Learn how to read crochet charts and symbols with this primer from crochet expert Kristin Omdahl. Crochet charts are the universal language of crochet, and once you've mastered these skills you can read any crochet chart, no matter what language the pattern is written in.
Eunny visits with celebrity knitter Deborah Norville on how she got started knitting. They also talk about great projects for beginning knitters that go beyond the scarf and only require one ball or skein of yarn. Deborah suggests using varigated yarn for your first project because its not only beautiful but hides mistakes well. She also demonstrates a fun, new way to cast-on, perfect for those that have trouble with other cast-on methods.
