Don't be deceived by the name Knitting Daily TV, this Public Television program reaches out to crafters of all needle arts, including crocheters. On this newest season, which begins airing today, editor of Interweave Crochet magazine Editor Marcy Smith joins the show's crochet expert Kristin Omdahl on each episode for the Chain Reaction Afghan Project crochet-along. That's 13 episodes of crochet tips and techniques that will improve your skills and leave you with a gorgeous afghan you can keep or donate to charity.
Join the Crochet Reaction Afghan Crochet-Along!
The Chain Reaction Afghan Project is a collaborative blanket that features 20 crocheted squares designed by both well-known crochet designers and up-and-coming crocheters from our very own Crochet Me online community. The entire afghan pattern is available for free from the KnittingDailyTV.com website, so you can crochet right alongside Marcy and Kristin throughout the season. This afghan includes various crochet techniques, from simple to advanced, and Marcy and Kristin walk you through the steps of creating this one-of-a-kind afghan. Plus, they'll take a look at modifications you can make to the afghan such as color options and different layouts for your crocheted squares, so you can make this afghan uniquely yours. There are even great finishing techniques to put the afghan together.
Knitting Daily TV Series 700 also includes more crochet in the 13 episode lineup. There's a how-to segment with Kristin on seamless crochet and a look at crochet designs from the upcoming book Best of Interweave Crochet with Marcy Smith.
Also included in this season are quick tips for all fiber artists, such as using felted swatches to make a patchwork blanket, tips for buttonhole placement, in-depth looks at yarns available on the market today, and even information about mentoring programs that teach the next generation of crocheters the needle crafts.
With so much crochet this season, be sure to check your local listings for Knitting Daily TV in your area. Or, purchase the 4-DVD set of Knitting Daily TV Series 700, which is available on the Crochet Me Shop.
