MDK Field Guide 14: Refresh

This lovely collection feature beautiful textures, tying my structural background  and love of interesting construciton into each design. There is the fabulous cabled Transom Cardigan – set to become a wardrobe staple; the Arcade Cap is a great taster project for Nua yarn, using just 1 or 2 skeins; the sinuous cables of the Twining Wrap are show-stopping; and the Trellis Top has a clever construction with buttons up the sides.

Each design in the collection uses Nua Sport– a glorious blend of merino, yak and linen fibres. It creates drapey fabrics that look incredible with textures. See below for yarn requirements for each of the patterns.
