We are big believers that there is a knitting project for every mood. We always—always—have a simple project on the needles, for those times when we want to knit without a care.

The Blanket of Joy is exactly that kind of knitting. Kay cooked up the basic recipe for this striped throw at a time when none of the projects on her needles qualified as “Zoom meeting knitting.”

The Blanket of Joy is relaxation knitting at its finest. Panels of stockinette and reverse stockinette switch back and forth in an intuitive, undulating rhythm that soothes the soul. There is no picking up of stitches for edgings, because neat garter-stitch borders are knitted in as you go. When you bind off, you have a blanket!


Easy can also be exciting! Striping your way through all 22 shades of MDK’s very own yarn, Atlas, is an ever-changing delight. You can’t wait to get to the next color. With each stripe, the visual composition changes, and comes into focus.

The Blanket of Joy is a wonderful way to get to know a Atlas yarn that we hope will become a friend for life. We’re enormously proud of MDK’s first yarn. Atlas is a light worsted-weight, 100% Rambouillet wool yarn that is grown, spun, and dyed in the United States. Read all about it here.

But wait there’s more! A joyful project needs a tidy container, for storage and portable knitting. Every Blanket of Joy Kit includes a sturdy nylon Baggu bag celebrating Atlas.
