Unexpected Afghans, by Robyn Chachula...a great new book is just out on the market!

Robyn pulled this book together guided by her curiosity about what other designers might have in their houses! And, so the concept was born.

Unexpected Afghans is divided into 5 sections, each devoted to a different sector of crochet; cables, granny motifs, color, lace and Tunisian, so there really is something for everyone.

I was lucky enough to have contributed to this book with my favorite technique - cables. My afghan is named Vika (pronounced vee-kah), and is also worked in the log cabin style.

There are 24 different afghan patterns (plus 5 pillow patterns), the afghans are all by different designers including Kristin Omdahl, Marly Bird, Ellen Gormley, Drew Emborsky, Annie Modesitt and MANY more, so you're going to find a really diverse set of patterns here. You're SURE to find something you like!

So - because this is a brand new book I am allowed to give to one lucky person a FREE PDF copy of this book! Yes! All you have to do to be in the running to win, is to leave a comment on this page telling me which is your favorite afghan pattern and why. It doesn't have to be from this book, just, if you have a favorite, do tell - we all want to know!

All are awesome!

All the patterns look great, but I like the Peacock afghan the best. It looks like a flower motif, which I love. (cnuland on Rav)

I love the Van Go waves by Kim. I love tunisian and love the painting "Starry Nights," which she said was her inspiration!

I would love to make any of the afghans from this book; I think the Van Gogh Waves is my favorite, although yours is spectacular as well! I love to do Tunisian. (I am Nancy Davis on FB, Webpossum on Ravelry, and my email is webpossumsniche@gmail.com)

Favorite Afghan to make
by: Valencia

My favorite afghan pattern is one I created using a ripple pattern. I love combining colors and the wavy rhythm the pattern creates. I love doing this for shower presents and gifts.

I also love those continuous granny square afghans where you keep adding rounds until the afghan is the size you want -- easy and fun!

My favorite

My favorite afghan of all time right now is Bullion Beach Blanket by Donna Kay Lacey. It is a fresh exciting take on roll stitches.

I especially love the Peerie baby blanket! My adopted daughter is expecting in October :)
They are all beautiful though and it will be a difficult choice as to which to make first.

unexpected afghans entry
by: Kate M

I don't know that I have a favorite. Whatever is going to challenge me is my favorite at the time :). I am so EXCITED about this book. I have always admired cables that are found in knitting and I am excited that there so many afghans in this book that use that technique in crochet! Thanks for the chance to win!--kateyhbf@gmail.com--Kate M, PA
