Cecelia’s Sequence Knitting is one of the most amazing knitting books. Her encyclopedia of knit-purl patterns shows us the endless possibility to be found in the simplest of stitch combinations. We’re thrilled to have the chance to collaborate with Cecelia on this Field Guide, which serves as an introduction to Cecelia’s cool ideas.
Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 5: Sequences is pure knitting play, with four projects from Cecelia’s fertile imagination.
Corrugated Shawl: This sampler of 16 sequences creates textures you cannot anticipate—which is where the fun is. The resulting wrap has extraordinary drape and texture. It’s a timeless piece to wear forever.
Parallelogram Scarf: Two slow-changing skeins of yarn make this scarf a glorious color adventure. In a busy season, this low-stakes drama may be all we need.
Swirl Hat: When we work sequences in the round, a simple stitch pattern gets interesting very quickly. This is a great unisex hat.
Freak Flags: Decreasing stitches will create even more texture surprises, and these cheerful pennants of knitterly joy make the best sort of experiment. Decorate your house, your tree, yourself—we would never dream of telling you how to fly your Freak Flags.
