Fabulous Class Well Worth Taking

I have been knitting my entire life and do a lot of designing. Although this class was pretty basic I have actually recommended it to friends that are new to knitting. I also got some new perspectives on things I have always done. The information on writing your own patterns and the templates to actually do so are invaluable.
The amount of information she has gifted to her students is truly amazing. I would gladly take more of her courses.

Makes It Feel Do-able

This tutorial is thorough and really goes into detail about how one thinks through the different components of design. If you are a beginner, go to a basic resource and review the terms of basic knitting before starting this. I feel that she explains things clearly and has a pleasant voice and presentation. I am getting so excited just watching this!

I loved this class. I have been playing around with changing patterns to fit what I want for awhile now. But now I have more of an understanding on pattern design. Thank you so much for all the tips and tricks. Just finished my first design today and excited to get started on the next design!!

Love this class

I agree with the positive reviewers who have come before me. I am so impressed with Laura's teaching style and the comprehensive "cowl curriculum" she has presented in this class. I have learned so much that is applicable to cowl knitting and other projects as well. I look forward to taking more of Laura's classes

Just What I Was Looking For

I love Laura's teaching style as demonstrated in the other classes I've purchased. I love cowls and believe this class will expand my repertoire of designs. Recommend it heartily.
