Designer Spotlight:
 

Kristin Omdahl joins crochet designer and author Robyn Chachula on location. Robyn talks about her latest book, Baby Blueprint Crochet, which includes her blueprint crochet methods for making garments using the universal symbols and charts for crochet. With her techniques, reading crochet patterns in other languages becomes easier if you understand charts and symbols, and the garments in her new book are cute for babies and children. Download the Upcycled Washcloths pattern from her book, also seen on this episode.

Crochet Edgings and Trims:
 

On this segment of Crochet Corner with Kristin Omdahl she joins Shay for a tutorial on illusion edgings--it looks like many rows of crochet, but each repeat is worked back and forth upon itself in a single row of edging. The Deco Skirt pattern specified as a download on this episode of Crochet Corner is not available. Instead, please download the Cables and Lace Broomstick Hat pattern, from Kristin's book Crochet So Fine.
