Yarn Spotlight:
Join Eunny and Clara on this episode's Yarn Spotlight as they discuss yarn's halo. What is a yarn halo and what yarns tend to have them? Featured on this Yarn Spotlight is Bijou Basin Ranch's Seraphim yarn, an angora and and vicose blend. The viscose in this yarn keeps the mohair's halo less drastic. Also featured is Halcyon Yarn's Victorian Boucle, a mohair, wool, and nylon blended yarn with a strong halo that isn't sticky and creates a soft fabric. Also seen is Be Sweet's mohair yarn (light pink) and Grignasco Knits' kid seta yarn (red).

Quick Tip:
Eunny finishes this episode with a woven cable stitch, another textural stitch that adds depth to your knitwear. It's seen here on a fedora featured in the Fall 2012 issue of Interweave Knits magazine.

Loved the Herringbone stitch... wish I could find a easy pattern for it... looks like I will be re-watching the episode and figuring something out :)

I bought the Interweave Fall Issue 2012 to get the pattern for the Fedora Hat or "Woven Rain Hat" and need the 909 Series to show me how to do that very intrigue stitch that was on the TV program. Do I have to purchase the whole TV program series $39.+ just to see how she did it. I watched the show when she did it and that's how I got interested in the Fedora. I have knitted many years but need to watch her do that over and over again. Obviously I didn't catch it after one example. I like your show or I wouldn't be watching it. Please advise Much appreciated.

I also loved the Herringbone stitch... I taked the show and watched it several times and wrote down the instructions.   Easy to do... knitted samples using different size needles and different yarns.  None showed the Herringbone pattern as beautifully as the yarn Eunny used on the show.   Can you tell us what yarn you used - did that tan yarn have a light purple mixed in?  or was that a glare on my TV screen? Please let us know the type yarn and color#.   Thanks, Ginger

I recorded this episode and loved the herringbone stitch. I took notes, but now I can't seem to get the stitch right. Of course, I erased the recording. Could someone post the stitch pattern? Especially how many stitches? (i.e., multiple of 4 + 1, etc.)

Thanks!
