This book of crochet afghans contains four patterns: Dragonflies, ladybugs, bumblebees, and butterflies. Three of the afghans are made up of two different sized granny squares, ten each, arranged in different designs and crocheted to join. The butterflies are all the same size, six squares with different colors. They are labeled as intermediate skill level which I think is a fair rating. I think somebody who is more of a beginner but with the patience to sit and work at it may do just fine. The materials listed in the patterns are by weight and color but not specific yarn brand or type. The specific yarns they used are listed in the back of the book if you want the exact same look. I like that because I feel like I have more freedom to tweak the colors to my needs.

I want to make the dragonflies afghan to go in my living room, which is kind of a beach/nautical theme. I will update my review when I finish the afghan (after we move) for ease and correctness.

Update: Now that I am actually making the dragonfly afghan instead of going over the directions and fiddling with the stitches, I have a little bit different of an opinion. First, just as a note and not a complaint, it seems one of the yarns (Red Heart #363 Pale Green) is no longer being made. I found Caron #0587 Pale Green looks nice with the design. Not a problem, just an observation. Second, as I began working on this I was not happy with the clarity of the directions. They just seemed to be lumped together and I found it easier to follow if I quickly typed it out. Again, just an observation, but I have followed many patterns written more clearly than these. Third, and most important, while I found the directions to be correct, the stitch totals at the end of some of the rounds seem to be wrong.

I first saw this book on line from another company for much more money. I have a habit of checking Amazon's prices and availability whenever I see something I want. This one paid off. Great price. I am gathering my supplies to crochet the dragonfly afghan at this time. I will let you know if the instructions are easy to follow.
