I looked at this and decided that I just had to try it. I love knitting afghans and love to learn new stitches and techniques. This book has beautiful pictures of each square as well as clear and concise instructions - which doesn't mean easy, but by following very carefully, I have managed to get through the first four squares and plan to continue one at a time. I'm using leftovers to practice. It is fun and great for the grandkids who go through the book picking out which square will be theirs. Beautiful book and well worth the price.
