Dear knitter,

Welcome to your Saturday!

We just got a super exciting January surprise! Our friends at Knit Stars are releasing our Season 3 masterclass, The Secrets of Knitting Happiness, as a freestanding, single class—for the first time ever.

For a limited time, get the class at a low introductory price by clicking our affiliate link. (MDK receives a commission on purchases through our affiliate link.)

We’ll always be grateful to Knit Stars for persuading us to step away from our keyboards and get in front of their cameras. We are delighted that our knitting secrets have helped knitters on their journey to knitting happiness. Knitting is supposed to be fun!

MDK Gems Will Keep Us Warm

A polar vortex is no problem—if you get in on our MDK Gems offer. The deal: order any quantity of Freia Super Bulky or Rowan Big Wool, and we’ll give you the free ebook download Field Guide No. 12: Big Joy, with big-hearted designs by Jen Geigley. Quantities are limited, so get on it, and get warm!

Want to sweeten the deal? It’s easy—subscribe to the MDK Field Guides for 2024. Subscribers can use their monthly subscriber coupon code to save 10%. Subscribers never pay full price at MDK!

Meanwhile . . .

We had a big time on MDK this week.

To knit more comfortably, ergonomics expert Carson Demers invites us to spend some time playing.

Do you have a word of the year? Max Daniels reflects on the words of 2023 and 2024, and the comments are bursting with more great words.

We bid a hearty welcome back to Jen Arnall-Culliford, who scouted out four fun mitten patterns that are delightful when the weather outside is frightful.

Kay keeps learning this lesson—it’s magic, in fact.

Sometimes “Knit to This” is more of a vibe than a suggestion. Feel free to just watch this stunningly beautiful movie.

As ever, we thank you all for supporting MDK through thick and thin. Every morning, we bring the best writers, teachers, and knitting to you, for free. This is only possible because of your purchases from the MDK Shop—thank you!

Questions? Email us anytime at, and you’ll get a prompt personal response from a real live MDK person.

Stay healthy, take care of each other, and knit on.

Ann and Kay

Just Released!

Have you seen the latest independent design featuring MDK Atlas? It’s a beauty!

Atlas Cove by Megan Gonzalez is a sassy tunic-length pullover. Strategic splashes of slipped stitches make it fun to knit and a versatile wardrobe builder. Plus: it has pockets!

Big News on the Horizon

Have you heard our big news? We’ve revealed the designer for the next MDK Field Guide, our 26th! Quick—go find out who it is! We’re thrilled with knitters’ response to our happy announcement—there is a lot of knitterly love for all things Icelandic.

So many benefits, including 10% savings on every MDK full-price item—and MDK events and workshops—all year long. And you’ll have our deep gratitude for supporting everything that MDK does.

January Gems

Our toastiest, roastiest special offer. It’s a double header, too. Here’s the deal:

We’ve got two bulky yarns for you—when you order any quantity of either one, we’ll give you the free ebook download of Jen Geigley’s big-hearted designs in Field Guide No. 12: Big Joy. Nothing like a size 13 needle to move things along.

Option No. 1: Freia Super Bulky

We’ve got a very limited quantity of Tina Whitmore’s most exuberant yarn of them all: Freia Super Bulky. It’s gigantic, absolutely bonkers in scale, which means you can crank Jen Geigley’s Brambleberry Cowl in very short order using four skeins of this delicious yarn.

Option No. 2: Rowan Big Wool

Maybe you’re in the mood for a solid. Maybe we’ve got 18 ideas for you: Rowan Big Wool in 18 colors. Four balls gets you a Brambleberry Cowl snipsnap just like that.

Your Journal, Your Way

At the start of a new year—or anytime, really—we recommend the online course that made keeping a journal a joyful mainstay of our lives: Felicity Ford’s self-paced bullet journaling course. Use MDK’s affiliate link and this code: MODERNDAILYKNITSONIK—to enroll for 10 percent off! (Thanks, Felix!)
Need a journal? As promised, we’ve got new colors of the Felix-approved bullet journal, the mighty Leuchtturm 1917, right here.

Did you miss our Zoom with Felix this week? Fear not: here’s the recording. To get the most out of it, bring a sheet of paper, a writing implement, and extras to add to your fun: stickers, colored pencils, rubber stamps, tape. Heck, get out the watercolors—whatever gets you excited.

Favorite Tools

Our tools are on point! Refined essentials that are functional and pretty at the same time—tested and approved by all of us here at MDK.

We Get Letters

“Thank you for each post, each pattern, each how-to, each what to watch, recipe, explanation why things get wonky and where to travel and let’s not even forget about the gnome sensation you have kickstarted! MDK enhances my daily life.”

“How wonderful it is that you give us subscribers both the gorgeous hard copy + digital versions without an extra expense (plus the 10% off purchases)!

I have all the FGs loaded onto my iPad for traveling or a quick lookup. But nothing beats getting to read the hard copy. Perfect size, amazing content, gorgeous photography, excellent design/print quality.”


  • I would love to subscribe. I live in Australia and it would be my way of supporting the work that you do. Have you found a way yet to enable us to participate in your wonderful booklets?
    Thanks for all of the amazing people I get to meet and talk to through your diligence and curiosity. I love Felix’s ‘Dandelion’ shawl, it sits up there with Monet’s garden for me. Thank you.
