Field Guide 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 color. Wherever Cecelia Campochiaro leads, we are eager to follow.
The beloved 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, and we’ve been knitting sequence projects ever since. 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 color.
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.
These five designs are elegant canvases for your marling explorations.
