MDK Field Guide No. 19: Marls
What happens when we knit with multiple strands of yarn at once? Five artful patterns introduce us to the concept of marling and set us on a gorgeous exploration of texture and colour.
Author and designer Cecelia Campochiaro has the gift of seeing knitting at its most elemental, exploring knitted fabrics at stitch level, from the ground up. Cecelia first introduced us to her groundbreaking concept of sequence knitting, now she’s showing us another irresistible sort of knitting.
Marling is the effect we get when we combine strands of different fiber, weight, or coloor.
This Field Guide is a tantalizing tasting menu of different types of marling. The effects are amazing, and amazingly intuitive to create. The fabrics are a sensory joy to knit, and they are beautiful to wear.
The five designs in this Field Guide are elegant canvases for your marling explorations.
