Excellent but 1 tiny mistake Review by Marjorie
Rating

I love how Doris takes the viewer through the process from very beginning to end, with all the little details along the way. I am just barely past a beginner and this is working well. Unfortunately there's a mistake in the written pattern, in the VERY First stitch after the foundation chain. She instructs correctly in the video, but I missed it in the beginning and only caught the difference well into the project, then looked it up on Ravelry. Alas, lots of frogging for me. So if you make this, please note: a 'fan' has only ch-1 spaces, not ch-2 spaces as written. (Seems like a digital product could easily be corrected... it's not like it's permanently printed in a book or something) Other than that I'm very pleased with this.

Great explanations Review by Jan
Rating

I have made quite a few Doris Chan garments and have all of her books but I found this DVD very helpful in helping me understand fully exactly what is meant on some of her patterns. Previously I had muddled my way through and after watching this DVD I now feel more confident about the yoke shapings and increases. I would recommend this DVD as makes sense of the great designs in Doris Chan's books that might otherwise have been confusing for someone who has not used her patterns before.

Not a download Review by BMiller

This is not a download, it is a streaming video. There is no download option available, only viewing. It is misleading to call it a download.

Content is fantastic though. Doris Chan is amazing.

Not For The Beginner, However.... Review by Linda

I bought this Doris Chan video several weeks ago and I'm part way thru it. This is definitely not beginner stuff and I'm one rung up from beginner. I am doing it though with the help of a friend who knows a little something. I think if I can get thru this I'll be in intermediate country.
Lots of great tips and I love her presentation. However, since there are many sizes you have to rely on your pattern to get it right. Doris leads you up to the point where the pattern changes because of different sizes and then it's up to you to figure out the pattern (which we did). Then Doris starts you off on the next round, and so on. It does get easier as you go along. If you like a challenge, this is it!
Like I said, I haven't finished yet, but that's my take so far. I'll write more when I finish.
