I find it very frustating that when you say the patterns from your TV show will be available on your website, they are not.  I am speaking not of the first time I have run into this problem.  I went to find the pattern for series 810, the crochet flower scarf or filet crochet example but I could not find the pattern.  Can you please send me the instructions or where do I find them on the website?  Please resond to me at blandino57j@yahoo.com.

I agree with the three above posts. 810)  Where are directions for the filet flowers?  Seeing it once is not enough to do it correctly.

I cannot find any details from the program or the patterns that we could try,  Is it some kind of a gag.

Kristin, I too loved the crochet flower patter you demonstrated but feel the same frustration as others in not finding the pattern.  I love this show but it is upsetting when you want more information but can't find it.  Please help.  Thank you.
