Knitting is the original go-at-your-own-pace activity. We each pick up our knitting and put down our knitting as life permits. Sometimes we blaze straight on through a project, and other times we put a sweater down with just the neckband left to knit, and don’t come back to it for forty-eleven weeks or longer.

When you pick up a piece of knitting that you’ve sidelined, even for a few days, it can be challenging to re-orient. What size are you knitting? Wasn’t there a video telling you how to pick up for the i-cord and make the clever buttonholes-that-are-not-buttonholes on the Trellis Top? Where did that thing get to?

We are here to help. This post contains links to every one of the short, helpful videos that Carol Feller has made to support her designs in MDK Field Guide No. 14: RefreshAll the links will live here, in this post, shining perpetual light on knitters in search of a tidy saddle shoulder or magical i-cord buttonhole. If we end up doing any additional tutorials for these projects, we’ll add them here, to our one-stop Carol Feller education center.

The Videos

Arcade Cap

Here’s Carol’s video on how to work the decreases that form the top of the arches.

Want to chat about the Arcade Cap? There’s a topic for it in the MDK Lounge.

Twining Wrap

Here’s an overview of how this ingenious wrap is constructed, starting with just a few stitches and building into a symphony of cables.

For chat about the Twining Wrap, here’s the MDK Lounge topic.

Trellis Top 

For this snappy topper (which is not a tabard, a poncho, or a tabardo, thank you very much), the finishing is big fun. Carol’s got two videos: picking up stitches and i-cord and i-cord corners and buttonholes.

You can find a friendly group of tabard-deniers over in the Trellis Top conversation in the Lounge.

Transom Cardigan

This ultra-wearable cardigan is a master class on saddle shoulder construction. Carol made three videos: a construction overview, followed by tutorials on picking up stitches for the saddles and finally, working the short-row sleeve caps.

Over in the Lounge, you can meet with others who are knitting the Transom Cardigan.
