Including an inspirational gallery of designs and motifs, this instructional guide teaches all the skills necessary to make beautiful afghans and throws. Clear step-by-step photographs and 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 delicate lace and openwork fabrics. Readers will learn how to read patterns and chart their own unique designs, or use multiple stitch techniques to create bobbles, popcorns, and cables. From stunning effects achieved by combining color, pattern, and texture, to the finishing touches with borders, tassels, beads, and embroidery, handmade afghans are a wonderful palette for experimenting with new techniques.
