Good Stuff
I am a returning crocheter and found the video helpful especially with the ones dealing with starting chains. Review by AELC (Posted on 9/10/2017)
Just okay...
I'm surprised at all the reviews from "long time crocheters" saying they picked up so many tips. I'm relatively new to crochet but found very little in here that I didn't already know just from Google'ing and YouTube. I've taken some other classes (both from Interweave and Craftsy) by other instructors and always felt like I got something, even if not a lot, out of them. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for this class. This is the first time I've paid for a class and ended up feeling like it was a waste of money. I purchased it about a month ago but only had time to sit and watch it this past weekend. Which is too bad because if I'd watched it right away, I would have been on the phone pronto to Interweave about a refund or at least possible credit towards a different class. Oh well...

Well worth the money
I can't believe I have crocheted for over 65 years and I still was amazed at the many tips included in this video to make crocheting easier than ever. I wish I had known about this years ago. Review by Lois (Posted on 7/8/2016)
I've purchased other Lily Chin videos, so I was certain that this one would be informative even for a long-time crocheter like myself, and I was not wrong. In this video she delivers so many techniques in a most entertaining way! Great video! Review by Mary (Posted on 12/19/2015)
Love It
Very instructive. I love Lily's presentation style. As a self taught crocheter for 6 years I still consider myself as a beginner/intermediate. I'm confident this video will bring me up to an intermediate/experienced level. Review by Mary (Posted on 12/18/2015)
This is great!
I love this class. I have been crocheting for many years, and I still picked up many new techniques. I find myself returning to this video again and again. Lily Chin is a great teacher, I'm so glad I purchased this video.

There is a table of contents!
This is an edit to my original review...Just read a review of Lily Chin's Knitting DVD and the reviewer mentioned that there is a table of contents in the timeline, but you need to click it with the mouse. I checked this download and, sure enough, the table of contents is there. I just missed it the first time. Duh! Looks like I could use a DVD on computer usage! Review by Marilyn (Posted on 10/17/2014)
Fun to watch!
This is a great reference for crocheters and fun to watch! Lily Chin is an excellent teacher. Even though she can crochet at the "speed of light", she slows it down so you can see every stitch. She explains everything very clearly and with a humorous style. I have been crocheting for many years, but I still learned a lot from this download. I agree with the other reviewer about finding things on the video. It's a good idea to make notes about where things are located on the video. I'm also glad to have purchased this video! Review by Marilyn (Posted on 10/17/2014)
Love it!
I will turn to this again and again for Lily Chin's many helpful tips and tricks for savvy crocheting. Since this isn't a dvd, but a video download, there isn't a menu with chapters to help you remember where everything is on the video. As I watched it, I wrote down each subject and at what time to find it in the download. I'm really glad I purchased this-it is well worth it! Review by Laurel (Posted on 4/29/2014)
