Product description

Over 100 different blanket squares can be knitted up to create a dozen unique afghans in a variety of styles. Projects range from baby's first comfort blanket in subdued pastels, to brightly colored motifs embellished with beads and buttons for the spirited teenager. Full instructions are given for each square including expert advice on how to knit with several colors, plus how to bead with confidence. And step-by-step instructions show you how to piece the squares together to create your finished afghan. You can follow the patterns given for the twelve designs, or have fun experimenting with your own choice of squares selected from the 100 different designs offered to create your own unique afghan. There is a rich assortment of designs to choose from combining a range of knitting techniques from intarsia through to textured stitches, some knitted in clean, matt cottons, and others in soft, hairy winter yarns. Fabulous in-close color photographs of each individual square, and a full color picture of the finished afghan show off these knitted treasures in all their glorious detail. All skill levels are represented - if you want something easy but beautiful, you'll find it here, but you'll also find projects, which test your skills.
