    One thought on “200 knitted blocks for blankets, throws and afghans”

    1. Eaton's book contains enough blocks to create your own afghan, each block will be the same size if the same yarn and needles are used and the inspirational potential is great. I agree entirely with the reviewer who said this doesn't actually contain over 200 blocks as some are just variations, some only colour variations which any of us can do. However, my major issue is with the construction of the book. Eaton starts with a short interesting introduction on how to use the book and block directo [...]

    2. This books contains excellent instructions on the illustrated patterned blocks as well as advice on colour matching, how to knit (although you should probably know the basics before starting)and finishing off an afghan. There are some beautiful examples of assembled blankets too. In fact, there is so much choice that I find myself quite overwhelmed when I'm looking through it - I want to do them all, right now! There are enough examples in here to keep an avid knitter going for quite some time. [...]

    3. Great selection of patterns, and the best part is the big photos so you can really see the patterns.One disappointing thing is that a lot of the 200 blocks are just color variations of the same block. Uh, that's kinda cheating isn't it? I think they should have just named it "150 blocks" or whatever and made the color variations seem like a bonus. But whatever.I haven't actually used it to make blocks. I mostly use it to pick out patterns. Like for scarves.

    4. So many fun possibilities, and such a great way to use oddments of yarn too! As a long-time quilter, this book really appealed to me. Patterns include a wide variety of skill levels. The book is well laid out and beautifully illustrated. A joy!
