What’s that? Time for a brand-new MDK Gem?
You bet! Settle in as we spotlight a popular Field Guide pattern and give you sweet savings.
One of the great hat explosions in MDK history was the spate of Slip Stitch Caps that erupted from Thea Colman’s Field Guide No. 8: Merry Making.
Hundreds and hundreds turned up on Ravelry.
I personally made a pile of them.
This hat is so simple to make, yet it looks satisfyingly fancy. In other words, it is a prime hat to give somebody for the holidays.
The other thing about this pattern is the yarn. Karida Collins’s Neighborhood Fiber Co. Organic Studio Chunky is one of our favorites.
It is spun tightly, creating a smooth and vaguely ropelike yarn.
It comes in Karida’s famously saturated, hand-dyed colors. You can see them all here.
You take a skein of one color and a skein of another color, and all of a sudden you’re deep into a fun little party where the yarn is great, the pattern is clever, and you’re on the road to bringing intense head-warming joy to some fortunate noggin.
