Episode 4 – Set-in Sleeves, Steeks and Tudor Women

In Episode 4 we look a little more closely at some Alice Starmore Fair Isle patterns, how to steek and modify a garment to set in sleeves. We also introduce the new segment “Knitters of the World”, and there’s a walk in the German countryside and a visit to an old castle ruin. Enjoy!
