Rita Weiss’s classic, bestselling guide—which sold more than 500,000 copies—has been thoroughly redesigned, completely updated, and made more beautiful and fashionable than ever before. Think of this as a new book, not just a mere revision of the original 7-Day Afghans. It’s undergone a complete transformation through the addition of full color, with all the patterns rechecked for accuracy and rewritten in an easy-to-follow form. Almost all the original afghans appear, gorgeous as ever, but remade in fashionable, contemporary yarns and shades. Plus, several entirely original designs have been added to enhance the modernization. One look will have knitters and crocheters pulling out their needles, eager to begin. (A “refresher course” will quickly get rusty crafters up to speed.) Make an exquisite Watercolors blanket with fun-to-do cross stitches; a lacy Ice Crystals afghan; Pink Perfection, an easy crochet design that’s perfect for beginners; and other beautiful patterns.

Like the frosting on the cupcake, or the tiara on the bride, a beautiful border is the finishing touch for a lovingly created afghan, whether knitted or crocheted. Borders can be elegant or whimsical, can match or contrast with the afghan, and can lift even the simplest afghan from ''ordinary'' into the ''very special'' category. If you usually depend upon fringe as an accent, you'll have fun experimenting with these 50 crochet borders by Jean Leinhauser. The borders can be worked with any weight of yarn that works well with the body of the afghan. For some designs, the number of colors used in a border also can be varied. General instructions are included for how to use the borders, work with stitch pattern multiples, and estimate yarn amounts.
