All-Time Favorite Afghans Book Review

Afghans and blankets have always been popular projects to crochet. Crochet World has compiled a fantastic collection of 40 Afghan patterns in this publication.

In total the eBook is 116 pages in length and is packed with only afghan and blanket patterns.

The patterns are written in US crochet terms. The eBook is in full color, with full color images. Bold type and italics are used throughout to emphasize important headings and notes. Stitch counts are included at the end of the rounds and/or rows for each afghan in the pattern.

When special stitches are used, the definition of the stitch is included within the pattern itself. Some patterns also include diagrams when special techniques are used. For example a diagram is included on page 86 when you are required to crochet in the back bar of the chain stitch.

Color charts are included for some of the designs.

Most of the patterns require medium weight yarn [4] and most of them are listed as an Easy Difficulty Level.

You will find a wide-range of different stitches to try in these designs, including but not limited to, popcorns, cables, post stitches, bobbles, puff stitches and clusters. A few projects also use Tunisian crochet stitches.

  2. The afghan on the cover, really caught my eye. But, the name of the Cathedral Rose Window Afghan, oh my!

  3. I love the Cathedral Rose Window Afghan. I have had the pattern since it first came out a LONG time ago, but haven’t done. It has been on my “To Do” list for a long time. I have been seeing it a lot lately, so it has started to move up on my “To Do”. Looking around for the colors that would match a local cathedral’s window.
