I have found the course, so far, to be very informative. I haven’t accessed everything, but will in time. It has opened up more possibilities with DAK, and with all the Knit It Now courses/videos it is presented in accessible chunks, rather than rambling , which some online courses do. I have already recommended it to a friend.
Did the course meet your expectations? Yes very much
Would you recommend? Yes and I already did
What did you like best? Everything and the videos are so good.
The course is going well. There is so much to learn I'm taking it slow. I really want to design a yoke fairisle so I'm doing all the lessons along with the tutorials. thanks so much for these courses.
The original pattern drafting course exceeded my expectations in so many ways. I have learnt so much and my confidence has grown in leaps and bounds. I no longer rely on books or magazines for patterns I use DAK to create my own shapes to get a perfect fit. I loved the short videos that took me step by step through the techniques that I had struggled with if i didn't understand at first it was easy to rewind and watch again or pause the video while I tried the technique for myself. I would recommend the course to anyone that wants to get the most out of DAK. I'm already thinking about which course to do next ... Stitch designer is definitely on my wish list
I have been using Dak for several years now and was fortunate enough to be able to learn from Helen Koshak at Newtons Yarn Country. In spite of my experience and work with Helen your Stitch Designer 201 was where I went to help create a two color slip pattern that would download to my SK840. Your instructions were clear and helped me understand why I needed a certain setting. Often the "why" is as, or more, important than the "what". Thank you both.
I have been doing things the hard way in DAK for a few years now. This course was an eye opener and I learned so much, the course exceeded my expectations. The best part was learning about all the cut and sew options for color knitting. I now have a new knowledge that will save me hours of fiddling about on top of providing me so many more options to fully use the program. Thank you!
I am so very happy about what I learned taking this course. If I learned nothing else but how to put darts into my garment construction and take advantage of short row I would have been happy but I learned so many valuable lessons to apply to my upcoming garments that I have been designing like crazy since completing the class. I highly recommend having your DAK open and doing every step along with the class versus just watching. Worth every penny.
I have been working my way through DAK Stitch Designer 101. I've been using DAK for many years but never took the time to use it well. The course is so complete. I imagine the information is available somewhere on the Soft Byte website, but you have made it so accessible. Thank you for the time you put into this.
