WONDERFUL!!!!! Review by Jennifer

I love this video. I did the instant download. Be aware that the download video is 1GB and may take a while to download!

The video explains some history of Irish Crochet and shows some pieces that at a few hundred years old. I was really happy to find this, because most of the free information or instructions on the internet was in Russian or another language, which didn't help me. This was all in English, but remember that the instructor has a thick accent, so some of her words are a little difficult to understand, unless you are Irish.

I also love the mask pattern that comes with this video. You can do a lot with the little pieces in the pattern. Personally, I am making a couple of shawls for "the mother-in-laws" (my mom and his mom) for our wedding out of these little motifs. Basically, if you didn't understand the video completely, the mask pattern will clarify what she was doing and you can make whatever you want

One thing that was confusing for me was that the instruct would use different terms at different times. An example would be when she would say "single crochet, or double" and then would just refer to the single as a double and then refer to it as just a single. She did this to try to make it use friendly for UK notation and US notation, but it got me confused a few times because it was inconsistent.

Also, it was hard for me to understand for a while, but she says, "padding cord" to refer to the string you work over in some of the pieces. In the pattern, this is referred to as "pc."

Overall, this is a great product and was very helpful! I am VERY excited to be making my wedding dress based on the techniques from this video. These motifs looks great using Red Heart Bamboo Crochet Thread.

Good luck with your Irish crochet projects! This video and pattern will take you far in your project goals!
