I love crocheting. That being said, I love this book. I find the instructions really easy to follow, and there are tons of great patterns in this book. There are not 200 different patterns (towards the end it becomes one pattern in four colors). There are probably well over a hundred patterns in this book, and I've had a lot of fun mixing and matching them. This is a great book for crocheters that need projects that are easily portable. A single square doesn't take up much space, and you won't need to lay them all out until your ready to stitch them together. These patterns can also be transformed. I've made a few scarves from the patterns in this book.

About This Item
For Sale is a brand new version of 200 Crochet Blocks for Blankets Throws and Afghans by Jan Eaton and is ready for immediate shipment.
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.

A great crochet book.
If you like to crochet, this book is one of the best ones around. It has well over 100 different motifs; shows you them in different colors; gives you plenty of ideas on putting an afghan together using different motifs; shows you how to put colors together; has a stitch guide. A crochet book that has it all!
LOVE it! Beautiful photos and different blocks. Allowing you to change it up! Only reason i didn't give it 5 stars is because i felt it was a bit misleading... are there 200 blocks yes but some of the blocks are the same just the change in yarn colors to make it look different, regardless of that it still has lots of wonderful blocks and if i lost this book i would re-buy this book again and yes i would also recommend it.
