Book Description

29 July 2005
Create gorgeous afghans and more with this amazing choice of 200 knitted block patterns to mix and match. From geometric designs to multi-hued blocks, you'll discover new ways to play with colour, pattern and texture. Choose from easy to advanced knitting patterns, from simple knit and purl designs to more elaborate cable, lace and bobble blocks. Use blocks in one of the suggested layouts, or design your own – all blocks finish to the same size when worked in the same yarn weight. Also learn how to finish your blocks in style with patterns for fringes, ruffles and other decorative edgings. This book has everything you need to create unique afghans, wall hangings and accessories; from knitting techniques and step-by-step instructions for 200 decorative blocks to inspiration and advice for planning your design and creating a finished piece. Each block is labelled with at-a-glance symbols that tell you instantly what techniques are used to create the block and the level of difficulty so both experienced and new knitters can pick and choose blocks according to their confidence. This invaluable knitting block library will be used time and time again from simple baby blankets to stylish throws in your home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving away from scarves! 14 Feb 2006
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book has inspired me to start knitting something other than scarves in fancy wool[what an addiction!] the clear easy to follow instructions are excellent for even the most fearful novice knitter. The ideas are both classical and contemporary and suggest how you can design your own banket. All the squares are 6inches when knitted on size 8mm needles and double knitting wool. Time to climb into the loft or drag out all those carrier bags from behind the sofa and get knitting. ENJOY!

2.0 out of 5 stars 200 Knitted Blocks 25 May 2009
By P. Hill
Format:Paperback
When I bought this book I was anticipating 200 different knitted block patterns. This was not the case.Many of the blocks are variations on a theme e.g. colourways, so that was disappointing. However, in its favour there is a very good section at the start on design and use of the blocks and several very good examples of throws or blankets knitted from combinaions of block patterns.

2.0 out of 5 stars Isn't that cheating???? 10 Mar 2006
Format:Paperback
I must admit to being a bit dissapointed with this book - it came in the post, I unwrapped it, I opened the cover to the list of all the squares - it started out well, but after about 50 squares the author cops out and just duplicated each one five times or so in five different colours or variations. This was a real let down - I realise that it must be difficult to think of 50 squares, but I'm sure given a stitch dictionary and a couple of hours most of us could come up with some better ideas than having the last half being a case of "no51 - cable stitch square in red and blue, no52-cable stitch square in green and white" etc, etc. If you are looking for a Blanket or Afghan book either buy a stitch dictionary and do the work yourself, or go look under Debbie Abrahams!

4.0 out of 5 stars East to use 14 Jun 2010
Format:Paperback
I got this book recently and am delighted with it .It is set out in easy to follow sections and helps you to design and plan throw of you choice taking into account your own skill level etc .A great book for the knitter full of knitting tips can be used by all the family .I am making a throw for my granson using this book it is based on a nautical theme and have used the button up square as one of the basic squares in the throw but used stars instead of buttons to finish it off. Would recommend .My friend got the authors other book on crochet squares exactly the same but using crochet .

4.0 out of 5 stars A good buy 28 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a beginner I wanted to get a book of block with someone that were challenging, but not too complicated, this was just what I got. I hope to get through quite a few squares in this book, as I slowly improve. A good Buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a fantastic book. 15 Mar 2014
By T. Hatchman VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Got this book for my daughter who is just starting to knit. Never did i imagine it would be full of knitting stitches for her to try, plus of course the great squares to knit up using the same wool and needles. Cant fault it. This will be her easter egg from me. Better than chocolate........well almost lol.
