AFGHANS ON THE DOUBLE, Review by Diana SaccoAll the afghans are made with worsted weight or sports weight
Leisure Arts copyright 1996
Diana rates this afghan highly! She says, "I very much enjoyed the
wonderful variety of afghan patterns in this book. I would recommend
it without hesitation to all that enjoy crochet!"
Most of them use either N or P crochet hooks and are worked
holding two strands of yarn together for double-quick results.
Reviewer Diana Sacco, invites us to sit in a comfortable chair and
browse through this book. She helps us do this on-line by painting
word pictures of the afghans.
ZigZag Filet- an all in one piece stitched mostly in double
crochet, pictured in candy apple red!
Vingate Violets- violet motifs, granny square.
Hearthside Diamonds: This beautiful pattern includes popcorn
diamonds and ridges of reverse crochet..
Granny's Delight: Advertised as a "super-quick" granny square
afghan joined into strips- finished with a scalloped edging.
Fireside Throw: Worked in one's choice of colors, this multicolor
afghan is a great project for using up your yarn scraps.
Baby Soft Rainbow: afghan for baby,featuring a lacy pattern of
cluster stitches and scalloped edging. This afghan reminds me of a
Mimosa Blossoms: throw created entirely with single crochet
stitches,using long single crochet stitches to form the blooms.
Fanciful Fans: resembles victorian fans..worked in bright pastel
worsted weight yarn with rows of delicate scallops
Christmas Tartan Plaid: created using alternating rows of dark
green,creamy tan, and rich cranberry.. The plaid look is achieved by
vertically weaving six strands of yarn through the mesh background
that's worked in chain and half double crochets with multicolor
fringe for effect.
A final note from Diana: Although these are not afghans of a dainty,
delicate type..you have a variety to try. That's the enjoyment most
of us derive from crochet. Enjoying crocheting!
