Rainbow Crocheted Afghans: Motif Blankets & Throws
$24.95

SKU# 127973C

This book is for those crocheters who have moved on from the humble granny square and are looking for more complex motifs, in a range of shapes and styles, that can be joined together to create more sophisticated finished pieces. Amanda's blankets, afghans and throws are beautifully worked, and her careful use of color and pattern gives stunning results that are deceptively easy to achieve.

The book begins with some basic instruction on yarns and hooks, how to join motifs, sewing in ends, blocking, and yarn weight and tension, but no instruction on how to crochet, as this is not a beginner's book. For each blanket there is an index of motifs used, accompanied by the instructions for how to make them: both in written form and as a chart. The blocks include a range of shapes including circles, triangles, flowers, stars, diamonds and hexagons. Also provided are the various 'fillers', designed to fill the little gaps between the motifs in the finished blanket or throw. Each project has a full color chart, and takes the reader step by step through how to construct their blanket, block by block. At the end of each of the ten projects are two further color variations.
