Reversibility Counts – Knitting Daily TV Episode 903
Reversibility knits and crochet give you various options for your wardrobe. Some sweaters or shawls are completely reversible, while others may have cuffs and collars that offer you the option of turning them up or down for a variety of different looks. On this episode of Knitting Daily TV, host Eunny Jang and experts Shay Pendray and Clara Parkes explore the reversible.
Watch a preview of episode 903:
Eunny begins this episode with examples and demonstrations of reversible fabrics. Just because something is reversible, doesn't mean its exactly the same on both sides. This reversibility is displayed with the Chincoteague Jacket by Lisa Jacobs from the Spring 2012 issue of Interweave Knits magazine (seen at right). By making this jacket with reversible stitches and with different buttons on each side, this jacket gives the wearer two different options.
Eunny also demonstrates reversible stitches and shows the viewer how to pick up stitches invisibly, so you can make anything reversible with the right stitch pattern and this invisible techniques for picking up stitches.
Eunny is wearing the Peony Cardigan by Cecily Glowik MacDonald, featured in the Spring 2012 issue of Interweave Knits magazine.
On this episode's Accessorize Me! segment, Eunny joins crochet expert Kristin Omdahl with a reversible crocheted mobius design that is made of strips of crocheted fabric.
