Then, knitwear designer and author Vicki Square will finish up the Tesserae knit-along. Learn the three-needle bind off and picking up neckline stitches for a clean finish. Finishing involves yarn too and during the Yarn Spotlight, Clara and Eunny take a look at two-and three ply yarns and the look imparted on the finish of your stitches. Then, Eunny wraps up with Quick Tips for picking up in texture and lace patterns, and reversible edgings.

Then, guest designer and author Vicki Square returns for the third part of knitting the Tesserae Tee. Knit-along and shape the neckline and see how sleeve shaping corresponds to other shaping. On today's Yarn Spotlight Clara Parkes and Eunny take a look at a new twist on luxury fiber blends-these are beyond the standard two-ply cashmeres and silks. Finally, Eunny ends with a Quick Tip for shaping a neckline in-the-round by using short rows.
