Description

With Blankets and Throws To Knit, Debbie Abrahams teaches you how to create a dozen unique afghans in a variety of styles, with over 100 different blanket squares to choose from.

Projects range from baby's first comfort blanket in subdued pastels, to brightly coloured motifs embellished with beads and buttons for the spirited teenager. Full instructions are given for each square including expert advice on how to knit with several colours, plus how to bead with confidence. Moreover, step-by-step instructions show you how to piece the squares together to create the finished afghan.

You can follow the patterns given for the twelve designs, or experiment with your own choice of squares to create a one-of-a-kind treasure that can be passed on from generation to generation.

From the eye-popping Candy Mixture to the pastel perfection Queen of Hearts, each design combines a range of techniques and textures in a variety of sumptuous yarns. Fabulous in-close 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.
