Very challenging, worth every stitch!

I saw a photo of this cardigan and just had to buy the class and materials. This is not for someone new to crochet. That said, if you've mastered single and double crochet and you can count, then you can complete this cardigan. It was a serious challenge, but worth it. This is not mindless, sitting in front of the TV crochet.

Very happy with the class, and already signed up for the instructor's Tunisian crochet class too. Also, first time I was introduced to extended and foundation crochet stitches, that was cool enough I looked up the Craftsy class on foundation stitches.

Rebel Cardi

Jennifer is one of the best instructors I have ever seen. She is helpful, expressive and gives you options to try for your work. I really loved her and am still enjoying the class. I am almost finished with my cardi.

Lots of new things to learn!

I'm not a big crochet enthusiast, but I could become one with this instructor leading the way. I learned a lot of new techniques for crochet in general as well as for broomstick lace.

This is my second class with this instructor. She is always clear in her instructions and makes learning a new technique fairly painless!
