I have been trying to find a couple of patterns from Knit & Crochet Now episode #205. I have given up on Brett's flowered Granny Square of the week, I wrote her, the show, etc....w/ no response. BUT, I cannot give up on the Mosaic Crochet footstool cover you demonstrated, I really want to try that. Again, I have tried emailing & posting over & over again, & searched the web repeatedly w/ no luck. This is my last hope.
