Not only did it come out HUGE, it was full of dropped stitches as my stitches kept falling off both ends of the needles!

When You Watch Videos Designed for Your Success, Learning is Inevitable and Fun

Many knitting videos, even professional ones, are long, rambly, and take forever to get to the point.

KnitFreedom videos start you off learning straight away and fill in the extra details as you go.
Other videos are shown far away, with distracting details, or simply don’t show you close-up what you need to see.

KnitFreedom videos are so close-up and in-focus that you can see each stitch and are left with no doubt as to what you need to do.
Teachers’ voices can be irritating and distracting, which is frustrating if you need to watch videos many times to remind yourself of a technique.

Liat’s voice is calm and encouraging, with simple instructions, a fun approach to making and fixing mistakes, and no extra chit-chat.

–Clear, concise explanations
–Exquisite close-up photography
–Bite-sized sequences that optimize learning . . .
all provided in an easy, encouraging style.

Way to go!
