Description

Natural fibers are important to the environment and the overall knitting market, from producers to consumers. In episode 405 of Knitting Daily TV, we explore why they’re a fashionable and responsible choice for knitters and crocheters.

Back to Basics:
Eunny shows viewers how to “read” yarns – not from label, but by examining the individual threads.
Download more of Eunny's tips and tricks to better knitting.

Designer Spotlight:
Shay joins Linda Pratt from 
Westminster Fibers on location to discuss the movement toward organic and naturally dyed yarns that are produced in environmentally and socially responsible ways. The free pattern seen in this epiosde is for the Shawl Collar Cardigan, designed by Mari Lynn Patrick from Nashua Handknits in their Natural Focus Ecologie Wool, a 100 percent naturally dyed wool.

Crochet Corner:
In this epsiode's Crochet Corner, Kristin teaches you how to read a chart and measure your stitch gauge.
