The shawl that Shay is wearing in the Crochet Corner is gorgeous.  Can you tell me where I can get the pattern?

I would really like it if when your demonstrating or on the web you all would tell what the basic pattern is as the scarf Cristy demonstrated to day. she had the basic row done and did not give the directions. This happens all the time.  otherwise I love the show.   Glennys Case Pierre SD.  gcase@pie.midco.net  It is very difficult to find your patterns that you say is on the web site

I, too, cannot find how to do the beginning part of the reversible crocheted striped edging. Perhaps its because the directions are in her soon-to-be-released book, mentioned above??? I'm working on figuring it out myself. It may not be exact, but it'll be roughly the same. Anyone have any ideas? Maybe we could do this between us all.
