Product description

A charming collection of square, triangular, diamond-shaped, and hexagonal blocks, all with a floral theme: from traditional blanket squares with petals and rosebuds to colourful blocks with three-dimensional flowers and butterflies, there's something here to inspire every knitter. Great for crafters "on-the-go": it's easy to carry with you just what you need to work a few blocks while travelling, commuting, or meeting friends. When all the blocks are complete, you can assemble the whole project at leisure. Includes: written patterns and corresponding charts; a "Useful Techniques" section for anyone who wants to brush up their knitting skills; "Creative Projects" to help you to make your choice of blocks, yarns, and colours to create your own versions of the projects illustrated.

Review quote

This is a wonderful collection of floral blocks to knit from one of the best in the business. The collection includes flowers, leaves, colour work, texture, lace and more. There are seven projects that you will want to use. It's easy to make your own projects by repeating the blocks or mixing and matching. This is a very versatile book. I liked the snowdrop and quarto leaves blocks the best. I also like the Pansy knitting bag.-Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts Even if you haven't got the greenest fingers, this book can help you surround yourself with beautiful flowers this spring. With textured, intarsia and 3D designs, there are knitted blocks for every kind of project in this book. Author Lesley Stanfield also provides a selection of patterns making use of the blocks, from simple hats to heirloom blankets. You'll see the humble block in a new light after viewing these beautiful designs!-The Knitter One book, 75 designs and endless project ideas. Mix and match the blocks to make a range of kitted projects, from baby blankets and cushion covers to tote bags. All of the blocks are floral in design, but that's where the similarity ends, as each is beautifully unique. Some feature flowers and butterflies, others 3D flowers - and much more besides. They make ideal on-the-go projects as they're small enough to pop in your handbag, and their size means they're a good way to try out new techniques.-Knit Today
