Terrific class even for an experienced knitter. I learned so many new techniques. The instructor was excellent and went at a good pace. I loved all the little extras for knitted animals. I had just made a squirrel knitted on double pointed needles with short rows that didn't need seaming. I wanted to try this technique of amigurumi knitting flat and seaming. It was definitely easier on my hands. I also appreciated the tips for tying ends, embroidering the face, attaching the limbs. Really well designed and thought out. Instead of Billy Bunny I made for my granddaughter a green Bettina Ballerina Bunny with a tutu and ballet slippers. I took the pattern for the kitty's sundress and turned it into a tutu. Adorable!!
I will definitely be making more of the little forest friends. Would love to send you a photo if you let me know where I can do that. Thanks!

This is a wonderful class to learn Amigurumi. The video is high quality and being able to look at the pattern and watch the video for technique is a Godsend for those of us who may need that little extra help. The instructor is easy to follow and understand. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to learn to make these charming animal toys!

Thank you for making a knitting class for amigurumi. I liked how each piece was knitted flat, forcing me to work on my seaming! I also learned how to embroider, as that isn't something I ever did before. Wonderful instructions and I really liked how much detail was given for every step.
