I especially liked the video where she showed how to work only from the front of the design so the design had a definite front and back. I'm not sure I could crochet from left to right using my left hand though! I am so NOT ambidextrous!

Anyway, if anyone out there makes anything using this technique, please post a picture here so we can see it. I'd love to learn more about it.

HI there...Yep, that's what "intrigues" me..the only"work'' is on the front...I could never manage that!!!! Thank you, I will keep looking back here...
