These are sure to be the special doll that gets dragged everywhere. Ellen is in the stitch corner showing how to crochet the Fishbone Stitch.

Artsy Afghans (Episode #705H)

KQED Life: Fri, Nov 10, 2017 -- 2:00 PM

Host Deborah Norville believes nothing says you're special like a handmade afghan, it's like a perpetual hug from the person who stitched it. Ellen is first up with the Geometric Crochet Afghan, which features a lace border, and then Kristin shows how to stich up the Windowpane Afghan, which is knit in the round, then cutting it to make it flat! In the stitch corner Ellen teaches how to Crochet a Cable.

Everybody loves scarves and this week Host Deborah Norville joins Lena Skvagerson who will show you how to knit the Slip That Stich Scarf and magically make two colors appear in the same row without carrying the yarn. Ellen will show us her interpretation of a crochet mosaic scarf with the Nascha Crochet Scarf and then back to Lena in the stitch corner with her very own Knit Crocodile Stitch.
