Morgan (100 Colorful Granny Squares To Crochet) provides an abundance of ideas for crocheted afghans in her latest book, which includes both block-based and row-by-row designs. Bright, contrasting colors and textured stitches such as shells, bobbles, and crocodile stitch add excitement. Each design includes written and charted instructions, as well as an at-a-glance overview of the supplies required and techniques used. While much of the book is beginner-friendly, there are several designs that will interest and challenge experienced crocheters.
VERDICT Afghans are an iconic crochet project, and this collection features plenty of styles, from traditional granny-square motifs to simple and elaborate row-based blankets.
