This is a little book chock full of love. And great big knits that come together fast.
With great joy, we welcome a Field Guide that will give us all a season of knitting gifts for those we love.
Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 12: Big Joy.

The designer is someone we have admired for many years: Jen Geigley.
Jen’s point of view is modern, whimsical, fun.
The five patterns in MDK Field Guide No. 12: Big Joy play with scale, texture, and color in such a joyful way.
Brambleberry Cowl: A rich texture to wrap around your neck.
Main Squeeze Cardigan: A cozy cocoon—this sweater knits up in a snap. The mix of texture, proportion, and basic technique makes this project fun as a knitter’s first sweater. In 11 sizes.
Stripey Scrappy Hats: We are big believers in getting a groove on and making a batch of gifts. The more of these you make, the more inventive the color combinations will become.
Rubble Hats: Stranded fun and a cute shape combine for a modern, witty design. A hat that brings a smile.
Bobble Throw: The secret to this throw? The color bobbles are added after knitting the blanket. This allows plenty of fun in playing with color and design–how many bobbles? Which colors?
All the designs in MDK Field Guide No. 12 call for Rowan Big Wool, the fluffiest, softest merino imaginable. It’s big. Real big: the chunkiest yarn we’ve ever offered. These designs all use size 11 or 13 needles (8mm or 9mm), so that’s a clue to how quickly these projects will knit up. (Addi Rockets right here.)
We’ve stocked Rowan Big Wool in 14 colors. This beautiful palette is pretty much foolproof—all the colors play well together, which is one of those miracles that Rowan is famous for. See the whole range here.
A Season of Generous Knitting
What’s ahead? So much. We’re planning a bunch of ways for us all to knit together. Jen’s big heart has inspired us, so we hope you’ll join in as we get started on our holiday knitting.
And yes, there will be pie.
As always, thank you for supporting all that goes on at MDK with your purchases!
