Listen as Marly and Sharon discuss the choices made of yarn weights, techniques and more this book has to offer! The Swallowtail Cowl, worked in Tunisian honeycomb stitch caught Marly’s eye – how about you? Woven yarn is not just for knitters, as shown in the Marabou scarf! Sharon also talks about some of her favorite projects: Crisp Green Apple and the Classic Plaid was a rewarding project and worth all the stitches!

    Marly — Thanks for doing the podcast with Crochet Scarves. I’m a competent beginner at crochet, but get hopelessly confused when I crochet something that’s not square. Even with charts, I have trouble getting the right number of stitches in a row. I used to know how to do Tunisian crochet I think (30 years ago what I did was called afghan stitch), but I’ve lost it. Your conversation with Sharon gave me some confidence to try to increase my skill level — and I’ve ordered Crochet Scarves to help me get there. — Jan
