Crochet Ribbing 7 Ways: Megastar Shibaguyz designer Shannon Mullett-Bowlsby shows you how to create 7 different ribbings for your crochet projects. Single- or double-sided, stretchy or firm—these post stitch and blo ribbings add useful structure and cool design touches to projects. In addition to showing you how to work each stitch, Shannon discusses the best uses for each.
Crochet Post Stitches in Lace: This course from Robyn Chachula is a study of beauty-meets-brawn.

If you’ve ever suffered that cute top growing into a schlumpy tunic after only 3 wears, this is the course for you!
Head to the top of the class with Crochet Garment Design. A blockbuster course from Shannon Mullett-Bowlsby, who discusses fashion, form, fit, function and how they all fit together into something FAB. Learn how to turn your design ideas into reality with this in-depth (and really fun) course.
iCan Click is a great course from the other half of the Shibaguyz, Jason Mullet-Bowlsby. Want to share images of your work online, whether to sell or simply show off? Learn how a Smartphone camera is your best friend, a small-but-powerful tool you almost always have with you.
