I really enjoyed the video. I already knew how to crochet but needed a little refresher on some of the stitches and how to finish projects. I got a few new hits that my mother never taught me. It was easy and I could do it at my leisure. I found it easy to learn and the pause button on my iPad helped too. I would recommend this video to any beginner, or anyone who needs a refresher like me.

Actually learned to crochet! Much better than a class that I took on another site. Ellen walks you through all the stitches, but most importantly, shows you how to put them all together in 3 different small projects. Would definitely recommend to a beginner.

I love this class, I can basic crochet but always had problems changing colors and dreaded doing anything multicolored however after taking this class and seeing how easy it is to switch colors as well as types of stitches I am looking forward to making my new niece a beautiful colorful blanket.

Second class I buy from this instructor. Really like the projects. I already knew how to crochet, however I really enjoy this class. I used the picot edging on one of my projects. I will be watching this class over and over. Oh, and I love the two flowers. Thank you!!!!

Love the class. Everything is so clear. I really like the repeat option so I can keep watching the same thing until I get it.
