Book Review: 50 Crocheted Afghan Borders

Written by Jean Leinhauser, created by Creative Partners for Leisure Arts, this 32 page booklet it such a little find! Published in 2006, this little booklet offers some nuggets of information that I have never found in any other crochet How-to book! Pages 4-7 are golden, offering a clear explanation of how afghan borders are calculated. The simple yet thorough instructions are a standard from a source we can trust. The designs themselves are very nice and are in a wide range from simple to complex, from nostalgic to contemporary. After crocheting for many years, this is a booklet that I wish I had read first.

Hi Ellen,
I have been reading your blog for a few weeks now and have really enjoyed it! Just wanted to say a quick hello. I also love this book - it really comes in handy when edging flannel or other blankets too. Have a great day and thanks for all the great info! Grateful in Connecticut
