Unexpected Afghans: innovative Crochet Designs with Traditional Techniques by Robyn Chahcula
This is a welcome addition to our extensive craft collection. The author has collected designs from many contemporary American crochet designers. Explosions of colours, granny motifs, Tunisian, cable and lace designs. I am definitely going to make one of the cable afghans – but which one to choose? Who knew you could do cable in crochet? Not me, but it looks very impressive in the examples in this book. Unfortunately, as it is an American book, it uses American terms, so for those of us who learnt the Australian/British terms you will need to translate Double crochet stitches into Triple crochet etc . I think some of these designs are definitely worth the effort.
