Dare to Be Square Afghans
We are adding the pattern to your Afghan Patterns.
This project has been added to your afghan patterns.
An amazing tradition my mother has kept up with, as I'm sure many of you have done as well, is making a baby blanket for every new grandchild that enters the world. My mom is a grandma to 11 kids and each of them has their own knit blanket to remember her by many years from now. Whether you want to work up baby blanket or a beautiful crochet afghan or throw, you can find many patterns in Dare to Be Square Afghans from Leisure Arts.
When it's time to snuggle up next to the fireplace or simply show off your home decor, you'll want to have one of these throws ready to display. This 32-page book allows you to enjoy the ease of making fabulous throws in one big square using patterns that give the look of quilt-inspired compositions and motifs. There are 8 crochet afghan patterns within the book.
Each pattern has a shopping list of materials, a stitch guide, gauge information and full instructions to make the pattern. Each blanket is made of rich colors, with some resembling the look of patchwork quilts. If you're looking to go a little different with your style then you must check out this book.
My favorite design is on page 9, called Jewels. The color sequins are made of Blue, Wine, Green and Gold, which is a fabulous combination. The treble stitch is used to work up this design and it is just stunning.
Need to give a gift? The afghans in this book will work perfectly. Although, you might have a difficult time giving it away once it's complete.
