Knitting from the Top Down with Wendy Bernard Review by Sylvie Bedard

I really enjoyed this workshop. The explanations were clear and after ending the workshop, I started to knit Ingenue and completed the project with no problems. I would recommend this workshop to anyone who has never tried knitting top down before.

Disappointing but still a good video with great patterns included Review by Rebecca Blakeney

I give this video 3.5 stars out of 5 (half a star wasn't an option for the rating icon).

A very good video for garment beginners Review by Frances Langum

If you have never knit a garment before (top down or not), this is a very good video. Wendy is a terrific designer. I found as an advanced knitter that I didn't really learn much from her video.

Easy to watch and learn - very enjoyable Review by Melissa Stanton

I bought this downloadable DVD yesterday on the sale - and started watching it immediately. For me, as it is an on-sale item, it is excellent value for money. I thoroughly enjoyed the straight forward gentle approach Wendy Bernard has. I always watch things with the "I have something to learn" approach and although I'm no stranger to top-down, there were many little things that just make "top-down" work more quickly or smoother or gave me some new insight or a other tool to my basket. There are some many more questions I'd like to ask Wendy, and I'm hoping she'll do another dvd on more tips and tricks to do with less seams and all in one constructions, and also how to avoid problems. Very enjoyable.
