Great book for beginners and advanced crocheters!
Pamela Fikter
Any of these you can use to make scarves, or choose one pattern for an entire blanket, if you're clever, you can adapt these to a sweater.

The instructions and illustrations are very easy to follow.

This book taught me my first crochet patterns; ALL 63! My first Afghan came out exactly like the one on the cover and I have learned to incorporate the stitches I've learned into other self designed afghans. I have used these wonderful patterns so much that my book is torn apart, pages lost, stained, and you name it. I am buying a new one which I WILL enclose in sheet protectors! I have made many beautiful things and this book is responsible for all of them. I had never crocheted before this. A whole new world has been opened up for me. THANK YOU DARLA SIMS.

I agree with others--this is a great book. Yes, there are clear instructions on how to make each stitch. Yes, there are clear instructions on how to assemble the squares for the afghan. But here is one aspect of the book that I really treasure: the author gives you instructions on "multiples" for many of the more complicated stitches. What are multiples? Let's say you want to take that new stitch you learned and use it on something else. Once you decide the general dimensions of your new project and you establish your gauge, you can take the multiple of that stitch to know how long to make the beginning chain. The author uses the example of the Alternate Puff Stich. That has a multiple of 4 + 2 chains. So the beginning chain needs to be any number divisible by 4 plus an additional 2 chains. It could be 14 chains (which is 12 + 2) or 90 chains (which is 88 + 2,) or whatever.
Money is tight right now, so I am careful about which books I buy. This one is valuable enough that I will order another to replace my damaged copy.

This is an excellent book for anyone who wishes to learn how to crochet. It is very well explained with a profusion of pictures and diagrams. While it covers the most basic stitches it also takes in quite complex designs as bobbles, clusters and cable stitches. Anyone who actually make the Afgan would become a most proficient crocheter.

Format: Paperback
This is a great pattern booklet. A wide variety of stitch patterns. Everything from beginner (which I am) to advanced. They give complete instructions on how to do SC,HDC,DC,TR,the differnt post sts, clusters,popcorn and puff st. The most important thing for me, which is why I bought it, is that they have full colored photos of each square. It's not like some stitch pattern books that only show a tiny photo (or section) of it. You can barely see the pattern they make...these photos are great. Instructions are clear and concise.

Great book

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Underground Crafter on August 1, 2011
Format: Paperback
This booklet features 63 stitch patterns (6 of which are squares worked in the round) to make into a sampler afghan, with instructions for edging, assembly, and border. I'd describe this as an "entry level" stitch guide designed for someone who isn't quite ready to buy a stitch guide but who is tired of using the "same old" stitches.

What I like:
The special stitches are described within the pattern so you don't have to do a lot of flipping to the back of the booklet. The booklet lays flat, so you can easily read and crochet at the same time. The booklet is more affordable and lightweight than a book. Stitch multiples are included so that you can easily adapt the stitches for a project of a different width.

What I don't like (or what's missing):
Most of the stitches are pretty standard, so if you have any other stitch guides, there is likely to be a lot of overlap. There is no pattern difficulty rating listed. The font is fairly small. There are no stitch symbols, only pattern abbreviations.

I give this booklet 4 stars if it is your first stitch guide, but only 3 stars if you already own a comprehensive stitch guide. It is a good starter for someone interested in learning more stitches or working a pieced afghan.

Love this book. I just ordered my second copy - the first one is in pieces because of its extensive use. When I received my first copy in the late 90's I was using the patterns to crochet pillow covers for a friend. In 2010, I was finally pulled into actually utilizing all 63 patterns for an afghan. I am now on my fifth afghan and am hooked on the simplicity of the patterns. I tire very easily to most afghan patterns which constantly repeat the same instructions.

I'm working on my third afghan using this pattern...my grandchildren are waiting in line for theirs.

I find the squares format perfect for someone who is on the go...I always carry a square in progress with me and I crochet on busses, in waiting rooms, in airports and on airplanes; It's amazing how productive one can be in small increments.

The directions are clear and easy to follow and with the exception of only a few, most of the squares are downright beautiful. I let my grandchildren pick their colors and they love seeing the progress. They often weigh in on their favorite square. The finished product is truly an heirloom.

63 patterns! Any of these you can use to make scarves, or choose one pattern for an entire blanket, if you're clever, you can adapt these to a sweater. I had this years ago, loaned it to someone and never got it back. I had to have the pin-wheel pattern for an entire baby blanket. I'm hanging onto this one!
