Reviews for 200 Crochet Blocks for Blankets, Throws and Afghans
Great Book :-)
This is a really great book for beginners and more advanced crocheters alike. I have been crocheting for many, many years & teach crochet professionally and this is the book that I most often refer to.
Not only is it great if you want to make blocks for an afghan, blanket or cushion, but it's a great source of inspiration, with it's colour combination and ideas for combining the different squares and patterns. It is also a good resource for MANY different stitch patterns that you can not only use in blocks, but for many other things as they can be simply adapted :-)
This is the book I recommend to all my crochet students :-) by Shara Lambeth
Looking for something a little more challenging, but not necessarily harder?
This book contains all the stitch descriptions you'll need, along with colour tips, and texture mix
Very intuitive layout showing at a glance weather a block is worked in rows or rounds, skill level, colour pallet and suggested complimentary block patterns.
Copy a throw right out of the book, or use the suggestions as inspiration to create your own unique piece. by Jemma Georgitsis
This book is a must!! So well illustrated and instructions are so simple. This is a must for those of you who want to make your own throw, blanket or afghan, but want to design it yourself. It is so full of wonderful patterns and colour ideas. Go for it, treat yourself!!! by SUSAN DOWN
