New Knit and Crochet Techniques Added to the Glossaries

As I promised a while back, every time I use a new technique not already listed in my knit and crochet glossaries, I update this website feature.
For the Swag Sweater I just completed for Tilli Tomas, I used the tubular cast on technique, which also requires the use of the crochet chain cast on. So, both techniques have been added.

I just finished writing the pattern for a really cool crochet lace tunic that will be featured in Crochet! Magazine this summer, and it required the use of a 5-dtr cluster. I updated the crochet glossary to include this and a couple of other clusters, too.

I'm finishing up a lacy boatneck top for Cast On Magazine and used the picot cast on technique. This technique requires the use of cable cast on, too. Both techniques are new today.
