GREAT CLASS
This is a GREAT CLASS. I love Patty Lyons and everyone of her classes I have of her. She is so thorough and explains things so clearly and love the video classes. You learn so much from her. I hope she makes many more videos. Thanks, Patty. Review by Linda (Posted on 8/10/2016)
Love this!
I have to share my bias up front. I am a great admirer of Patty Lyons. I find her teaching methods extraordinary. I happened to be working on my first color piece when I started watching her video. It was fabulous. You knit a swatch along with her so you have a reminder of what things look like. I learned many tips and tricks and more importantly I understand why it is done that way. The piece I am working on looks more professional than the first few rows before I saw the video.
Comment on the cowl pattern. Patty has included two patterns, tthe first does write out directions clearly in paragraph form to clarify or highlight those things she is teaching. There is a second copy written in normal pattern format. This is also not a lesson in knitting in the round...only trips participate particular to color surprisingly have as color jogging in the round and how to prevent that.

AMAZING tricks! - SOOOO worth it.
I had know idea how many tricks I could learn for stripes (the felted join color change was my all time FAVE!!). I have taken classes with Patty Lyons at Vogue Knitting and she is always amazing and gives so many extra tricks that you learn so much more than the topic at hand.

I love learning all these color techniques and can't wait to try them out in my own designs. I just cast on for the cowl and after that, I'm going to design my own hat and scarf set using every trick I learned. GREAT CLASS!!

good ideas, poor follow through
I found the tutorial on the sample swatch interesting and informative. Learned some interesting techniques, most particularly hiding the tails.
The follow up on dealing with issues in the round was rather rushed, especially the part about jogging stitches.
the written instructions on the cowl are a mess. There is no reason with an electronic publication to have all of the instructions run together in paragraph form. With a pattern this complicated, it is impossible to follow, and I had to retype them in order to clearly follow them. This is typical of your printed materials all the time, and one reason I am hesitant to purchase them.
Instructions for the Latvian braid the first time are incorrect. They say the second round is a repeat of the first, when the direction of the yarn must change.
to follow the tutorial, it might be helpful in the written instructions to remind us of how to jog the stitches with color change. I had to go back to the video tutorial a couple of times, which was really time consuming. AND, several of the color changes go from purl to knit, and this was not covered in the tutorial. Which method should you use?
