Classic Crochet Blankets…Book Review and Giveaway!

I was recently able to review the gorgeous book Classic Crochet Blankets (Interweave/F+W ISBN: 9781632503596) and it was so much fun to flip through.  Inside are 18 beautiful blankets that are photographed in full color and include full crochet charts. For beginners there is a tutorial, symbols, and abbreviations section too!

Note: I was given a review copy for this book but was not financially compensated.  All opinions are my own.

I love the variety of blankets too, there are very colorful and more neutral choices, plus traditional grannies and hexagons, lacy motifs, and more solid geometric options as well.  Also of note is a really great edgings section at the end so you can customize your own blanket if you like too!

The blanket below, the “Happy Hexagons Throw” is a classic design that is so cheerful and completely timeless.  A perfect way to use all of extra yarn you may have on hand too!

Another blanket that caught my eye is the “Hialeah Honey Blanket” with so many lovely stitches in one blanket.  This blanket is worked up in lighter yarn so it has a fabulous drape.

The “Urchins & Limpets Blanket” gives a nod to sea urchins and shells and I absolutely love the neutral motifs against the colorful motifs.  This is such a beautifully textured project and one that makes a bold statement too!

  1. I love crocheting blankets. Such a comfort to the recipient. I am really liking the granny square blanket.

  2. I really like the colours used in the second blanket, it looks so pretty. The Hialeah Country blanket also caught my eye with its beautiful stitches. To be honest all of the blankets look lovely, so it was difficult to pick a favourite!

  3. I LOVE the Happy Hexagons Throw but my method of changing colors is HORRIBLE … so I'd definitely need to master that before trying a throw like that one 🙂

  4. Hard choice picking out one! I am drawn to the Hialeah Honey Blanket as I love the cables!!! Darlene P.

  5. I love both the "Happy Hexagons Throw" and the "Hialeah Honey Blanket". It is too hard to choose which one is my absolute favorite.

  6. My favorite pattern is the "Urchins and Limpets Blanket." It's cute enough to appeal to young people and classic enough to be loved by the oldsters like me.

  7. Looks like there are a lot of beautiful afghans included. I love the one on the cover, but I think (from what I can see) that the Happy Hexagons throw is the first I'd crochet.

  8. I love the urchins and limpets afghan, but many others look like some I'd like to try. Thx for chance to win!

  9. Love the Urchin & Limpets blanket, I also love the colors in the 2nd blanket. I love the little squares. Thanks for a great giveaway. Fingers Crossed!

  10. Happy Hexagon Throws is my favorite blanket pattern. I love the fact that you can use up scraps of leftover yarn and make it as colorful as you want it to be. Thanks for hosting the give away.

  11. omg they are all so lovely!! i would love to make quite a few of them! thanks for the chance!! 🙂
