Usually I stay away from books that have both knit and crochet patterns in it, because I usually choose patterns by what I am in the mood to do - knit or crochet. This book has a mixture and, to my dismay, is no different than the many others that I have come across. The delineation is not in the table of contents, or the index. Sure they specify this on every pattern but it is on the inside of the page by the binding so you have to physically look at every pattern! Let me choose! Don''t make me hunt for my preference and let''s face it, knit afghans may look lovely, they do take a lot of time to make. So if you are in a hurry to crochet a baby afghan, you won''t be able to make a quick start using this book.
