What's better, is the yarns chosen for the models and written in the patterns are readily available in most craft stores (Micheal's, JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby) and even Wal-Mart. Some of the yarns called for are Red Heart Super Saver, Red Heart Soft, Caron Simply Soft, Lion Brand Homespun, Lion Brand Romance, Lion Brand Wool-Ease, Patons Shetland Chunky, Patons Classic Marino Wool, Plymouth Encore, TLC Essentials, TLC Amore, Bernat Satin, and Bernat Softee Baby, among others. You would never guess buy looking at the pictures that such affordable and common yarns are used. I was so happy to learn, when flipping through the book for the first time, that I could actually find and afford the yarn called for.
If you choose to buy this book, you will NOT be disappointed. There's truly something here for everyone. If you're like me and are lucky to see a hand full of patterns in one crochet book that you'll actually make, you'll be surprised--no, shocked--at how many of these afghans you'll want to make (at least 3/4 of them, if not more!).
When beginning a new project, I tend to go online and look for something different. My books seem to consist of rehashed similar patterns. While classic, the adventurous side of me likes to take on something completely new. I was drawn to the pattern on the front of the book.
This book takes many classic patterns and updates them in unique and amazing ways. When I received it, I was excited to see the various color combinations and different stitch combinations. With gorgeous patterns ranging from easy to experienced, there's something in here for everyone on your gift giving list. There are four categories: Classics Updated; I'll Take Romance; Big Hook, Big Style; and Cuddle-Up Cuties. There really is something in here for everyone.
My hope was to find patterns to use to clear out my overflowing stash of yarn, and this book will make that happen for me this year. It's been a long time since I've been excited about an afghan pattern book, and this one delivers beyond.

Lots of great patterns in this one! I've made a few of them (though I changed the color schemes on all of them to give them what I perceive to be an updated look) and have received... Read morePublished 4 months ago by Sarah
This book is amazing, so many pretty project to make!! Only thing is that it is hard to hold open, it needs to be spiral bound, as do all project books; in my opinion.Published 6 months ago by Wanda Kruise
