Reversibility knits and crochet give you various options for your wardrobe. Some sweaters or shawls are completely reversible, while others may have cuffs and collars that offer you the option of turning them up or down for a variety of different looks. On this episode of Knitting Daily TV, host Eunny Jang and experts Shay Pendray and Clara Parkes explore the reversible.
Watch a preview of episode 903:
Eunny begins this episode with examples and
demonstrations of reversible fabrics. Just because something is reversible,
doesn't mean its exactly the same on both sides. This reversibility is displayed
with the Chincoteague
Jacket by Lisa Jacobs from the Spring 2012 issue of Interweave Knits
magazine (seen at right). By making this jacket with reversible stitches and with different
buttons on each side, this jacket gives the wearer two different options.
Eunny also demonstrates reversible stitches and shows the viewer how to pick up stitches invisibly, so you can make anything reversible with the right stitch pattern and this invisible techniques for picking up stitches.
