The Book of the Month, Learn-To-Knit Afghan by Barbara Walker, was presented by Patti Reyes. The patterns in the book are categorized by technique and range from simple knit and purl stitches to lace and color work. The book can be used to explore different stitches and knitting techniques. The afghan is quite large if made with worsted weight yarn; finer yarn can be used for a smaller version. Patti showed an afghan made by her mother from this book .
