Charted Picture Afghans
Book reviewed by Erin Bailey, AllFreeCrochet
Charted Picture Afghans allows readers to create more than just afghans with the patterns provided. The end result is intricate designs making the afghans special and personalized, especially if the monogram option is tried out. All blankets are made using single and double crochet and finished with various types of fringes. The fringe not only finishes the fancy blankets off, but gives them a homey feeling as well. This is apparent in the baby blanket pattern, Lost Shoe & Mitten. With the neutral colors used for these patterns, they will help tie together any room as a warm and beautiful throw.
With an introduction section, the book gets you started off right, explaining stitches needed for charted afghans. There's also a handy stitch guide in the back of the book with helpful illustrations. The real novelty, though, is the pictures that can be created with the aid of this book. Works of art that you can nap with, what more could you ask for?
I love the section on fringe this book offers. Several options to end the project, giving the blanket just a little more personality. I would end every afghan with Baby Knot Fringe, but opening my world to the Twisted and Braided fringe has given my afghans more to go off of. The patterns are all for intermediate crocheters, and may be a challenge for some, but if the cover isn't indication enough, the gorgeous results are worth the patience and effort with these picture afghans.
Spruce up your afghan collection with one of these, or whip out the hooks to make some gorgeous gifts.
