Product Description

Product Description

Get out your odds and ends of yarn!
All these Afghans can be made with scrap yarn! Not only are they vintage beauties they are economical too.

These patterns were first published from 1930 to the 1950’s!
You can create your own crocheted keepsakes from some of the most beautiful afghan patterns of yesteryear.
I have re-designed each pattern using current materials and terminology so you can crochet these wonderful Afghans.

All the patterns in my book use Red Heart yarn.
The original vintage patterns called for yarns and sometimes even crochet hooks that are no longer available or extremely difficult to find.
The updated re-written pattern instructions were tested using Red Heart yarn in current available colors.
The instructions are in US terms.

An international symbol chart has been made for each afghan!
The international symbol system was invented by the Japanese in the 1960's or possibly earlier.
The original afghan patterns, however, did not have any symbol charts.

Included is a link to a YouTube Video for the Wheel Afghan!
Most of the afghan patterns are very easy to crochet with the exception of the Wheel Afghan.
This afghan is a bit more challenging and I would recommend it for more experienced crocheters.
The wheel block itself is a mix of regular crochet and the afghan stitch.
If you are familiar with the afghan stitch you won't have any problems making the wheels.
I made a YouTube video demonstrating this very unique stitch. You will find the link near the end of the book.

Easy to Crochet Vintage Scrap Afghans is also available in paperback!
But why wait you can have your kindle copy in less than a minute! My copy is on a kindle fire.
The photos are in full color on the kindle fire and can be enlarged
to get a closer look. You can also view the kindle version on your PC with the Amazon kindle app.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 8 July 2013
By mary
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I saw this book, it looked very interesting. I "looked inside". The contents page led the me to understand there were many different patterns in the book. But on arrival I found only two different crochet patterns i.e. the traditional granny square and the hexagon pictured on the front of the book. The different afghans were just various colour combinations of the two patterns (square and hexagon). So it was not as I had expected.

2.0 out of 5 stars I expected colour format throughout 6 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
To be of best use to me, this book needs to be in colour format. I would have been happier to pay more for it if it was in full colour like the cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Crochet Guide to Vintage Scrap Afghans 2 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful, colourful collection of vintage afghans that you can make from scrap yarn. The guide is suitable for people with basic skills in crotchet. The great thing about the full colour images is that you can zoom in to take a closer look. Clear instructions are provided along with a section about crochet terms and abbreviations.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Patterns 15 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The patterns are great and easy to follow with the addition of charts. It would be good to have more info on the source of the original pattern included. The patterns would be suitable for beginners who know the basic stitches and can crochet in the round. The colours are bright and modern.

3.0 out of 5 stars Crotchet book 2 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very speedy delivery but I have bought a similar book and there were lots of colourful pictures to see. When you are learning to crotchet it's good to see photos of the finished item than drawings.

Was quite disappointed as expected some coloured pictures in this little booklet. However, it was simple to follow insructions. I suppose you cannot have all ways for the price.

not the most innovative crochet booklet on the market, first design very colourful, but others seemed a bit 'dull'.. but ok for beginners.
