I have very basic knowledge with crochet and knitting, this lesson was very good in how she explained everything and then going over it again. At this time I have not done any of the projects, but will when I find all my needles.

I love this online class. However, I am left handed and had a little trouble following along with the second project, but I finally got it. This also helped me correct some simple mistakes that I have made before. Will be viewing more soon.

I thought the class was fairly well done I have only done the first project so far, but I found sometimes the instructors fingers were in the way of seeing exactly where she was putting the hook and I found the forward and back arrows don't work and you have to use the slide at the top and it is hard to back up to where you wanted to see the step in slow motion I am a beginner and having lots of fun learning to crochet.

I loved this class; it is so easy to follow. I have always wanted to learn how to crochet, and I am very confident about mastering the basic stitches and creating some wonderful projects. I also love being able to watch the video over and over to catch a step or process I may have missed.

I am a first time crocheter, first time online class. I was skeptical about an online class and was surprised by how quickly it made sense. I am a visual learner and the camera angles where perfect. The best feature is the pause button, especially when you get overwhelmed.
