Rediscover crochet! Choose from more than 200 fabulous block patterns - from Art Deco-inspired geometric designs to traditional checkerboard stripes and elaborate motifs - to make blankets, throws, and accessories that are functional and decorative. Employing traditional styles and contemporary colors, crocheted blocks inspire the crafter to create a dynamic palette of color, pattern, and texture by mixing, matching, and combining. Step-by-step instructions accompany each pattern, along with stunning photographs that encourage crafters to explore a range of color combinations and coordinates - neutrals with accents, colors from nature, and color schemes inspired by the gorgeous floral hues of Tiffany, disciplined shades from the Art Nouveau movement, and the vibrant primary colors favored by America's Jazz Age. A directory of blocks is cross-referenced by symbols that describe the techniques used and the degree of difficulty, and each pattern is designed so that finished blocks are all the same size when they're worked in yarn of the same weight. A useful refresher course of crochet stitches and techniques is included, as well as patterns for edgings and instructions on making fringes to finish off afghans in style.

Customer Reviews

not what it claims to be Review by cookielu

This book's title says 200 blocks. I am thinking 200 unique blocks, logical conclusion, isn't it? Unfortunately many blocks are repeated and the only difference is yarn color. Very disappointing.
However, the blocks that are there are nice. I'm still searching the Interweave web site for the list of corrections though - too bad they don't make them easy to find.
