Synopsis

Crocheted Throws & Wraps 25 Throws, Wraps and Blankets to Crochet by Melody Griffiths

The designs for this stunning collection of crocheted afghans, comforters, blankets and more are inspired by a whole range of sources, from vintage fabrics and patchwork to beadwork and traditional knits, and include a lace wrap, Shaker-style throw, wild rose afghan and tartan rug. There are blankets inspired by the great outdoors incorporating elements of nature such as flowers and rainbows, as well as motifs, taken from the crafts of different countries and interpreted in crochet. All the information you need is here, provided in a way that is so simple to understand, with charts and detailed instructions for 25 projects, plus 10 extra ideas for ways of using the same instructions to make larger or smaller items, such as bed covers or pillows. And don't be afraid of the professional, luscious look of the blankets you see in the photos - the designs have been created with simplicity in mind, so even novice crocheters will produce exquisite pieces in no time at all. Many of the projects are made up of small, easy-to-work-with squares and motifs, so you can carry on crafting while on the move.
