Featuring stitch patterns and blocks, this book contains ideas to thrill any crochet lover. 40 afghan designs have clear instructions, both written and as charts with skill level guidance and good photos. 12 edgings mean you can mix and match. The colourful designs are given in three sizes with the amounts of yarn needed. A technique section brushes up your crochet skills and there's advice on colour combinations too. A superb crochet book for all crocheters and newcomers to the world of crochet will find a reason, or 40 or so to begin with. Enough inspiration to get you hooked. * * Beautiful blankets, especially handmade, crochet ones should be available on the NHS as I think they make everyone feel better! With blanket projects on my mind, I have had my eye on this book for some time. I own a couple of Leonie's other books, namely 100 colourful ripple stitches and 75 colourful Hexagons to crochet. Therefore I know she writes clear, concise instructions with good pattern notes. The reason I wanted this book may surprise you. It wasn't for the blankets or the throws. I couldn't wait for this book to be published, because of the stunningly original edging patterns! They are unique, truly inspiring and just what I have been searching for. Last year I completed a very pretty 'corner-to-corner' blanket that desperately needed an unusual but simple edging. It has been languishing in my 'work in progress' pile for the last few months Nothing had caught my eye, until this book came out. I am spending my coffee breaks today pondering colours and yarn. There are 40 block and stitch patterns in this book. If you think about it, that works out at a bargain 28p per pattern (I consulted my calculator) Of course I love all of these too; the patterns are bright and cheerful, perfect for your future summer projects. The patterns are suitable for beginners and more experienced hookers too. At the back of the book there is a very handy, quick reference and measurements guide. It gives the number or blocks of rows and also the yarn quantities and colours. There is of course the usual stitch guide and illustrations for beginners. My favourite blanket pattern is this one... I am rather enamoured with the Neon frills blanket on page 28. The frills use surface crochet, which is something I have been using and enjoying recently. It makes a flat project become alive with texture... I can highly recommend this book to you all! * Lazy Daisy Jones * This is my second book by Leonie Morgan, and I am not disappointed! From the cover and throughout, this book is a riot of colour with beautifully detailed photographs and illustrations. There is so much to make from this book too - it really does have everything you could wish for - including decorative stitches, blocks, granny squares and stripes! At the back of the book is a size guide, taking the guesswork out of resizing each project to suit your requirements! Another plus point for this book is a whole section on edgings, so you can give your afghan blanket a unique edging - rather than following a set pattern. As for the patterns themselves, each pattern is written clearly with the addition of a chart for those who prefer to read their patterns this way. Additionally, each pattern is graded in difficulty, and there is a large section on techniques and stitches, making it extremely suitable for complete beginners through to those with more experience. I love this book, which is extremely well written and allows you to get in touch with your creative side at the same time. Well done Leonie - another excellent crochet book for my collection -- Cathy Sommer * Customer Review * I was really looking forward to getting my copy of this book and now that it is here I am not disappointed. For someone who is only just learning to get past the basics in crochet this book i
