Get five knitting designs for Léttlopi yarn with five interchangeable stitch motifs.

These are quick, tremendously fun designs to knit again and again.

Mary Jane Mucklestone is one of our great travelers, exploring the world with knitting in hand. And she has taught legions of knitters all about working with color.

This Field Guide is our chance to set off with Mary Jane to explore Lettlopi, the Icelandic yarn that is so lofty yet warm.

Get ready for a season of cozy knitting with Mary Jane and her colorful ideas. Field Guide No. 17 is a collection of five designs that we will knit again and again.

Daytripper Cardigan

Quick to make, full of color, this is a lightweight sweater because it’s knitted on US size 10 (6 mm) needles. This Cardigan can be knit up in a matter of days. Buttoned or buttonless, the choice is yours!

You'll need 8 colors of  Léttlopi yarn, 6-9 balls A color, 2-3 balls B color and  1 ball each of six colors.

It includes a steek for the front opening, which is such a great new technique to try if you haven’t had the chance. See you in a few days in your new cardi!

Destination Pullover

Pockets! A sweet touch on this simple, cozy sweater.

You'll need 3 colors of  Léttlopi yarn, 3-5 balls A color, 3-5 balls B color and 4-6 balls C color.

Blocks of color are connected by brief moments of stranded colorwork. Knit on a size US 10 (6 mm) needle, the Léttlopi yarn becomes a fabric that is lofty and light—just the thing for a cool day.

Destination Scarf

A design that lets colors shift as quietly or dramatically as you like.

You'll need 1 ball each of  Léttlopi yarn in 5 or more colors.

Mix your colors and choose among the five stitch motifs to cook up your own unique fluffer.

Jaunty Beanie

This is serious multiples territory. A hat that lets you fool around with your color pairings and stranded color pattern? You’ll finish one and already be scheming up the next one.

You'll need 1 ball each of  Léttlopi yarn in 2 or more colors.

The pom pom is just the cherry on top and the way to use up all those oddments.

Trinket Mittens

These mittens are a traditional style that Mary Jane discovered years ago during her time in Sweden.

You'll need 1 ball each of  Léttlopi yarn in 2 or more colors.

Choose your cuff motif from the five motifs included in the Field Guide.
