This book is not all afghans. There is a little bit everything. The book leans toward delicate victorian crochet. Some of it is regular all of it is elegant not cutesy or kitschy. I like all crochet. One of the afghans is called mohair roses, really beautiful. Lots of linen edgings really spectacular. The book is for experienced crocheters, maybe intermediate, few beginners. I consider this book one of my favorites in my collection.
