I am a pretty experienced crocheter. I was interested in the rainbow and daisy afghans in this book. While planning ahead for my projects I was frustrated that the pictures were misleading and the directions somewhat incomplete. Working with a poor picture of the rainbow afghan (I've never seen a folded picture for a project) the directions suggest 6 colors, the picture appears to have at least eleven. Apparently there is no border around the whole afghan, again you could see this if it were displayed properly. I moved on to the daisy afghan as my second choice. Again, the picture shows smaller squares around the outside with something larger in the center. There were no instructions to this effect with instructions that seemed to suggest the whole project is made up of smaller squares. I don't understand the the lack of complete pictures. Not what I would recommend for a beginning crocheter. I'll be returning mine.
I wish I had been able to see the pictures of the afghan patterns in the book...it has several patterns that I already have, but since you didn't include pictures in the sample I got, I just had to buy it, then be a little dissapointed.
Gave it a 5 star because of the projects and easy to read instructions.I would recommend this to all my crochet friends. also love the color selections. I taught crochet for years and color selection always seemed to be a problem for new crocheters.Thank you looking forward to getting started.
whether you are a beginner, need a refresher, or a seasoned master crocheter, this book is wonderful. It fully explains step by step on how to do each project. The projects are easy and work up beautifully. highly recommend for all crochet enthusiasts. looking for more from this author
These Afghan's are very nice and easy to do. So nice to find pretty Afghan patterns that you can actually do in one day. Anyone would love to receive a wonderful gift like this.
simply,easy, and I don't have to concentrate to hard. I really enjoy trying out these patterns just to simplify my life with easier things but still look good when finished.
This book has several very pretty afghans pictured in it, but if you try to make them you quickly realize they don't make the afghan pictured. Example the checkerboard afghan she has you make a square using all treble crochets in different colors, but the picture shows the blue square has a diamond bobble pattern, and different textures on the other colors. The rainbow afghan she says use 6 colors and the pic shows way more than that. The baby afghan #2 she has you make one big single crochet blanket but the picture shows two different textured blocks arranged in a 3 by 4 rectangle. The patterns are vague at best saying use approx so many ounces and she says repeat this pattern until you have as many rows as you want not allowing for the fact that the two rows end slightly differently. I'm not a beginner crocheter but if I have to figure out how to make the afghan from the one picture there is no point in the book. :( I really wanted the instructions for the textured afghans as well as to know what colors were used in each project. None of that was available.
Bought this for my wife who loves to crochet and has been doing so for forty plus years. She said this was the first truly easy book of crochet she had ever seen. She also felt this book would not be overwhelming for new/beginner crocheters.
