    Great video! Beautiful pattern. Wish the camera would zoom in more on her hands when doing the stitch work. I adore Vickie Howell. She is a great teacher. Cannot wait to see more of her videos in the future. I can't wait to make my cardigan!

    This is a great project. It gives me confidence that I can do this. She is a very good teacher and easy to follow along with.
