    Hi Johnny..any chance of going a tad slower in your instruction videos and perhaps taking the swatch to about 3-4 rows so we can see it progressing? I have tried the Mile a Minute but it doesn’t look (yet) like the picture of your finished product because I get a bit muddled after the second row and am not sure what the beginning of the third, or fourth should be looking like.
    Thanks Johnny.

      Hi Pat! I’m not going to reshoot this video. I’m sorry you found it fast, but that’s why we do video, so you can pause it and rewatch as much as you need.

      As for taking the pattern past the repeats that are needed to complete it, it would take much longer to film and edit, so I don’t see that happening.
