Field Journal A collection of five designs by Meghan Jackson in collaboration with the Malabrigo Freelance Pattern Project.
Field Journal is a knitwear collection that includes a cardigan, two shawls, a cowl, and wristlets inspired by mushrooms, both in nature and folklore. Modern details mean the projects are simple enough to bring on a hike in your backpack if you have a few minutes to knit, yet sophisticated enough to wear anywhere. Lightweight Malabrigo yarns in vibrant earthy colours are featured prominently in garter, broken rib, eyelets, and other uncomplicated stitches. I hope you enjoy knitting these five nature sketches:
