Maybe you’re looking at the calendar and you’re thinking, 2018 looks like a great time to learn some new awesome knitting techniques.
Yes! you think. This is the year!
But how? How can I accomplish this dream? Oh, if only there were some brilliant program available, somewhere in the universe, that could give me a dozen great projects and smart video tutorials and little kits of cool yarns for these projects.
If you’ve been hanging out with MDK this year, you know that A Year of Techniques is that magical, elegant program. Jen and Jim Arnall-Culliford have created something extraordinary. If you’ve been on the fence about whether to jump in, we hope a new year presents a good moment to start your adventure with this great program. We have two months to go in this 12-month program, and it’s easy to join at any time, starting with whatever project you like.
The projects are clever, original, and just the right mix of ease and challenge.
The designers are the best names in the business.
The videos are disarmingly simple—Jen makes you feel like anything is possible. They’re all free and available now, right here—go have a look if you’d like to see Jen in action.
The book captures all the teaching of the video tutorials in a form you can carry with you everywhere.
The yarn kits feature delicious yarns. See below for our kits for each project.
In the past year, we’ve seen so many knitters experience the aha moment of discovering a new techniques. With A Year of Techniques, you’ll find yourself thinking about knitting in a different way.
It is such fun. You can complete them in any order you like. There is no exam. There’s just the open-ended horizon of new ideas and beautiful knitting.
