Title: 75 Knitted Floral Blocks: Beautiful Patterns to Mix and Match for Throws, Accessories, Baby Blankets and More
This exciting collection features knitted blocks in all shapes and sizes, each with a floral theme, some taken from traditional sources and many completely new designs.
Offering a mixture of knitting techniques from intarsia and color work to raised effects and open, lacy stitches, the blocks also range from simple corner-to-corner squares to geometric shapes worked in the round. Each design includes written instructions and, where appropriate, charts with symbols or colors. Includes a “Useful Techniques” section to help improve your knitting skills.
Ideas and inspiration for combining blocks to create a range of beautiful projects, from chunky yarn cushions to patchwork throws.
