Field Guide 23: Glow
MDK Field Guide No. 23: Glow, featuring four designs that are full of color, style, and joy.
Welcome to a world of exuberant color and pattern, from the brilliant, beloved designers Arne and Carlos.
This is knitting at its most joyful. Knitters love the way Arne and Carlos tap into Norwegian knitting traditions, but with a modern sensibility.
Known by knitters the world over, Arne and Carlos are particularly beloved for their weekly video podcast, Sit and Knit for a Bit, in which they welcome knitters into their home in Norway for a warmhearted, wide-ranging chat session.
The conversation covers a lot: from knitting and crafting to design and folklore, with dashes of laughter and whimsy throughout. With their impressive portfolio of collaborations with influential fashion houses, Arne and Carlos’ designs for hand knitters are a breath of crisp, clear air.
This is knitting for the cozy days of winter—straight from the beautiful knitting traditions of Norway.
- Setesdal Hat. Get your colorwork going with this simple design—it’s a glorious way to try out Arne and Carlos’s color sense and easy stitch patterns.
- Valdres Pullover. A completely modern take on the famous Norwegian ski sweater, this is the sort of treasure to knit and love forever. We love the mix of colors and pattern here, full of surprise and fun.
- Rosy Mittens. The classic Norwegian mitten, with modern color added for fun. These are knitted in two colors, the embroidery adds the details.
- Kos Neckwarmer. Arne and Carlos are constantly cooking up neckwarmers that are all about whimsy and good cheer. This one is stacked with hearts and zigzags and colorful fun. It also happens to be an incredible warming layer.
