Grab your hooks and take a seat!
Another season of Knitting Daily TV is about to air on Public Television stations nationwide, and once again this 10th series has a lot to offer crocheters. Yarn expert Clara Parkes joins the cast for her second season with the much loved a yarn spotlight, a look at yarn characteristics and best uses. And, guest star Robyn Chachula pays a visit with crochet segments on jewelry and afghan edgings.

On episode 1008, Robyn demonstrates a crocheted ruffle edging that is both easy to crochet and charming. Add this to the bottom of a lace tank, crochet this edging around a blanket or afghan, or even add this to the bottom of a crocheted shawl and you have an instantly feminine project with a bit of flair. Watch this episode for a first-hand look at Robyn's ruffled stitch.
