Product description

Create gorgeous afghans and more with this amazing choice of 200 knitted block patterns to mix and match. From geometric designs to multi-hued blocks, you'll discover new ways to play with colour, pattern and texture. Choose from easy to advanced knitting patterns, from simple knit and purl designs to more elaborate cable, lace and bobble blocks. Use 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. Also learn how to finish your blocks in style with patterns for fringes, ruffles and other decorative edgings. This book has everything you need to create unique afghans, wall hangings and accessories; from knitting techniques and step-by-step instructions for 200 decorative blocks to inspiration and advice for planning your design and creating a finished piece. Each block is labelled with at-a-glance symbols that tell you instantly what techniques are used to create the block and the level of difficulty so both experienced and new knitters can pick and choose blocks according to their confidence. This invaluable knitting block library will be used time and time again from simple baby blankets to stylish throws in your home.
