Praise for Robyn Chachula's previous title, "Baby Blueprint Crochet" Flamie Award Winner 2011 for best designer, children.Nominated as Best Book of 2010 by Crochet Liberation Front. "I hope you'll take a look at "Baby Blueprint Crochet" and that you'll enjoy it as much as I do. For you new crocheters, Robyn is a genius and experienced teacher. She is known for breaking down instructions clearly and for visual crochet, which is the use of charts. Robyn's instructional section in the book is like none-other. I will use it for a reference from here on out. For experienced crocheters, you will love the ease and sophistication of these projects." - "Spudandchloe.com/blog" "As with her other books, Chachula pays special attention to detail in her patterns and finishing. There's plenty of help in this book to get you through each project. Beginners and more experienced crocheters will benefit equally from the details Chachula includes." - "CraftGossip.com" "Robyn is innovative in her construction and designs, while still down to earth and realistic about what little kids will wear. This book is a must-have." - "PetitePurls.com" "Irresistible, Darling, & Super Cute are what I would describe when surfing through this Fabulous Book." - "Michael Sellick, The Crochet Crowd" "We've all seen thousands of baby wearables, cute as can be, but Robyn has a very original approach." - "Crochet Insider" "Modern, Cheery, Useful Designs" - "Annie's Attic" Praise for Robyn Chachula's previous title, "Blueprint Crochet" "Recommended for public libraries." -- "Library Journal" "One of the most educational (and inspirational) crochet books I've read...[the] quick introduction on the basics of crochet symbols and charts completely blew me away." -- "Classic Elite Web-Letter" "Chachula, a self-described visual crocheter, here marries her crafty innovation with her background as a structural engineer...She's able t

Auch wer kein Englisch beherscht, kann diese vielen schönen Muster nacharbeiten. Die Bilder sind so groß, das man ganz genau sehen kann, wie die Decken aussehen sollen. Die Anleitungen sind als Text und auch in Häkelzeichen vorhanden. Ich kann diese Buch nur empfehlen.

Traditional without being the same old thing 16. Juni 2012
Von Rudy Fan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a different type of crochet book still with some of the traditional designs, but with some added zing. These designs are all done with attention to detail. These are not just thrown together and are not boring. They are truly artistic works done by top designers. Here are the main contents of the items in the book:

Tuxedo Pillow + Cable Tips
Eloise Baby
Artesia Zigzag
Croises Cable
Veledilo Cable

Hatsukoi Pillow + Granny Motif Tips
Dots + Poppies Baby
Mod Retro
Cabine de Dentelle

Elan Waves Pillow + Color Tips
Peerie Baby
Behrens Color Block
Desert Sunrise
Moroccan Circles
Bethlehem Star

Vigne Pillow + Lace Tips
Amada Baby
Sunken Treasure
Damask Lace
Exploded Pineapple

Nauha Pillow + Tunisian Tips
Smocked Elegance Baby
Mission Cabled
Aryanah Sampler
Van Gogh Waves
Starburst Entrelac

Even the names are works of art! And as you can see, each section has specific tips concerning that particular type of crochet work. Each chapter has a mini-workshop to help the crocheter succeed with each pattern.

The mixing of lace and single crochet struck me as quite different in Cabine de Dentelle. This would be best used as a decorative piece, not for warmth. One piece I particularly like is Van Gogh Waves; it is just gorgeous and lush looking. I love the colors and the wave design does indeed remind me of Van Gogh's art. Also, I usually don't like cables in crochet, but these are better looking than most and used to full advantage in these afghans.

The yarn requirements are clearly stated. They use some sweet yarn, but substitutions would be easy to do. The rest of the pattern is very readable in a good font and each special stitch is explained in detail. All skill levels can use this book, but I would say it's more for intermediate crocheters, rather than for beginners.

This book isn't perfect, but then again sometimes all those 'out there' type crochet books really aren't for the usual person looking for some unusual designs. They can sometimes look a bit too artsy to be practical. I think this book balances the two approaches and I can recommend it to anyone looking for a slightly different approach to the usual afghans.

Designs Are More "Traditional" Than "Unexpected" 16. Juni 2012
Von Lynne E. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
In compiling this collection of traditional but thoroughly modern afghans, crochet designer Robin Chachula asked other well-known designers "to use the afghan as a vehicle to showcase their favorite aspect of crochet." The designers responded with afghans using crochet cables, colorwork, lace, granny motifs, and Tunisian crochet.

In purchasing this book, I was hoping for more of the "unexpected". Thus I was somewhat disappointed by the "traditional" look of most of the afghan designs. Two of the most intriguing designs are Vika (Celtic cables and knots) and Bethlehem Star (inspired by the Bethlehem Star quilt pattern). However, Vika's central Celtic knot is accomplished with applied I-cord, and Bethlehem Star's motifs are made from small, individually-crocheted pieces (the rays of the stars) that must be sewn together. Thus I can't see myself making either afghan, although both are quite pretty.

However, you can't go wrong with a pattern collection published by Interweave Press! The crochet instructions are given in both written-out and charted form, and the full-color photographs of the afghans (including closeups showing important details) are beautiful. The individual patterns include quotations from the designers, plus tips for making the particular afghan look its best. For example, the Vika tip explains how to avoid catching your stitches on other stitches when you're working post stitches behind stitches already worked; the Cabine de Dentelle tip explains the importance of blocking the squares by carefully ironing them.

Many of the designers have contributed short motivational "Beginner Tips" in the book's introduction. The cable designs are by Robyn Chachula, Marty Miller, Drew Emborsky, Annie Modesitt, Jill Wright, and Simona Merchant-Dest. The granny motif designs are by Robyn Chachula, Linda Permann, Ellen Gormley, Edie Eckman, Annette Petavy, and Tammy Hildebrand. The colorwork designs are by Robyn Chachula, Kathryn Merrick, Leigh Radford, Carol Ventura, Kimberly McAlindin, and Mary Beth Temple. The lace designs are by Robyn Chachula, Tracie Barrett, Kristin Ohmdahl, Marly Bird, and Doris Chan. The Tunisian crochet designs are by Robyn Chachula, Darla Fanton, Diane Halpern, Dora Ohrenstein, Kim Guzman, and Megan Granholm.

Not for the beginner 9. Juli 2012
Von M. Poller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I agree with both of the other reviewers that this is quite a special afghan book and will be appreciated by the advanced crocheter looking for something unusual. The first section of cables is for me the most difficult one. I like the Tunisian crochet and the lace and granny sections. The afghans I'd most like to make are the Tunisian crochet sampler by Ohrenstein, Van Gogh waves by Guzman and Starburst entrelac afghan by Granholm. This book doesn't have a lot of information on doing the cable stitches. with all of the regular type afghan books it's good to have one that is definitely original by lots of well known designers working today.

Neat pattern ideas, but lots of errors. 21. April 2013
Von Kendra F. C. Smith - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This instructional crochet book has some creative afghan ideas and their projects are often shown in colors I wouldn't expect, but that come together amazingly well. The problem is in the written instructions. It is doubtful the author had a test group attempt the projects without pictoral aid, as I've attempted three projects thus far and all three have had inconsistencies between the written instructions and the symbolized pattern. If not for said pattern, I would have given up. Use your own judgment and skill level in considering this book. I would not recommend it for beginners.

Worth it! 14. Mai 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Beautiful and well explained. Did I mention beautiful? It has been awhile since I have crocheted. And from the little I remember, I understood the instructions clearly enough to make these amazing stitches. All I did was tweak the colors and the size. And Walla .....comfy cozies for all.
This book will guide you well.
