Unique and exciting

I have a gripe about many home-decor knitting books: They use expensive, exotic, imported yarns and then they dumb down the designs so the only interesting thing about the finished product is how much you spent on the yarn. This book does just the opposite. The authors take simple, inexpensive, easy-to-find materials and produce gorgeous results that are unlike designs you will find anywhere else. There is something marvelous about this book. It is truly unique. Another nice feature is the wide variety of skill levels represented. You can find intricate cables and openwork designs as well as simple garter stitch in unusual colors. All are equally striking. The instructions are clear. There are color photos on almost every page. This book is a must-have.

very special

I recommend this for anyone doing knitted afghans. Each pattern comes with info on the actual yarns used but also with enough info to substitute others. The cover pattern is just gorgeous. The last pattern shows the authors' Indian heritage with the embroidery and shisha work. In between are afghans in aran stitches, lace, slip-stitch, mosaic,modular, etc. A lot of love from a trio of sisters went into this book which makes it so special.

Terrific knitted afghan book!!

I have seen many afghan books and this book beats them all. I cannot explain how gorgeous this book looks like. There are complete instructions on making the afghans in both written and chart format. The photography is absolutely beautiful and shows the afghans close-up. There is a complete thorough basic chapter, which includes how to embroider, attach pompoms, store, care, finish afghans, information on yarns, needles, and much more. I have found that some of the yarns used in this book can be bought at your local Walmart, Michaels, JoAnn, or any craft store or at your local yarn store. The afghans uses ranges of yarns from acrylic to cashmere. When a book does not use cheap yarn, then it just turns me off. This book uses both expensive and cheap yarns, and I can easily subsitute the expensive yarns for cheaper brands!! I can't say how satisfied I am with this book.

Book was recommended to me

Ok--so I was recommended to look at this book. Well, what did I think? The name fits the afghans--GORGEOUS!!! I don't know what else to say, the charts are colorful, the patterns are clear and most of all the afghans ARE gorgeous! Colorful, creative, and cultural. Just like I was recommended to buy this book, I recommend you to too!!!

Beautiful Exotic Book

This is a very beautiful book. The afghans are exotic and gorgeous. There are not only one or two beautiful projects, almost all of them are gorgeous. I am Not disapointed, and am definately pleased. I would recommend this book for any knitter--from newbie to experienced.
