This leaflet features 9 crocheted afghans, all worked in Lion Brand's Homespun® yarn. Photographed at the historic New England mill where this textured yarn is spun, the afghans run the gamut from Easy to Intermediate. The rich Cream color highlights the lacy motifs in "Classic Elegance." Contemporary styling is reflected in both color and pattern in the "Modern Edge Afghan" and the "Stripey Quilt Throw." Traditional patterns, like Granny Squares and Ripples look fresh and inviting when stitched in the complex color shadings of Homespun yarn. "Colorful Wheels Afghan" has seven colors and will suit a variety of decorating styles. The rich colors of the mill itself are found in the "Pennant Flag Afghan." A two-tone "Falling Leaves Afghan" is shown in very contemporary Apple Green and Plum. And finally, we have the "Roundabout Afghan," a unique afghan worked in the round, featuring warm and cool colors teaming together. Lots of textile mill photography and a description of how the yarn is actually spun makes this leaflet a fun, informative read as well as a great set of patterns.
