  • Can anyone tell me if there is a pattern available for the sweater Nancy is wearing in the picture above? I know it’s not in the field guide, but is it available anywhere else? I love knitting brioche and really love that sweater. Many thanks!

    • me too! I love that sweater.

    • Me three 🙂

  • Love everything Nancy Marchant. ❤️

  • So, how much Atlas would one need to make the cowl (short or long)? I’m ready to shop, but the pattern info doesn’t provide any details.

    • Hi Kim! The short cowl uses 2 skeins of Atlas, 1 skein each of 2 colors. The long cowl uses 4 skeins, 2 each of two colors.

      • Thanks, Ann. Off to start browsing color combos!

  • So sorry to miss the Zoom call today! Will the recording be posted later?

    • Yes!

  • HOORAY!!! Another gorgeous Field Guide!

  • Honestly, how do you keep the momentum?? Your Field Guides are proof positive of the abundance mentality!!! MDK reminds me of those old tv commercials: “but wait, don’t order yet, there’s more”. So much to delight in. Thanks again and again and again!!!!

    • Thank you, Jan! You’re the best. All glory to the MDK team who are stalwartly scheming and dreaming, so fun to work with them.

  • I might do the scarf but make it larger into a shawl size. I am in FL and I would wear a wrap more than a scarf. Just more excuse to buy more yarn 🙂

    • I completely approve this message! I think a double-wide (as we call anything we make twice as big as the original) would be a gorgeous thing. It would be about 29″ (74cm) wide rather than the specified 14.5″ (37cm).

      The colors would land in a different way with a wider width, which would be fun to watch. Now you’ve got ME dreaming . . . ; )

      • I think was would be cool is to pull from the center and then pull from the outside on the next ball when you run out, pull from the outside so they flow?

        • That’s what I was thinking; Point Reyes, here I come….

      • need like 4 big balls?

  • Ooo, that scarf with the minikins! And like Carol said, biggened into a wrap size. I’m such a sucker for Freia…

  • Is anyone else having trouble trying to order this yummy stuff? I have tried again and again to order a Honeycomb shawl bundle and the order won’t go through. 🙁

    • Yes all day yesterday, the Exp date of card section was messed up on the check out process. I tried calling the Shop to no avail as the number I finally found after much searching on Google “has been placed out of service”. I wanted a bundle of Field Guides I’ve been saving for but that didn’t happen. I’ll try again today and let ya know if I am successful.

  • These are all beautiful.

  • I feel as though I’m whining out in the wilderness here but … is this edition available from anywhere in the UK? I would hate to break my lucky streak of owning them all. Thank you!

    • Hi there! We do ship to the UK, so you can always order the regular old way if you like! Also, Fine Fettle Fibres in Morpeth carries the Field Guides as well. Clicky clicky to get there.

      • Thanks, DG! Order done and dusted. Now just waiting to ambush the postman!

  • Does this field guide actually teach you brioche? Or just have pattern instructions? And you have to learn the techniques elsewhere? And do you ship to New Zealand yet? Or will I need to buy a digital copy on Ravelry?

  • Am I missing something? I’m on Ravelry and see that other than needle size (US 6/4 mm) there’s no indication in any of the patterns whether to use circular or straight needles and what length. I’m considering making the cowl and was hoping to get all my materials all at once on MDK.
