I like this book very much, it is interesting to see the many variations that can be made and the lovely colors that can be incorporated together to get a beautiful pattern. It is a good book for beginners and those a little advanced, takes a little time but the result is worth it.

If you enjoy crocheting afghans that have the appearance of tapestry, I think you will love the designs in this inexpensive booklet. All of the afghans described and photographed in the booklet are made with synthetic yarns, usually acrylic yarns, and they each have approximately 8 inch long fringes hanging out the two long sides of the completed afghans. The lengths of yarn (fringe) are indeed reminiscent of Fair Isle knitting as are the geometric patterns for the afghans.

Since I prefer to work with wool yarn, similar to that used by Fair Isle knitters, I crochet the depicted afghans with wool yarn and treat the yarn ends the way such knitters would; that is, I weave SHORTENED yarn ends neatly to the reverse side edges of the crocheted afghan. For this to work, I have to widen each side of the afghans a few stitches more than is required in the original pattern. Then I turn over the crocheted edge in a narrow hem to conceal my shortened yarn ends. And, if necessary -- that is, if the yarn has not more or less "felted" itself to itself, I can baste the hem down with yarn that matches the background color of the afghan. I baste the hem in such a way that the basting stitches are concealed among the yarn stitches of the afghan. This way, I do not have those long side fringes hanging out the long sides of the afghans. I think it's a waste of expensive yarn to use that much yarn in the first place. But "to each his own."

Whichever way you go, with acrylic or wool yarn, I think you will be pleased with your finished products!

I didn't expect this book to be easy, but the patterns seem well written and easy to follow. There is one I really like, but I'm waiting for the perfect colors before I try it out.
