Great Video but DOWNLOAD ONLY plays on your pc/laptop Review by Norma

The crochet video I purchased before with Cristin Omdal I was able to put on a dvd and use either on pc or dvd player. This thing only works on a pc. You should tell people that's all they get .

Otherwise, I would have at least given a 4 .

Not what I expected Review by Mark
Rating

I'm a reasonably new knitter, whilst I'm comfortable with throwing, the continental style has felt very awkward to me every time I attempt it.

The style was nice and felt very comfortable. However I found it quite difficult to follow. Maybe I'm too new to knitting, or I'm expecting too much, but I found it fairly confusing. The camera angles weren't always great for seeing the detail so the instructions and visuals didn't always seem to match up. I found myself holding the yarn and needles in the same way described, yet the movement looks nothing like the video.

Again, maybe I was expecting too much, but for a workshop to teach continental style knitting, I did expect more time spent to continental knitting. The run time is 1 hour 17 minutes, but the basic continental tutorial is only about 24 minutes and a chunk of that was casting on. After that it moves to stripes, picking up dropped stitches, increases, decreases etc none of which were specific to continental knitting.

Even while watching the video I ended up referring to Youtube videos to try and clarify what I should be doing, which does defeat the point of a workshop video.

After 40+ years knitting English style I am now a Continental devotee. Review by Fiona
Rating

Having tried and abandoned Continental style knitting several times before because of the awkwardness of the purl stitch, I only bought this tutorial because it was on special and I wanted to give the method one last try. Biggan demonstrates her easy and quick method of creating a purl stitch which is done without moving the left forefinger at all. Seed stitch and ribbing are so quick and easy to do now. Having knitted English style for over 40 years it does take some getting used to, but after just a week it is already starting to feel familiar and it's getting quicker by the day. I I won't be returning to the English method.
