Here at the Knit Picks Podcast, we’re often excited to share new patterns with you all, but this week we’re talking about revisiting old patterns that we love to knit over and over again. Stacey throws it back with her most recent Clapotis that’s fresh on her needles, and Lee and Andi discuss using Lee’s self-published eBooks over and over again to create something new each time. Our hosts also chat about how using a new yarn can refresh an older pattern to make it feel modern again. 
Plus, the time has come to wrap up our Game Day Knit Along. The hosts discuss finishing (or not finishing) their projects, and everyone is still contemplating adding pockets to their cardigans. If you knit along with us, we’d love to hear from you about if you enjoyed participating and what you might like to see for future KALs!
