Description
With an inspirational gallery of designs and motifs and step-by-step color photos and diagrams throughout, this instructional guide teaches all the skills necessary to make beautiful afghans and throws. Complete stitching instructions are cross-referenced with the techniques in the book, which include choosing yarns, basic knitting and crochet stitches, Fair Isle and intarsia techniques, making and piecing blocks and strips, and creating lace and openwork fabrics. Here too are instructions on how to read patterns and chart your own designs, or use multiple stitch techniques to create bobbles, popcorns, and cables, as well as finishing touches like borders, tassels, beads, and embroidery.

"Goes through the process step by step and offers up literally hundreds of creative ideas that will keep your hands busy for years to come."—Crochet Today
