When you need a quick gift for a shower, choose a mile-a-minute baby afghan! Mile-a-minute designs all have an easy, repetitive pattern that you can finish fast. The tutorial and sample project in this book explain how it works, and the six afghans show some of the many styles that are possible. What they all have in common is that they are crocheted in narrow panels, either in short rows or around a long beginning chain; then a border is added and the strips are joined. Crocheted using light or medium weight yarns, designs include Lemon Drop, Pineapple Parade, and Wavy Strips, all by Anne Halliday; Miles of Shells by Carole Prior; Easter Mile-A-Minute by Jennine Korejko; and Daisies for Baby by Terry Kimbrough.

I was amazed at the outcome of the first pattern I tried. It was very easy, the pattern was easy to read & easily transferred to the actual pattern. When I finished just the first 12 - 15 rows, I was so very pleased with the pineapple, just couldn't believe it was so easy! I have been crocheting 35 years & would never try the mile-a-minute, now its all I want to do! Even tho I have only tried one pattern from the book I plan on trying them all!!!

The lemon drop baby blanket is adorable. Triple crochets are not my favorite, but the result is definitely worth it. The instructions were easy to follow and made up Beautifully.
