Whether they are called blankets or throws, warm and colorful afghans are an ever popular item for the home and project for knitters, and this guide takes knitters from the basics of creating afghan squares through the mechanics of laying out those squares in a design to the final product. Four project patterns?two that combine texture and color, one with cables, and one for kids?are included. Step-by-step illustrations are featured for stitches such as intarsia, duplicate stitch, cable and twist stitches, modular, entrelac, and two-color stranding. Both written and charted pattern directions, finishing hints, and border treatments are also provided. Since squares are made one at a time, crafters can easily transport projects and switch up designs any time.
