Lena is an excellent instructor. I like the fact that you can replay the last 30, 60, 90 seconds as many times as you need. I did have a horrid time with the Rib Stitch Section. Ripped it all out several times as I had a hard time figuring out which stitch I was working. Hopefully will do better the next time. I think it would be awfully difficult to complete this afghan without the video.

Love the look of this Gansey pattern but want to make it wider than the called for 44" . Is there a multiple for this pattern so that I may make it wider. It will be a gift for my adopted daughter & it will be made in her favorite color of Royal blue. Any help would be appreciated.Lesley Shields

With guidance from Lena, I used 24 as a multiplier. The original stitch count is 24x6144 and 144+3147. I wanted a shawl, so I went with 24x372 and 72+375. With a chain of 76 and a stitch count of 75, every section worked out beautiful to the design. I am loving this design and textures very much. Thank you Lena for your quick response to my question. It was so very helpful.

I think Lena is a wonderful instructor - the videos are precise and accurate. But I have to say that - like Alice F - I would like to know the multiplier for this pattern. In order to make the piece bigger or smaller with a different gauge... We paid for the pattern - why not share this information??? I can guess the number but I think putting the multiplier for each section would be in order and should be shared

Lena is a fantastic instructor. I enjoy crocheting with her videos. 5 star all the way although I give this class only 4 stars as there is no choice for left handed video as in the Annie's Kit Club tutorials. I look forward to starting my Gansey Style Afghan with Lena.
