This is the best kind of gilding the lily, dear readers. MDK Field Guide No. 15: Open designer Jeanette Sloan AND Jen Arnall-Culliford collaborating on embroidery. Jeanette and Jen helping us give our knitting that … Je ne sais quoi.
The Arnall-Culliford Knitwear Confident Knitting series pairs knit-it-now patterns with video tutorials to grow your skills—this is the fabulous fourth in the series.
There’s a lot of experience, insight, and clever tips packed into each tutorial. With Jen demonstrating and narrating, any bit of intimidation you might feel about working embroidery techniques will quickly subside into the sheer joy of personalizing your knits with these simple but beautiful stitches.
