Reinvent the crocheted afghan with any one of these innovative designs featured in Unexpected Afghans by Robin Chachula. This 160-page book features a beautiful collection of fresh and vibrant afghans for your home. Inside, you'll find contemporary-looking afghans that were designed using traditional techniques. The book is broken down into five chapters: cables, granny motifs, color, lace, and Tunisian. Each chapter begins with a smaller pillow project to help ease the reader into beginning one of the larger afghan patterns that follows. There are various skill levels included in each chapter, as well, and patterns include easy-to-follow charts and diagram.

This book is chock-full of beautiful patterns, so it may be hard to decide which one to make first. Some of my personal favorites include the Eloise Baby Blanket (pg. 15), Desert Sunrise (pg. 79), Moroccan Circles (ph. 85), Bethlehem Star (pg. 91), and Van Gogh Waves (pg. 139). Featured designers include Kristin Omdahl, Drew Emborsky, Kim Guzman, Linda Permann, Mary Beth Temple, and more.

Unexpected Afghans is definitely a must have guide for crochet fans of all skills and levels. With the helpful suggestions and layouts from author Robyn Chachula, these crocheted afghans are definitely must-do patterns for crocheters of all ages and skill levels . Add this book to your collection today!

Unexpeceted Afghans is available to purchase from our online store, CutRateCrafts.
