I had a difficult time with the triple crochet. Not sure if the issue is because of my small hands. But overall thought it was a good class for beginner.

I have been crocheting a while, but this class showed me how to more accurately turn and reach down to straighten the edge. Reviews are helpful to check your own way of crocheting.
