I am wondering about the pretty grey sweater with the beads that Vickie is wearing in this episode. Is that a pattern that is available?

Thanks,

Liisa

It used to be easier to find the patterns when they were on the Knitting Daily site.  Now you have to go to a second site.  So  I signed on to Pinterest and searched for Josh Bennett and can't find a thing.  I like this show but want to access the patterns shown.   How can your viewers do that now?
