I like that you can download the featured patterns from the episode, but I find video buffering annoying. I am also an experienced knitter and crocheted, I think the show is more of an overview for the designers' patterns, and not so much a teaching platform for less experienced crafters of beginner and intermediate level, as time constraints mean some aspects are rushed through, while the focus is more on the main stitch used in the pattern. I guess if a crafter is having difficulty with the pattern, there would be contact details in the downloadable pattern to ask help from the designer. I would be more likely to give the colour-work crochet a go, than the simple afghans, due to my years of knitting and crochet projects.
