Review of Modern Daily Knitting Field Guide No.9: Revolution

Revolution is the ninth edition of the Modern Daily Knitting Field Guides (previously known as Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guides). At the time of this post, there are twenty-three tittles in the series.

Revolution is a compilation of four cable pattens beautifully designed by Nora Gaughan. As an added bonus, three of the cable motifs are fully interchangeable so the knitter can mix and match them between the cardigan, pullover and caplet patterns. The fourth pattern is for a beret.

All patterns have both written-out instructions and charts. The book is very reasonably priced and comes in digital (PDF) and/or paperback editions.

The paperback is nice to the touch and lovely to have in a library. The digital copy, where specific pages can be printed out and/or zoomed in, is practical. In a budget, I would choose the digital version over the digital and print combo.

Rounding up…

Having just completed the “Liberty Tree Pullover” design from this book, I can definitely recommend adding Revolution to any knitter’s library. Whether one is cable novice or expert, Nora’s patterns are well explained, easy to follow and enjoyable to knit. I can see myself casting on the cardigan and the caplet in the future.
