This book has inspired me to start knitting something other than scarves in fancy wool[what an addiction!] the clear easy to follow instructions are excellent for even the most fearful novice knitter. The ideas are both classical and contemporary and suggest how you can design your own banket. All the squares are 6inches when knitted on size 8mm needles and double knitting wool. Time to climb into the loft or drag out all those carrier bags from behind the sofa and get knitting. ENJOY!

When I bought this book I was anticipating 200 different knitted block patterns. This was not the case.Many of the blocks are variations on a theme e.g. colourways, so that was disappointing. However, in its favour there is a very good section at the start on design and use of the blocks and several very good examples of throws or blankets knitted from combinaions of block patterns.

I must admit to being a bit dissapointed with this book - it came in the post, I unwrapped it, I opened the cover to the list of all the squares - it started out well, but after about 50 squares the author cops out and just duplicated each one five times or so in five different colours or variations. This was a real let down - I realise that it must be difficult to think of 50 squares, but I'm sure given a stitch dictionary and a couple of hours most of us could come up with some better ideas than having the last half being a case of "no51 - cable stitch square in red and blue, no52-cable stitch square in green and white" etc, etc. If you are looking for a Blanket or Afghan book either buy a stitch dictionary and do the work yourself, or go look under Debbie Abrahams!

I've bought this book because I quickly get bored with big projects, but for some reason, knitting lots of small squares is fun.

My only gripe is that some of the squares are repeated up to 5 times in different colours, so if you're expecting 200 different designs you may be disappointed.

On the plus side, I love that there are suggestions on how to put the squares together. I'll be scanning the sqaures and then cutting and pasting to make a patchwork design I like before I start knitting. (But then I love playing on my pc too!)

Each square also has suggestions of up to 3 other squares you could knit to form a larger project. Brilliant book!

I got this book recently and am delighted with it .It is set out in easy to follow sections and helps you to design and plan throw of you choice taking into account your own skill level etc .A great book for the knitter full of knitting tips can be used by all the family .I am making a throw for my granson using this book it is based on a nautical theme and have used the button up square as one of the basic squares in the throw but used stars instead of buttons to finish it off. Would recommend .My friend got the authors other book on crochet squares exactly the same but using crochet .

As a beginner I wanted to get a book of block with someone that were challenging, but not too complicated, this was just what I got. I hope to get through quite a few squares in this book, as I slowly improve. A good Buy.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Jo Bennie VINE VOICE on 21 Jun. 2011
Format: Paperback
Eaton's book contains enough blocks to create your own afghan, each block will be the same size if the same yarn and needles are used and the inspirational potential is great. I agree entirely with the reviewer who said this doesn't actually contain over 200 blocks as some are just variations, some only colour variations which any of us can do. However, my major issue is with the construction of the book.

Eaton starts with a short interesting introduction on how to use the book and block directories. But she places a 'mix and match' section on ideas for combining blocks before the block directory itself, which I feel would have been better the other way round giving the reader time to look at the blocks and absorb their detail first. She places her 'techniques' section last of all, which I would have put in the introduction, because it is here she deals with yarn weights, calculation of amounts, needles, stitches and abbreviations, after the designs which use these abbreviations in the first place. Each section is really useful, but even as a fairly experienced knitter I found the order confusing.

However, as a source of inspiration and as a resource this is a great book
