I received my copy yesterday. The photos are wonderful. The patterns seem well written. Variety of techniques are covered. I am looking forward to starting one of the projects today... just need to figure out which one... they are all so beautiful.
I am always looking for new crochet ideas and this book has a lot of patterns that are very interesting.
I am looking forward to trying some of the afghans and techniques (especially those which are new to me) It is enjoyable to read the story behind each afghan and the creator's views about crocheting them. Many beautiful colors and designs - explanations of techniques look to be detailed - can't wait to have time to try one.
Unnecessary to ever purchase another afghan crochet book. This book exceeds all expectations.
It was a bit disappointing for me as the patterns were uninspired, not creative at all. I taught crochet for many years (beginners to Master level), and I can honestly say that most of the afghans patterns I designed were by far more creative and beautiful (I have the blue ribbons to prove it). I don't think I feel this way because I'm 'jaded' from of my level of expertise, I don't know what else to say other than to pass this one by. Unless you see it at a yardsale for cheap... I will look for some other book to replace this. Goodluck!
