Crafting with a Backseat Driver

Sometimes we all need a little assistance with new skills. So what do you do when you aren't quite happy with the crochet edging on the collar of your newly finished Nuss sweater knit from Berocco Blackstone Tweed? Why you visit us here at the shop to get some advice, of course!

We took a look at Deb N's sweater and discussed some options for blocking for sizing reasons and re-creating the crocheted edging. We called on our crochet expert, Barb, for a bit of crochet crab stitch demonstration. Crab stitch can be a bit tricky as it seems 'backwards' but after a bit of assistance from Barb (aka the "Backseat Crocheter") things started to flow more smoothly.
Thanks for being such a great sport Deb, and good luck with that edging!
