Instead of changing into a sweater as he typically does, Mister Rogers puts on a vest made by his friend Saihou Njie. Wearing the vest, he visits the studio of Mr. Njie who is sewing a new vest. Mr. Njie shows how he makes designs on fabric and and gives Mister Rogers a colorful piece of batik cloth that matches his vest.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, the Trolley brings a batik cloth to Handyman Negri who then gives it to King Friday. In return, the King gives Handyman Negri a fortune cookie with a curious fortune: "Look for lots and lots of circles." Prince Tuesday seems sad as he talks to Handyman Negri about people sometimes not liking things that are given to them.

At the factory, Handyman Negri mentions the circles to Corney who is blowing bubbles when Mayor Maggie comes by. Handyman Negri is invited to the Museum-Go-Round where Mayor Maggie, Lady Elaine, and Fortune Cookie Man show him "lots and lots of circles" as they are playing with hula hoops.

Back at the house, Mr. McFeely stops by with a videotape about how people make bagels.
