Knit and Crochet Now! Season 5

Well, if you subscribe to their newsletter you already know but if not…take a look!

Knit and Crochet Now! 

Season 5 Premieres This Month!

The new season of Knit and Crochet Now! will begin airing on public television stations in February. Check your local listings for dates and times.

We’re excited to bring you 13 all-new episodes featuring projects that will have you reaching for your hooks and needles. Presented by host Brett Bara, along with crochet experts Ellen Gormley and Marly Bird and knitting experts Kristin Nicholas and Amy Herzog, each episode includes both knitting and crochet, as well as our Scarf of the Week segment. The projects were selected to teach you interesting techniques you can use right away.


As always, full instructions for each of the featured projects will be available on our website at KnitAndCrochetNow.com.


If you can’t find Knit and Crochet Now! in your area, there are two things you can do. First, write to your local public television station and let them know you would like to see the show. Second, watch this space. We’ll let you know when streaming video and DVDs of season 5 are available.

What’s New for Season 5?  
The first thing you’ll notice is our new set. We’ve changed the color scheme and the furniture to keep things fresh.


We also have two new experts joining us for season 5.

Amy Herzog is joining us as a knitting expert. Amy is passionate about great clothes. She is the author of Knit to Flatter (STC Craft, 2013), and the creator of CustomFit, a website that produces custom sweater patterns. She teaches classes across the country and her figure-flattering designs have been published in Twist Collective, Knitscene, Interweave Knits, Knitty and more.


Marly Bird is filling in for Robin Chachula as a crochet expert this season (Robin gave birth to a healthy boy just weeks before the new season was taped). Marly is the host of the Yarn Thing Podcast With Marly Bird. Her knitting and crochet designs have been published by many yarn companies and magazines. She is the author of I Can’t Believe I’m Knitting Entrelac (Leisure Arts, 2013) and is the co-author of Knitting for Dummies 3rd edition (Wiley, 2013) and Curvy Crochet: Fashion for the Plus-Size Woman (Leisure Arts, 2010).

    I’ve never had the pleasure of watching “Knit and Crochet Now!” but I am an avid knitter and crocheter. I am sure I would thoroughly enjoy it. I first learned to crochet from my Grandma who is now 94! Go Grandma!
