What is an MDK Gem, you ask?
It’s that special moment when we shine the MDK sunbeam on a favorite Field Guide design and yarn, and offer you a quick special deal.
This month we come to you with a shivery feeling of excitement, because this is one of our favorite collaborations ever.
Jeanette Sloan + Aimée Gille = The Mood Cardigan. [Trumpets! Cherubs dangling, bluebirds flapping!]
What’s the Gem?
When you order any quantity of La Bien Aimée Helix, now through Wednesday, March 22, we will include the free ebook PDF download edition of Field Guide No. 15: Open, starring Jeanette’s Mood Cardigan and four more modern lace designs.
A Perfect Pairing
Aimée Gille and Jeanette Sloan joined forces to create something very beautiful for Field Guide No. 15: Open.
The design: Jeanette’s topsy-turvy cocoon that you can wear two ways, upside down or right side up.
The structure is so clever: two rectangles with edgings added.
The stitch pattern is one of Jeanette’s signature modern lace patterns, airy and simple to work.
The mitered edging is one of those feats of clever engineering.
And the yarn! This is Helix, one of La Bien Aimée’s exquisite, very special creations. Helix is lace weight, custom milled at Aimée’s instruction, a blend of Gotland and Falklands Merino wool. The gray Gotland wool adds a truly delicious depth to the La Bien Aimée color palette. Wonderful stuff, not easy to find.
See the colors here—and remember that marling is an option because the yarn is held double throughout.
You’ll need four skeins, five for the largest size.
