily Knitting Field Guide No. 16 Painterly
For every knitter who loves playing with colour, Kaffe's designs are extraordinarily fun. MDK Field Guide No 13 Master Class was a crowd favourite, and we have a feeling you're going to be just as inspired by this latest offering, which is all about intarsia. If you are only used to working stranded colourwork, we think you'll find simple intarsia a revelation.
These rhythmic, geometric designs are the perfect starting place for knitters new to the technique. This Field Guide includes lots of tips and tricks for knitting intarsia, as well as complete charts and clear instructions.
Field Guide No. 16: Painterly includes patterns for a show-stopping throw, cushions to enliven any couch, scarf homages to village and city life and a jaw dropping cowl. All a riot of colour that will brighten any grey day.
We have a selection of video tutorials to accompany these patterns and they can be found on our YouTube Channel: Little Lessons Intarsia

Not got any Felted Tweed in stash? We think it'd be fun to dip into the Jamieson and Smith 2ply Jumper Weight rainbow, you'll just need to hold it double. We estimate you'll need approximately three balls of 2ply Jumper Weight for every ball of Felted Tweed.
