This tutorial is very helpful. I started with just the directions that came with the kit, but got confused in a few places when the patterns were new to me. After quite a bit of UTube searching, I finally found it, and it has clarified all my confusion. I was really disappointed though, that when I contacted Annnie's customer service site to ask if there was a video or help with my questions, no one ever responded. Big thanks to Lena Skvagerson for her easy to follow instructions. The button to repeat the last 30, 60 or 90 Seconds was a Very Useful feature.

I'm in the middle of making this afghan. The video is extremely helpful. I like that you can rewind and watch the sections over again. I like the choice of 30, 60 or 90 second rewind. I will look for patterns with video tutorials in the future. I never would have made it using just the written instructions. My only recommendation is to provide links for each row by row number. This would make it easier to get to the right spot on the video. Well done. .

This is a beautiful afghan to make. The video tutorial is super easy to follow, and as someone who is new to crocheting, I appreciated the step-by-step video instruction, and it also taught me how to read the pattern as we went along. This was my first big crochet project and I loved learning all the new stitches and textures. I can't wait to start making another one.
