This is a great book with simple and intermediatye afghans. If you haven't knitted for awhile, this will give you confidence to take on a 'big' project. Unique patterns as well. Enjoy!
Excellent Book for Knitters Dec 22, 2006
I have checked this book out from the library so many times that I've finally ordered a copy from this site.
There are 34 knitting patterns and 16 crochet patterns. I can only address the knitting patters as I know nothing about crochet. The knitting patterns are for either beginner's or intermediate; the biggest decision is which afghan you'll want to make first.
The pattern's were first published in Family Circle Magazie between 1997 and 2001. All of the patterns are very contemporary and use a variety of different yarn types - Lion Brand, Patons, Plymouth, Red Heart, Crystal Palace, Mission Falls, etc.
I have been on an afghan kick, looking at many knitting books with afghan patterns. This book is one of the best!
tip for owners of this book Nov 26, 2003
I haven't read it, but I've seen it and it looks like a good book. I'm writing this review to pass on this info to anyone who might be able to use it. The following is something I picked up from someone else:
Liked the variety of selections in this book. Can't give it an outstanding because my copy has at least one erratum. After an email to Family Circle I received this correction for page 30 "Portable Throw [for] beginner knitters". 3/4 of the way down the left hand column and under "Stitches -- Chevron and Feather" you will find ROW 1 of the Pattern. It reads:"Row 1(RS)*K1,yo, W"<====this "W" should be replaced by "k4" and then continue on. In my opinion this pattern is better for intermediate knitters, it contains 'lace' stitches. However, if you can master yo's (yarn over's) and K2tog's (knit two together's) you can knit this lovely afghan very quickly. Also wrong: crochet afghans (2nd half of bk)are listed for "knitters" levels.
