2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected 30 Sep 2011
By fleurus
Format:Hardcover
From the title of this book I expected that there would be roughly equal numbers of knitted afghans to crocheted. In fact around 85% of the afghans were crocheted. If you prefer to knit rather than crochet there are much better books on the market.

2.0 out of 5 stars 100 Afghans to Knit and Crochet 16 Jun 2008
Format:Paperback
This book had some wonderful designs but a word of warning. This book is published in New York and the patterns are American. Whilst this does not seem to affect the knitting patterns, the crochet terminology is quite different, for instance a single crochet in America is a double crochet in England, a double crochet is a treble in England. This can make following a complicated pattern even more difficult and I found that I had to photocopy the patterns and then change the references to the English version. It would have been better if an English version of the book had been published here. Not a book for a beginner.

4.0 out of 5 stars superb grannies 18 April 2006
By M. Poller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Of the 100 afghans, most are crocheted and of those 42 are granny squares by Janie Herrin to whom the book is dedicated. All projects have a full color picture and written out instructions (nothing charted). Almost all are made in worsted wt yarns. Some projects have appeared before in leaflets and the Herrin squares were once available online but they are now beautifully published here. Cover photo doesn't do the book justice. If you love grannies, this is a must purchase. Suggest waiting for the paperback version.

2.0 out of 5 stars Afghans to KNIT and crochet??? 23 May 2006
By Jyl Milner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I agree with the previous reviewer - the crocheted afghans are pretty, and if you're looking for granny-square versions, this is a wonderful source.

However, don't be misled into thinking that knit and crochet afghans are presented in anything like equal numbers, as the book's title implies. Out of 100 afghans, a mere 14 are knit. Some are innovative, and some are just the same old thing all over again.

I've read books and used patterns by Jean Leihauser and Rita Weiss before, and these seem to be up to their usual caliber.

Overall, I give the book a 2.5. While most of the afghans are pretty, and are photographed nicely, the underrepresentation of knit afghans costs the book 2.5 stars from this (primarily) knitter. I probably would have scored the book higher if I hadn't been sadly misled by the title.

Better wishes next time, ladies!
