The hardest part for me about finding a project to start is finding that perfect pattern that matches the person you are making it for. There are thousands of blanket patterns that all look sort of similar but I love finding that one that stands out, one that every one will look at and think wow! Many pattern books have one like that, but Contest Favorites 40 Afghans to Crochet has 40 that are all top notch designs.
With 40 patterns written in easy to follow directions that are designed for all levels from beginner to more challenging, the only struggle I have now is picking which one to do first! With the holiday season fast approaching I will be using this pattern book over and over and I know my gift recipients will all be happy with the awesome creations.
A few that rise to the top for me are the Starlight, because it reminds me of peppermints, the Christmas, and the Woven Scraps because I have never seen one like that before and it is adorable. Do you make afghans for gifts? What is your favorite type of project?
