63 Easy-To-Crochet Pattern Stitches Combine To Make An Heirloom Afghan (Leisure Arts #555) Reviews
I like it a lot. It doesn't get boring, even though some things make no sense to me, but maybe I'm just not experienced enough. Some patterns are flat out wrong (looking at you #30 - eyelet lace) and some turn out trapezoidal no matter how many times I rip it out and start over (#39 - popcorn diamond).
I'm a beginner to crocheting and wanted to learn some new patterns. I really like this book for the pattern ideas but find that the directions are often not enough for me to accomplish a square. I often need to supplement the book with youtube videos, which is perfectly fine with me.
READ the product description. This is a 26 page booklet. It has instructions and photos of 63 different crochet patterns. It has some drawings of specific stitches and those drawing are great -- large enough I can see the detail of the stitch.
I thought this booklet was "63" easy to crochet patterns. It's 63 different stitches. At first I was a little disappointed in myself for not reading the title correctly, but then I realized all 63 stitches are for 63 different granny squares, which are put together to form this amazing afghan. It's so beautiful! When I make the square of a particular stitch, I'm planning on making 5 squares, in the same stitch. This way I can block them out overnight and make 5 new squares in a different stitch. By the time I've done all 63 stitches, I'll have enough squares (blocked and ready to go) to sew up 5 of these large afghans, one for each of my kids. I can't wait to start this! The finished product looks absolutely beautiful AND I'm learning new stitches to use in future blankets! I LOVE this booklet / pattern!
Great collection of 63 different stitches in "square" form. Great instructions, easy to follow, stitches move from the simplest to more complex, allowing beginners to improve and more advanced crocheters to add new stitches to their repertoire. Book includes photos of completed blocks and instructions for finishing the afghan. May also be used as a reference for the stitches as used in other projects.
I can't wait to make this. The booklet is great, glossy cover and quality print (I was concerned because it's for sale at double the price on amazon under a different listing so I wondered if this would be a flimsy copy, but it's great.)
Whether beginner or advanced, 63 Easy-To-Crochet Pattern Stitches offers patterns to last a lifetime. I purchased this book because I saw the finished product in the Winner's Circle at the Texas State Fair a few years ago. Since then, I have completed at least 30 of the patterns or "squares." This book is filled with unique patterns that are textured styles, creating the sophisticated appearance of knitting. For example, there are several post-stitch and cable-stitch patterns that can be easily converted into contemporary sweaters and scarves. Each pattern is written in multiples so that you can decide whether to crochet a square, scarf, afghan, sweater or more. As an instructor, I use this book to teach newbies and enthusiasts who enjoy the challenge of a new pattern. It is easy to simply look at the photos of each of the 63 patterns and decide which ones catch your eye, then follow the brief, well-written instructions. For those who enjoy assembling a massive project, the finished cover afghan is a delight.
I've had this for years. i continually buy copies of it for friends who are learning to crochet and no longer in the "only single crochet stitch" stage. It holds your hand and walks you through the stitches. The book is also excellent outside of making the snazzy samplet afghan. You can use those stitches for anything you'd like.
