Bobbley, Baubley, Boo! Explore Knitted Bobbles and Crocheted Baubles on Knitting Daily TV Episode 909
We're bobbing for baubles on this episode! Join host of Knitting Daily TV Eunny Jang and experts Clara Parkes, Kristin Omdahl, and Shay Pendray as they explore the knitted bobble, crocheted baubles, and much more.
Eunny begins this episode with a tutorial on textural stitches. Learn a faux bobble stitch that is shown on the Bobble Beret, from the Fall 2012 issue of Interweave Knits magazine.
FYI: in this episode, Eunny is wearing Bettie's Pullover from the Winter 2011 issue of Interweave Knits.
Crochet expert Kristin Omdahl joins up with Shay on this Accessorize Me! segment to showcase a crocheted cuff made by crocheting with wire. Kristin demonstrates this fun technique. Download the Cleopatra Cuff and crochet along with Kristin.

Join Eunny and Clara on this episode's Yarn Spotlight as they discuss yarn's halo. What is a yarn halo and what yarns tend to have them? Featured on this Yarn Spotlight is Bijou Basin Ranch's Seraphim yarn, an angora and and vicose blend. The viscose in this yarn keeps the mohair's halo less drastic. Also featured is Halcyon Yarn's Victorian Boucle, a mohair, wool, and nylon blended yarn with a strong halo that isn't sticky and creates a soft fabric. Also seen is Be Sweet's mohair yarn (light pink) and Grignasco Knits' kid seta yarn (red).
Watch the entire yarn spotlight segment with Eunny and Clara:
Eunny finishes this episode with a woven cable stitch, another textural stitch that adds depth to your knitwear. It's seen here on a fedora featured in the Fall 2012 issue of Interweave Knits magazine.
