Dumb reason to make a video: you assume viewers know how to do Reverse and Knit on double ended hook because you skip all casting on and demonstration of each stitch. Then the videographer is useless because s/he doesn't realize s/he has to ZOOM IN CLOSE to the action in order for viewers to understand the stitches.  The editor is just as lame because she crochets along at her own speed just oblivious to the fact that to TEACH ANYTHING you have to explain and move in SLOW MOTION.  Her comment to refer to "the videos" on Crochet Me for further information is beyond useless, it is infuriating and insulting, the message being: "For all you suckers who can't do this with your eyes closed, you'll have to search all of www.crochetme.com in the hopes of finding the links that will provide useable information for learning tunisian stitching."

The most laughable part is your nerve in expecting people to pay you money for your patterns!  Keep it up!  Eventually a stand up comic will find your videos to be a great source of material for a hapless character.

This video is a total waste of time. Close ups are terrible and difficult to follow.

Forgive my ignorance but I couldn't find the video demonstrating the reverse stitch.  I found the one for the knit stitch with no problems.  Is the reverse stitch not up yet, better known as a different name, or am I looking in the wrong spot?  Please help.

Seriously, do you have to be so rude when you comment? Could you not just give constructive criticism without  being snarky? I am just learning tunisian, but I still found the video interesting. Yes, I may have to go learn a couple of things to be able to complete the stitches, but I am not too lazy to do that. If you really want to know how to do the stitch, perhaps buying the Crochet Winter issue would help. Your comments were meant to hurt, not help! Dhyatt

I thought the key feature of this pattern was that you had to reverse direction after crocheting half of the stitches, and crochet the loops off the back end of the hook. Unfortunately, this video doesn't demonstrate that at all. You can catch a brief glimpse of what happens if you already know what you are looking for at the very end of the video, and there is no explanation for it.

Very good video, thank you.  To the person that complained: do you also watch the 4th show of a series and complain that it doesn't explain who everyone is and how they relate to each other?  If you want to learn something you do have to start with learning the technique then watch videos like this that teach specific patterns.
