No one likes spending lots of time knitting garments that don’t end up fitting! Knitwear and crochet designer Amy O’Neill Houck shares a sweater template rather than a pattern. She uses math formulas and techniques to customize this template. As you knit, you take measurements and make choices so that the resulting sweater fits your body, and has design elements of your choice as well such as longer sleeves or body, tapered sleeves, different edgings, and stitch patterns.
This episode keeps things clean with fashionable aprons! I create an apron out of shopping bags, Jesse Kelly-Landes makes a utility apron out of oil cloth, and Jennifer Perkins makes a maternity shirt out of a vintage apron. We also meet Lizelle Villapando and Talena Rasmussen from Booyo (and Parts & Labour) who make cool retro reversible aprons.
