Unusual or Unique? How about both! Episode 908 of Knitting Daily TV celebrates the Usually Unique.

Oct 15, 2012

Join host of Knitting Daily TV Eunny Jang to celebrate the usually unique on episode 908 of Knitting Daily TV, the public television show dedicated to knitting techniques, crochet know-how, trendsetting designers, yarn, and fiber-related patterns and projects.

Getting Started:

On this episode's how-to knitting technique segment, Eunny demonstrates Andean colorwork's scalloped edging. A lot easier to knit than it looks, you can add this unique edging to any design. Shown here this edging is on a hand-knitted stocking cap from Peru.

Eunny is wearing the Mermaid Shrug designed by Kristin Omdahl for the Spring 2012 issue of Interweave Crochet magazine.

Great idea with the casing on the Hope Top! My only suggestion would be to have a 'life line' inside as you knit together the existing and 6-rows-below stitches. Then you could tie the end of the I-cord to the end of the life line and pull through. Beautiful sweater Kristen!
