Not Satisfied
I thought this video would go in to a lot more detail. Maybe I'm more experienced than I thought but I found it just a lot of fluff. Also, the pattern calls for a M1 but in the video Knit Front and Back is used. I think there is a difference between these two increases. Review by Michelene (Posted on 2/9/2015)
it is not what I expected because I thought it was a step by step and not a simple explanation of a pattern. Review by Heidy (Posted on 8/19/2014)

Knitting from the Top Down with Wendy Bernard
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. Review by Sylvie Bedard (Posted on 11/11/2011)
Disappointing but still a good video with great patterns included
I give this video 3.5 stars out of 5 (half a star wasn't an option for the rating icon). Review by Rebecca Blakeney (Posted on 7/10/2011)
A very good video for garment beginners
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. Review by Frances Langum (Posted on 5/10/2011)
Easy to watch and learn - very enjoyable
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. Review by Melissa Stanton (Posted on 4/19/2011)
