A follow-up to the outstandingly-successful Blankets & Throws, Debbie Abrahams' new book has over 100 different blanket squares that can be knitted up to create a dozen unique blankets or throws in a variety of styles. The brand new projects range from baby's first comfort blanket in bright blocks, to subtle motifs embellished with beads and buttons for the style-conscious teenager. Full instructions are given for each square, including expert advice on how to knit with several colours and how to bead with confidence. Follow the patterns given for twelve great afghan designs, or have fun experimenting by choosing from the rich assortment of squares to create your own unique afghan. The designs combine a range of knitting techniques, from intarsia through to textured stitches, with some knitted in clean, matt cottons, and others in soft, hairy winter yarns. Fabulous, close-up colour photographs of each individual square, and a full colour picture of the finished afghan, show off these knitted treasures in all their glorious detail. Clear, step-by-step instructions show you how to piece the squares together to create your finished afghan.
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.
