40 Colorful Afghans Book Review

This book is a wonderful guide to all the typical crochet stitch patterns and motifs that are so popular and the book would be perfect for someone who wants to have all of these in one place.

Leonie has covered just about every type of crochet and you will find quilt inspired projects, textures, bobbles, grannies, tapestry crochet, just about everything people want in crochet.

This is a great book for the one-stop shop of crochet patterns. There are patterns for beginner, intermediate and advanced. There are written patterns, symbol charts and color charts.

Flipping to the back of the book, I was pleasantly surprised that there are charts provided for the suggested baby blanket, throw and bedspread sizes for all the blankets with yarn yardage required. I’ve never seen that in any book and I like it!

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDF's of my patterns. You can, of course, view, print ,paste to a word processor, convert to PDF's, etc, on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
