The link to find a PBS station doesn't work. Have these episodes started airing? I have my DVR set to record them but there are none available.

I just bought episode 806 for the faux overlapping motif edging. Is there written instructions available?

I am trying to find the written instructions for the faux overlapping motif edging as well. At the end of the show episode it says you can find written instructions for everything shown in the show, but I can't find this one. Thanks.

So. You can give out patterns for knitters, but not crocheters? Doesn't that that qualify as a kind of RACISM or PREJUDICE? Just because we practice a different craft than knitters doesn't make our craft less valid...does it?

I love the sweaters shown behind Deb Robson while she talked with Euny about fibers pilling.  They were considered 'vintage' sweaters that were over 40 years old.

Beautiful!!!   Classic!!!  

Are the patterns available?

What fiber/wool/yarn was used to keep them looking so well for so long?
