You will gain a Wealth of Knowledge on Pattern Design Too!

After seeing all the videos, I finally got to my computer to work through the process. It is absolutely amazing the knowledge Ms. Faina shares. I never thought to design the garment you could plan it all out from your sample swatch and then work through all the steps to get to the final result by a written plan. Then Knit it. Awww, so that's how it's done. I love this class because it is true application of the process you gain. Yes there are some serious calculations going on, however Ms ...

Thank you Faina!

I've taken a few classes here on Craftsy, but this one, I can honestly say, has impacted me in such a good way.

Faina is a wonderful instructor, she's incredibly good at explaining things that I never in a million years would have thought I would understand. For the first time in my life, I am getting excited about math! The biggest roadblock for me and getting my designs out of my head has been the math and the why and how behind it all. She explains everything beautifully. I ...
