It’s rare that a maker has love for only one method, so on this episode of The Knit Show with Vickie Howell we experiment with multi-craftuality — mixing materials, and combining knitting and crochet with sewing, weaving, and more!

We’re in the studio with former host of PBS’ Knit & Crochet Now, and co-owner of Brooklyn Craft Company, Brett Bara. Brett’s impeccable style and eye for all that is cool, spills into this segment as she shows us how to make a fold-over clutch that’s part knit with yarn, part sewn with leather, and finished off with a bead and tassel closure.

Make it: Leather, Wool & Wood Foldover Clutch!
