Afghans are among the most popular crochet projects, but afghan designs often seem stuck in the 1970s. Chachula (Blueprint Crochet) presents a series of afghan and afghan-inspired crochet patterns featuring modern designs and color palettes. Several of the designs are more streamlined than the openwork most people associate with crocheted afghans, although there are some lovely, lacy patterns as well. And yes--there's even a granny-square design, dubbed "Mod Retro" and crocheted in a bright 1970s color scheme. Both written and charted patterns are included. VERDICT With almost 30 different projects encompassing a variety of styles and techniques, this is an excellent value.
