The Sweater with Kathleen Dames | Season Four, Episode Three : The Swatch

Oh, swatching, you are not always our favorite, but you give us lots of good information (sometimes). Today we talk a little bit about different kinds of swatches, including my favorite: the swatch that is also a thing (like the Enwreathed Cowl or one of two sleeves). I also talk a little bit about needles and how you may only need one to knit a sweater (that’s how I do it, anyway).


Remember: Episode Five: LIVE SHOW will be here before we know it, so start asking your questions now, and I will answer them on the air in a couple of weeks. The best way to ask is by hitting reply on a newsletter email message, but you can also leave comments on episode pages on YouTube or on posts on Instagram/Twitter or on my Ravelry group.

xoxo, Kathleen
