What a great class!. I watched the entire video and never once got bored and drifted off. Ms Lena is a good instructor who knows how to pace the lesson, not too slow or too fast. I plan to make this afghan sometime this year, after I finish at least one of the projects I am currently working on. I am sure I will refer back to the tutorial several times as I progress. Keep up the good work.

I have been crocheting for more than 50 years, always working with just basic stitches. I have always wanted to make a more challenging Afghan. So thankful for these classes. So well done, easy to follow and to "see" clearly how to work the pattern. I look forward to more projects to watch and learn!

What a great tutorial! I made mine in Aquarium Blue and used bulky 50%cotton/50% acrylic. It looks fantastic. The video was very easy to follow and I learned quite a lot. Please do other tutorials!!

When I got stuck on Row 3 in the pattern, I knew I needed a tutorial of some kind. I never could have hoped for someone as encouraging and positive as Lena! The quality of instruction and video is exceptional, and her pacing is spot on. I like her precision and the way she refers to the afghan itself as she's instructing. I am grateful to be on Row 4 and glad to have Lena to return to as needed.

I'm really enjoying learning the new techniques.
I hope to use this new knowledge to design what's in my head. I love the look of so many of the "textured" shawls but I prefer a rectangle over a triangle.
So, someday you may see a wrap designed by me.
