• Field Guide No. 9 is Revolution For more than 30 years, Norah Gaughan has set our minds awhirl. She is a true revolutionary—a genius of construction, a master of cables, and a fearless innovator. These four designs are an extraordinary chance to play in Norah’s world.
• Field Guide No. 8 is Merry Making. This is the Field Guide that gives us the chance to make merry. To make plenty. To have near at hand a collection of clever designs that have a twist of fun and a splash of style.
For the designs in this Field Guide, we turned to one of the most skilled merrymakers we know, the inimitable Thea Colman. Thea took to heart the idea of designs that can be made quickly, easily, with enough variation that they never get old, and in lots of sizes.
You’ll see in these designs all Thea’s signatures: a crazy cable, graphic colorwork, juicy texture.
If you’re the organized, plan-ahead type, consider this Field Guide your prospectus for building a bountiful pile of hats, mitts, cowls, and coasters just in time for gift-knitting season!
