The end is near! So many Main Squeeze sweaters are on the cusp of greatness!
As everybody approaches the finish line, we are hearing questions from folks who are wondering about things: How do I join the sleeve pieces to the body? How do I work the raglan decreases? Pick up stitches? Add pockets?
Great news! We have videos.
Jen Geigley, designer of all of the quick-to-make, joyful knitwear in MDK Field Guide No. 12: Big Joy, has made super-helpful short videos to guide us.
Jen’s background in graphic design is on full display in these clean and friendly mini-tutorials. They’re fun to watch.
You’ll feel like you’re sitting at Jen’s sunny table in Iowa, looking over her shoulder as she shares her tips.
Jen guides us through every action moment of constructing this coziest of cardigans. Even if you already know how to do some or all of these things, it’s nice to see exactly how Jen did it on the sample.
