The models in the "fashion show" segment on episode 206 wore sweaters that I would like to knit.  Is there a way to find where to purchase the patterns?

I agree with Alice, I'd like to know the names of the patterns worn in the last segment - especially the last one!

Help!  I'm looking for the patterns of the sweaters that they model at the end of the show. Specially the blue and the striped one.  Does anyone know where to find them?
