MDK Gems: Léttlopi + a Free Field Guide!
New year, new Gem—it’s that special time of the month when we shine the MDK spotlight on a beloved Field Guide and a great yarn.
Happy Lopi, everybody! This time of year is just right for a batch of that Icelandic superstar, Léttlopi.
It’s a yarn that we love for its rustic character and beautiful colors.
Even better: This worsted weight version of Icelandic wool is one of the greatest bargains in the knitting world: six bucks a skein.
And—for this week only—when you order Léttlopi, we’ll send you a free PDF download of MDK Field Guide No. 17: Lopi, starring five designs by the enchanting Mary Jane Mucklestone.
This is the Field Guide that includes Daytripper, the cardigan that hundreds of knitters have whipped together.
The big gauge means this sweater comes together satisfyingly fast. And a great yoke along the way!
Also included in Field Guide No. 17: Lopi is the Destination Pullover, a quick knit (seriously, maybe a weekend if you’re in the mood) that had me jumping for joy.
Get your own sweater or Cardi off the ground. Join us for a Léttlopi KAL right here!
Rough Seas, Moor, Dark Grey. Golden for the pockets. (Apologies that we’re low on these colors—you’ll want to cook up your own colorway for this speedy knit.) This sweater is my constant companion.
Thought bubble: I love you, Destination Pullover.
I’m dreaming now of a one-color version with pockets as the only color change.
Hats, mittens, scarves too—you can try out Léttlopi on Mary Jane’s sweet accessories.
Destination Scarf. Knit in the round for doubled warmth.
A variation of the Destination Scarf, mashing up all the stitch motifs in the Field Guide.
Trinket Mittens. Aw! Your persimmon fetching just got a lot more snurgly.
The cuff is everything.
Jaunty Beanie. So quick, so fun.
Make it with any of the stranded motifs in the Field Guide.
You’ll have a stack of them remarkably soon. With pom poms, of course.
