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!

Vickie jumps on a plane to Kent, Washington to bring you this episode’s field trip: a visit to one of her favorite multi-craft stores, Makers’ Mercantile.
On this episode’s Vic’s Tips, Vickie plays with Waves Crochet Hooks and different types of ribbon and lacing to add pops of color and texture to plain, plastic bangles.
