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.

Format: Paperback
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 chose this book for a friend and within a week she had made several cards and items. She is highly delighted with the book and reading other reviews it made my mind up as to which one to choose. Excellent choice, very easy to follow and ideal for beginners and more experienced.

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 .

I have used many of these blocks to make blankets. Sometimes I have enlarged them to make a full blanket from a single pattern and sometimes have combined various blocks to make a sampler blanket. The reason I can only give four stars is because the title is misleading. It doesn't really contain 200 patterns, some are merely different colour ways of the same pattern. Also the photography of some of the blocks is too dark and the pattern can't really be seen. This may be because the samplers are in dark wool, a lighter yarn would would have been more helpful in order to show the stitches to their best advantage.

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.
