What is an MDK Gem?

It’s the moment when we celebrate a favorite MDK pattern and yarn, and offer a special deal for a quick minute.

Today, we turn the MDK spotlight on the Leif Cowl, Dianna Walla’s kaleidoscopic stranded cowl. It makes the most of Spincycle’s amazing Dyed in the Wool yarn.

When you order any quantity of Dyed in the Wool, now through November 2, we’ll include an ebook download of MDK Field Guide No. 3: Wild Yarns, which includes the Leif Cowl pattern.

Please settle in, take a break, and enjoy a bit of dreaming with us.

Due to the fantastically unpredictable nature of Dyed in the Wool, your cowl will not look like anybody else’s in the universe. Which is why we love this yarn.

Make your Leif Cowl short or long. The short version uses one skein each of two colors; the long version calls for two skeins each of two colors.

Please keep scrolling to see our newest pairing suggestions. (These samples show colors that are out of stock at the moment.)

Five pairs we like—from the top:

Castaway and Deep Bump, Nostalgia and Wildflower, Melancholia and Mississippi Marsala, Rusted Rainbow and Pick Your Poison, Overshadow and Robin’s Egg.

To Recap

This MDK Gems offer runs through Wednesday, November 2. Order Spincycle Dyed in the Wool, and we’ll include a free ebook download of MDK Field Guide No. 3: Wild Yarns. Please note that your Field Guide download code will appear in your order confirmation email.

  • It’s so pretty!!

  • I’m drooling over here in Minneapolis!!!!! I DO NOT NEED TO BUY and more yarn, but oh I can dream!!!!!

    • Hi from a fellow Minneapolisan! What’s your favorite yarn store? Do you recommend the knitting guild? Thanks : )

  • Just here to say, because I’ve already just bought a bunch of Dream State (Dyed in the Wool’s worsted weight sister) that Robin’s Egg is SO beautiful. But now I’ve got some Deep Bump ready to knit, and that’s wonderful. Not my colors, but a few years ago I knit up Salty Dog for someone else and THAT was gorgeous too. You won’t go wrong here, is the moral, I think.

  • One of my favorite cowls. Looks good with everything.

  • Beautiful colors!
