    Johny, I love your teaching and classes.
    When we get a new stitch a day, I would like to see suggestions on what to use it on, or even a pattern using it.
    I would gladly pay for a pattern incorporating the beautiful stitch I just learned.
    Keep up the good work.

      We do include suggestions in the written description. It is not practical for us to research patterns that use all these stitches. Hope that helps.

        I am so glad you guys put the (crochet) Mixed Cluster stitch out via email today. I had a swatch made up of this stitch BUT I couldn’t remember what the name of the stitch was! I thought I was going to have to just rip it all out and use the yarn for another Stitch swatch. What a relief I don’t have to do that now! :))

        Thank you!!
