Video tutorial is very well done following along with Lena is very easy. Great instructor clear, concise and her wonderful personality comes through. Can't wait to buy yarn to get started on this project.

Fabulous pattern! The tutorial is paced just right and extremely helpful for the special stitches. I reached out to the instructor as to how to increase the width of the pattern, she was very helpful in laying out the changes needed to do so. I made this as a Christmas gift for my daughter of who is very precise in what she likes or not she said this was her most favorite thing I've ever made for her. Thank you Elena for you help! I will be making another one for myself!

As I've said before, Lena Skvagerson is a Superb teacher, with admirable enthusiasm and energy! The only one thing in this video is that, since the whole afghan is only one color, sometimes it is a little difficult to see exactly where you're at. Or perhaps it's just the lighting on my computer.

I have taken many classes from Lena and the quality of this one is just as perfect as all the others. Her speed is ideal for beginners as well as others wanting to learn new stitches. I highly recommend any of Lena's classes.

What a beautiful throw! I'm a visual learne and truly appreciate the video. I've caught myself a few times needing to rip out a few rows and re-do them. My only suggestion would be to have the video calibrated with markerstimestamp for each row for ease of finding where to pick up it back up again.
