Find out how to create your own wonderful and unique afghans, wall hangings and accessories in a kaleidoscope of colourful contemporary and traditional designs. Choose from 200 beautiful crochet block patterns to mix and match, and learn different ways of joining them to make blankets and throws that are both functional and decorative. From Art Deco-inspired geometric patterns to traditional chequerboard stripes and elaborate motifs, discover new ways to combine colour, pattern and texture. All stitches and techniques are clearly explained with step-by-step illustrations, from working in rows and in the round to joining blocks and making fringes. At-a-glance symbols denote the methods used and level of difficulty, so both new and experienced crafters can easily create a crochet masterpiece. Choose from easy to advanced crochet patterns and use the blocks in one of the suggested layouts, or design your own - all blocks finish to the same size when worked in the same yarn weight.

This invaluable crochet block library will be used time and time again from simple baby blankets to stylish throws in your home.

  • Great Book :-)5

    Shara Lambeth This is a really great book for beginners and more advanced crocheters alike. I have been crocheting for many, many years & teach crochet professionally and this is the book that I most often refer to.
    Not only is it great if you want to make blocks for an afghan, blanket or cushion, but it's a great source of inspiration, with it's colour combination and ideas for combining the different squares and patterns. It is also a good resource for MANY different stitch patterns that you can not only use in blocks, but for many other things as they can be simply adapted :-)
    This is the book I recommend to all my crochet students :-) by Shara Lambeth

  • *****Inspirational*****5

    Jemma Georgitsis Looking for something a little more challenging, but not necessarily harder?

    This book contains all the stitch descriptions you'll need, along with colour tips, and texture mix

    Very intuitive layout showing at a glance weather a block is worked in rows or rounds, skill level, colour pallet and suggested complimentary block patterns.

    Copy a throw right out of the book, or use the suggestions as inspiration to create your own unique piece. by Jemma Georgitsis
