Host Eunny Jang begins this episode with a tutorial on sleeve shapes and styles that you can choose from in designing knitwear.

Eunny is wearing the Smocked Bodice pullover from Interweave Knits Spring 2013.
The second installment of the Tesserae knitted tee pullover by Vicki Square continues with step-by-step instructions on shaping this tee while working in the slip-stitch pattern. Originally from Light and Layered Knits, you can download the Tesserae mosaic top and knit along with Vicki Square.
Clara Parkes and Eunny Jang join up in the knitting lab for another yarn spotlight, this time talking about yarn construction with blended fibers. Seen here is Imperial Yarn's Anna yarn, a cotton and wool blend, and Mango Moon's new Twist yarn, which is a linen and cotton blend.
Eunny wraps up this episode with a quick tip for knitting two sleeves at a time, a great way to save time and effort when knitting a cardigan, tee, or pullover sweater.
