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

episodes of crochet tips and techniques that will improve your skills and leave

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

website, so you can crochet right alongside Marcy and Kristin throughout the
season. This afghan includes various crochet techniques, from simple to

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.
