  3. Teresa I have learned so much watching your crochet videos. I have a special request. I saw a diagonal stitch scarf and was wondering if it would be possible for you to make a tutorial. The tutorial I found online is in french. It does have some diagrams but I know I would do so much better watching a tutorial. Here's the address to the blog where I found some instructions:
