5.0 out of 5 stars Crochet Throws and Wraps 17 May 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is excellent for many different types of throws, wraps and colour combinations. Very well explained with excellent photographs. Lots of different stitches to try. I am very happy to have this book in my stash of crochet books both for items to make and other references. It is a book for all abilities of crochet from beginner up. Almost every item is one I would like to make. Looks like I may be busy for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Throws 12 April 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well this book did not disappoint me, it has some wonderful patterns in it, and I have already started crocheting.The patterns are easy to the eye, and easy to follow.I love the Flower Garden throw and the roses and daisies, they are beautiful, and the circular coverlet is absolutely gorgeous, this the one I have started, and it is quite easy, in three parts of the project, you crochet individual flowers, and attached them round, really effective, and simple to do. The instructions are simple to follow. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes throws, and loves to crochet..

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor instructions on some projects. 8 Jan 2014
I am a very experienced crocheter and knitter. I was thrilled with the look of this book and photos. I couldn't wait to get started but not long into a couple of the projects and after numerous attempts at the Aran one, had to give in and try another. The panel D pattern for the cream Aran blanket was just impossible to follow - for sake of clarity should give which st on current row to use as working into sts 2 rows below for most of the row is confusing when returning to top. The easier throws look good - my fave was the one with triangles. However, as the triangles are so tiny, it makes your hand ache (you can't hold the work as well) so after a few triangles I couldn't face the thought of making another 140 odd! The roses/daisies throw looks good but you need very good qual dk yarn. It claims you can use oddments but be warned normal dk yarn (that you might knit jumpers in e.g.) does not give the necessary definition and texture to the flowers.
For 10 this book was a massive, massive disappointment.

A fantastic book full of modern looking projects with easy to follow instructions. Lovely photographs show well made items made from good quality yarns in great colour choices. Very inspirational, i couldnt wait to get started, my only problem was deciding which throw to make first.

A great book with lots of inspiration and a wide variety of stitches. Some patterns specify a certain yarn but others just give weight or yardage - great for stash busting.
