On this fine May morning, we are thrilled to reveal the designer who will be the star of the next MDK Field Guide.
It’s one of our favorite bits of knitting lore: how Nancy Marchant became fascinated with an intriguing stitch pattern she saw on a passer-by’s sweater in Amsterdam. Her curiosity led her to research, restore, and reinvigorate brioche stitch for modern knitters.
Now known to knitters all over the world as the queen of brioche, Nancy has explored and taught the technique for decades. Through her books and designs, Nancy has introduced both designers and knitters to the satisfying cleverness and cushy fabrics of brioche knitting.
We have admired her work for a long time, and each passing encounter with Nancy over the years made us want to know her better. So of course, when we decided it was high time the two of us learned brioche, we turned to Nancy.
Now, to our immense joy, we all will have the chance to knit and explore with Nancy in Field Guide No. 21, launching June 3.
