I made one of these (I think it was the one shone in red). I found it quite challenging Also, the finished afghan seemed really heavy to me. With all the stitches that require crossing yarn over yarn you use up a lot of yarn. It's very rich looking and good to look at but we don't use it much.

Just finished my first afghan from this book (the cover afghan) and it is simply gorgeous. I ran just a bit short on the amount of yarn recommended as I crochet very loosely so you might order an extra skein just to be safe. I can't wait to try some of Bonnie's other beautiful designs.

I just love this booklet. I love the looks of Aran Afghans and these patterns are very easy to follow. I have made 2 of these so far. One I gave away as a Christmas gift and when that person opened it, the surprise and joy that lit her face was all the thank you I needed. I like to be challenged when I am crocheting and it is so much fun to see these designs emerge as you are working them. And just as you are starting to get a little tired of the same pattern the pattern changes. I am known by my family for making everyone afghans, and these are some they can treasure for years. I hope I can win so I can buy more yarn for my next project.

These patterns are beautiful, easy to follow, and adaptable to other projects. I have always wanted to use designs like these but only ever see them for knitting. Thank you
