From Art Deco–inspired geometric designs to traditional checkerboard stripes and elaborate motifs, this guide helps crafters rediscover crochet with more than 200 fabulous block patterns. Employing traditional styles and contemporary colors, crocheted blocks inspire crafters to create a dynamic palette of color, pattern, and texture by mixing, matching, and combining. Step-by-step instructions accompany each pattern, along with stunning photographs that encourage crocheters to explore a range of color combinations and coordinates. A directory of blocks is cross-referenced with symbols that describe the techniques used and the degree of difficulty, and each pattern is designed so that finished blocks are the same size when they are worked in yarn of the same weight. A useful refresher course of crochet stitches and techniques is included, as are patterns for edgings and instructions on making fringes to finish off afghans in style.

  • Very Coloful Variety of Crochet Blocks!

    This book is full of beautiful, coloful granny sqaures with a good variety of project ideas for coordinating sets of squares together. There are even a few edgings included in the techniques section. OVerall, it is a very appealing book for those who crochet or would like to learn to do so.

  • Great Crochet Book!

    This is a great crochet block book. I bought the book because I liked the color combination used on the cover squares, and when it arrived I was just as happy with the blocks shown in the book, too: the color combinations are wonderful.The blocks in the book are easy to find because the table of contents is pictorial, and each block is named rather than just numbered (i.e. it's much easier to remember you liked the "snowflake" block rather than #26).The blocks are all rated by skill level: 1 hook = beginner/easy; 2 hooks = intermediate; 3 hooks = advanced/difficult. The majority of the blocks are 2 hooks.I've read other reviews of this book that people are disappointed that the book doesn't really have 200 blocks--that there are a number of repeated blocks just done in other colors. Who cares? It's cram-packed full of enough blocks to keep you busy for a l-o-n-g time.Also, make sure to go to the Interweave Press website and download the list of corrections for the book. There are 7 squares that have corrections.Finally, the blocks are all 6".I highly recommend this book.

  • Lots of color

    There are several wonderful things about this book, first the very obvious motifs, squares, and how to put them together. But the thing I like most about this book is all the color combinations. For me this is a keeper in my library.
