If you’ve ever had questions about reading (or writing!) patterns, this is the episode for you! Join Zontee and Michelle as they explore the different elements of patterns–and how they are created.
Learn why pattern-reading is a lot like recipe-reading, and find out where some designers get the inspiration for their incredible designs.
Plus Zontee and Michelle answer a listener question and share tips on plane-friendly travel projects.
Then on Stash This: Ideas for Your Crafting Life, Michelle takes us to her movie corner, where we explore favorite films that feature needlework in scenes major and minor.
Join us in two weeks when we talk about socks and other sock-yarn projects. What are your favorite sock or sock-yarn patterns? Share them with us! Leave a message on the blog or email us at yarncraft [at] lionbrand [dot] com! You can also call in and leave a message at 774-452-YARN–that’s 774-452-9276.
Theme music is “Boy with a Coin” by Iron and Wine, from the PodSafe Music Network.
