Okay, I am frustrated.  On episode 609, when Shay and Kristen were demonstrating the shawl with added crochet edgings, Shay said that the pattern would be on the website. I cannot find it.  I can find Kristen's book to purchase, but not the shawl with the crochet edgings.  Where is it? What to I click on to find that pattern?

Not fair to say that the pattern of the crochet shawl will be on the web when it is not.Same thing happened with another crochet scarf. It seems to me that no one reads the comments

I would love to see the pattern for the cute honeycomb Brioche hat that Eunny shows at the beginning of the Getting Started segment, but they don't mention on the site any reference to the pattern or what publication has the pattern.
