Review quote

This book is really well set out with 1 block per page. There are written instructions as well as charts making it accessible to all. I am used to following written patterns and set off to follow these but I have to say I had some difficulties. This may be something to do with the fact that I started with an advanced pattern which could have been slightly ambitious (there are three categories easy, intermediate and advanced). The consequence of this however is that I have managed to teach myself how to read charts from this book so I am really chuffed.The book gives quite comprehensive instructions. It gives a summary of which hooks to use with which yarns, how to read ball bands, how to start and finish neatly, suggestions for edgings and advice on how to arrange the blocks together. At the back there are 4 examples of projects which you can make. My favourite page shows one block worked with different hook sizes and yarns. It really shows what a difference this makes clearly.-Makeandcraft.com/Knitnrun4sanity There are a variety of blocks in this book, with some interesting compositions. This makes it easy to find many that you will want to combine into a blanket, throw or a myriad of other accessories. The book also includes charts - a useful addition to help conquer any troublesome patterns - and some very handy tips on sewing or crocheting your motifs together when finished.-Inside Crochet We're sure you've seen traditional crocheted blanket squares before, but have you seen ones featuring 3D flowers and butterflies? They're all in this book! Some blocks are square, others hexagonal, circular or triangular. Choose your favourites and sew them together to create a throw, purse, cushion or scarf, instructions for which are given. Or use them to create your own projects with leftover yarn - with so many shapes, styles and sizes, the possibilities are endless.-Knit Today This charming collection of square, triangular, diamond and hexagonal blocks can be mixed and matched for items such as throws, accessories and baby blankets. Everything has a floral theme and the patterns, charts, techniques and projects will inspire every crochet fan from beginners to more advanced crafters. Our wish is that Betty returns to machine knitting.-Machine Knitting Monthly
