Best Technique Class On Craftsy

Marly deserves an award for her class. It well presented, makes sense and her PDF charts are second to none. I've learnt so much from this class, and will repeat watch it as necessary as I work on my own sweaters.
Well Done Marly!
(Note to Craftsy - I'm sure Marly has more to teach us, when are you adding another class from her!)

Love this Class!!

Marly is a great instructor and she gives you so much information!! I'm not plus size but everything she presents in this class is useful for sweater fitting for all sizes, after all we all have different shapes and trouble spots right?
I have watched the class once and plan on watching it again all the way through to absorb more information and then will work on my own sweater design!!

Very impressed!

The bubbly personality of the instructor, Marly Bird, is definitely the key to the success of this class. There is an absolute truckload of information on offer, all very well explained. I loved every minute of it and now feel very confident to tackle making garments for myself. Thanks, Marly.

I'm going to have a go at the Curvy Crochet class next as I think that will be just as good!

Great workshop

Marly covers a lot of information in a way that makes it very usable for knitters of different skill levels. The sleeve cap adjustments were really helpful. Thanks!
