Review by eclecticdodo
A Book of crochet patterns designed to work out as 6 inch squares. The project I'm working on is 12 inch squares, but it's been straightforward to adapt some and do some as 4 mini-blocks. The patterns are nice and reliable, with varying skill level but none particularly taxing. A fair amount of blocking is required for some patterns.
