Stranger Things – (NETFLIX) Grab some eighties mohair! Go up a hook size, though—scary moments tighten gauge.
Project to try: This calls for a project with strange shapes and colors. Try the Speakeasy Shawl.
Call the Midwife – (PBS) This calls for a baby blanket.
Project to try: The Sahara Afghan is perfect for new moms! It’s a mile-a-minute made in strips–perfect for baby naps.
Bloodline, 2 seasons – (NETFLIX) The ties that bind are as strong as super-bulky cotton yarn.

The Blacklist, 3 seasons–(CABLE AND ONLINE) Stop every few stitches to look over your shoulder.
Project to try: What a tangled web we weave. Work the Nightshade Skirt while watching this crime drama.
Transparent (AMAZON)– Live a little: crochet something sparkly.
Project to try: What’s more transparent than glass…nothing! Make the Expanse Scarf for a light and airy, see through project.
Grace & Frankie (NETFLIX) – Granny squares are just right.
Project to try: This show calls for granny squares, or maybe granny hexagons. Try the Head over Hexi Headboard as your companion for this show.
The Path (HULU) –Go for a communal project.
Project to try: A twisted show calls for a project with twists and turns. For this one, we give you Blanket Statement.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (NETFLIX)–This calls for a variegated yarn!
Project to try: A bright character calls for bright colors, so try one of Crochetscene’s brightest stars: the Colorado Poncho.
Orange is The New Black, 4 seasons (NETFLIX) – Crocheted ponchos have high trade value in a women’s prison.

Project to try: Step back to the turn of the century with the Mojave Gauntlets. Just stitch them with a solid color yarn for a project perfect to pair with a huge hat.
