Ever look at the knitted afghans and wish you knew how to knit so you could make one like that? Ms. Chin provides a crochet method that gives the look of knitting to crochet work. I don't even know where to start there are so many wonderful designs to choose from. Afghans, of course, then there are place mats, a stole and hat, a tea cozy, rugs, pillows, vests and jackets.

The stitches are simple but look complicated. They are "stretches" over rows below to create what Mr. Chin calls a long stitch. She uses long double crochet along with Front Post treble crochet and other regular crochet stitches to create wonderful looking pieces.

Each designs gives a list of materials needed to complete the item, gauge and finished size and an explanation of any special stitches used before the pattern itself begins. The patterns are written in a clear and understandable manner. A color photo of the design show what the finished item will look like. The colors chosen for the design are wonderful but, of course, you can change them to suit your décor.

There are five pages of general directions that show what each basic stitch looks like and how to create it. The charts included in this section are math conversion from metric to US numbers, crochet abbreviations and crochet hook sizes. In short, everything a crocheter will need to make Ms. Chin's designs. This 140+ page book will provide hours of crocheting fun and you will end up with a great gift or a beautiful addition to your own home.

When I buy a crochet book I often use only 1 pattern. I have made 4 afghans from this book and I'm almost finished with a 5th! There is one pattern (the one on the cover) that is used in 3 different afghans but they all look great - color combination I never thought would look good.

I consider myself at an intermediate level but this book has patterns that would be good for crocheters at all levels. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to crochet afghans!!!

This is a wonderful book for anyone who crochets and wants to do something different. The patterns are great, although if you can crochet as I have done for years, you can make up your own designs, turn the patterns around to cover other items and is so useful for Xmas gifts, or other special gifts for special people. I thought it would be complicated, but it is very easy, and Lily Chin describes everything so well. She has amazing projects and maybe a little time consuming but well worth it in the end.

I would recommend this book for anyone who loves to crochet and wants a challenge and come up with something original and very pleasing to the eye. I would rate it 10 out of 10

I originally purchased Lily Chin's DVD Mosaic Crochet, and fell in love with this method of crochet! The DVD is a perfect teaching tool, but I also needed a little more help in recreating some of the projects she showed in the DVD, so I purchased the book Mosaic Magic, which has all of the projects shown in the DVD. The DVD and the book go hand-in-hand! Lily is entertaining and packs a lot of information into a small space.

Lily Chin's Mosaic Magic (Leisure Arts #4229) Disappointing that although the book has detailed diagrams and description of basic crochet stitches, it does not include diagrams of the specialised techniques for using these stitches to create the mosaic articles. This was my reason for purchasing the book, hence I am left feeling cheated.

Was able to follow instructions. Made too many out of this book but unfortunately given most away as gifts & they loved them. Will definitely will be using again. What I liked about is once you set up the pattern you didnt really need the book after that. Goes really fast. However be aware that it does make a thicker blanket then a normal afghan.
