5.0 out of 5 stars The great north american afghan
This is another great book which has been around for a while. Portable project squares like this are just perfect for when you are out and about, and don't want to leave your knitting at home (as if!) and you can mix match and use different colours to make your own unique blanket or throw.

Experienced knitters probably wont have a problem with these errors but i spent many hours undoing and redoing my work thinking they were my mistakes. So far i have found that pattern 16 page 34 has extra mesh holes not visible in the photo under the first set of leaves, row 66 and 68. Also Chart A text WS Rows 30-64 has (RS) right after which i found confusing? So i ignored it. Pattern 13 page 30 Chart A , row 21 should read (yo, k2tog). NOT (k2tog, yo) If i find any more i will post them here in my review.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great designs pity about the instructions, 5 Aug. 2013

Great designs but patterns have lots of errors and do not match the photographs displayed. If you are a good knitter you will be able to work the errors out but coupled with the American terminology can be tricky to follow.

I bought this as I like the idea of squares as portable knitting. what a lovely book brimming with wonderful ideas and beautiful squares as well. There is certainly something for every type of knitter from reasonably simple to things I dont dare attempt,all in all a great purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring, 26 Nov. 2014

Will need to get used to the Americanisms once again, but that shouldn't take long. Patterns are very inspiring and I cannot wait to get started. Photos are good, so that any good knitter should be able to follow the instructions. How well the instructions are written, I cannot comment on yet, but I am trusting that they will be clear enough and if not, then I hope my experience in knitting is sufficient to work them out.

The blocks in this book are amazing. Not a big chunky book. Was gutted that I bought it one day and the next day was reduced by £3 :(
