I'm a great collector of afghan patterns, but this one will become a favourite. From the complex colour of the cover pattern to fast, big hook,thick/ multiple ply yarn designs, there's something here to please the adventurous, the classicist, and those in a hurry. The patterns include several single colour, textured designs, including a lovely celtic cable. There are a few that use different qualities of yarn in one pattern( mohair and ribbon for instance) and a some that have elaborate block designs. There are many that are rated as easy enough for a beginner, none are really difficult. US books often have overtly patriotic designs that I resent paying for, but this book has only one, and no cutesy designs specifically aimed at children. I found only two designs here that I really disliked, mostly these are attractive useful patterns that would be appropiate as gifts for all ages .
