Pricey, but absolutely worth it
This might be the most useful investment I made in a long while, when it comes to improving my knitting. I had one light-bulb moment after the other. If you're on a budget and have to decide what course or book to buy - this is the one you don't want to miss out on.
Patty is a great teacher, and her approach to teach the 'why' before the 'how' helps you understanding the problem and therefore remembering the solution.

One point of criticism I'd like to add. I would wish for a possibility to add my personal notes and bookmarks to the class, since I'd like to come back and rewatch the solution to specific problems.

Wonderful
Very interesting, a lot of tricks and easy to understand.
I'm Italian but I haven't got any problem to understand it.

Absolutely perfect lesson
Patty is a terrific teacher and those lessons (part1 and part2) are absolutely perfect. I hope that Patty will continue producing videos as she is too far away from me to attend her classes.
I've learned so many things and first time I've learned the "why" things happen while knitting.
The way she explains every step is clear to understand even if you are a foreigner (which I am) and English is not my native language.
(Originaly coming from Greece and knitting as well as crochet has a very old tradition).
Many many thanks to Patty and thanks to interweave store for selling.
Please Patty continue your great work. Wishing you all the best!

A very good Video
I totally agree with Pat's comment here below.
Very good content but I would have appreciated to have some kind of index or chapters in the video...
Thanks to the author!
I'm not an english speaker but she is so clear that I've understood everything without any problem.

Great Video
This is a great video with tons of information. My only complaint is that there is no menu and no way to get to different sections. I wish Interweave would follow the Craftsy method. Their videos are so much easier to refer back to. Review by Micky (Posted on 7/22/2015)
Love Patty, but not the Interweave format
Patty is fab, clear and fun. Her tips are amazing.

But I am used to the Craftsy format ie sections, an index, and best of all, no freezing or drawn out buffering.
You have to remember or guess where the different tricks are on the video, and the freezing is continual. I regularly watch online videos, and it is only this site that has these problems.

I will put up with it for Patty, but have no interest in the other classe. ,they are pricey too

Nobel Prize Knitting
I have to add my RAVE in favor of this spectacular set of knitting tips and tricks - nobody covers this material like Patty. Elizabeth Zimmermann, make room, because Patty's style of teaching, with humor, insight, TOTAL CLARITY and immediate utility makes these second to none. I wrote to Patty in thanks and I called her a "knitting scientist" which I know has a scary sound to many who are uneasy with math. So let me just say that these videos are NOT about math and theory. They are about illuminating what your hands need to do when you have yarn and needles in them, to end up with a far more magnificent result than you ever knew was possible, AND understanding HOW and WHY you were able to get it! Bravo, Patty, bravo! I can't wait to watch your future videos! Review by Andrea (Posted on 5/19/2015)
Really worth the price
Even after 30 years of knitting I learned some new and helpful tricks.

Especially her approach of considering "why" something happens before thinking "how" to fix it is extremely helpful to understand your knitting.

Everything she does is very clearly shown and easy to follow.

Besides that I love her speech - it's very clear and understandable even for not native speakers like me (I'm german).
Review by Tichiro (Posted on 4/26/2015)
The "why" makes the "how" so much easier!
Patty Lyons makes knitting less stressful. Her examples make learning easy. Her tricks and tips are useful no matter what project you're working on, because she so clearly explains the "why" of what you're doing, which often translates into other areas.

I love her videos.
Review by joanne (Posted on 3/28/2015)
totally worth it!
I am really enjoying this course. i have been knitting for many years now, my grandma taught me when I was 8 yo (now I am 41), and I have produce some nice sweaters, blankets, etc. However I always got some "misshaping" on my knittings... a hole near the neckline, a not so stretchy rim, etc. This class is teaching me amazing tips, from the very beginning on how to cast on in certain way.
Patty is very clear in her explanations, I like her approach on why some technique works, in understanding how the yarn works in certain way. Really an eye opener !

I had a baby recently, so I am pretty busy, not freely to follow the videos all at once, but the possibility of downloading them let me go back and forth to them whenever I have the chance.
I am sooo glad I found these videos. Thanks Patty, and please, bring some more in the future.

Patty Lyons NEVER Disappoints!
I can honestly say that Patty Lyons, more than any other source, has taught me the most and best tricks, techniques and really given me the confidence to continue to learn, to try new things and to continually become a better, happier knitter! From the first Craftsy class I took, "Improve Your Knitting", I have just loved her! She not only teaches how to do something, but why. That makes all the difference in any subject. If you know why you are doing something, not just the result, you will remember it.
I would recommend this to anyone who knits, no matter how skilled or unskilled, because you will learn new tricks, you will remember them and you will have a great time doing it.
Buy this! You will not regret it.

excellent video workshop
Patty is always an excellent teacher. Every time I see her name attached to a video presentation, I immediately purchase the product with assurance that it will be top notch and informative. Thanks for continuing to produce her teaching videos. Review by Robert (Posted on 3/13/2015)
Terrific
This is definitely worth the money. I've been knitting for close to 60 years (did I just say that) and I picked up helpful tips in the first 15 minutes. Haven't even gotten to the end of volume 1 yet. Can't wait to see what else I learn. She is a terrific teacher. Review by CathyP (Posted on 3/3/2015)
Very practical, helpful tips
From cast on to bind off, Patty Lyons provides great advice for making every knitted piece look its best. I've already referred to this video multiple times. Patty explains the whys and hows of each technique clearly and demonstrates them a few times to ensure that the viewer understands. I also appreciate that Patty was responsive in correcting a big omission, the missing pages of the worksheet.

My only suggestion would be that a menu accompanies the download so that different sections can be accessed more readily. But otherwise, I highly recommend this course.
Review by Susan (Posted on 3/1/2015)
Excellent! Intelligent! Well presented!
I consider myself to be an intermediate to advanced knitter and am an avid consumer of knitting technique books and videos so was hesitant to buy this video as it might be a rehash of tips I've learned elsewhere. This was not the case at all!

Patty Lyons is a phenomenal teacher with a great presentation style. I love her approach of teaching you not only "how" to do techniques but also clearly explaining the "why". I find it so much easier to remember how to do something if I have an understanding of the mechanics behind. I learned many new tips and tricks and gained a deeper understanding of the structure of my knitting. I highly recommend this video for anyone interested in taking their knitting one step beyond.....

Amended Review: Fantastic!!
Love, love. love the ideas --I'm learning a lot, and I am a knitting teacher. I had complained about the pdfs, but then I happened to contact Patty herself, who IMMEDIATELY got things fixed at Interweave and she also sent me the pdfs herself. Can't wait to someday take a class from her in person. Review by Nancy (Posted on 2/26/2015)
Excellent content and delivery
Patty provides classes with excellent content and precise delivery. I like her style of teaching - very detailed and understandable. I like her analogies and examples. I find her explanations broaden my level of understanding - her approach is not just "do this", or "I'll show you" but adding the WHY helps me understand techniques. I recommend this class. I believe the omission of materials at the beginning was corrected by Interweave and not a problem of the instructor. All fixed now. Review by Lois (Posted on 2/26/2015)
Amended review
After a delay I was sent the missing chart.

Patty Lyons really is a wonderful teacher and the material in this video is invaluable. Whether you are a novice or an expert you will certainly learn many things that will make your knitting more enjoyable and more professional looking. And you will understand your knitting better.
