CHAPTER ONE- Knit Squares and Blocks
- Candy Stole- This brightly colored shawl in a rainbow of candy colors is based on squares built one upon another in a series of diagonal panels
- Pyramid Pillow- This unusual pillow is constructed from two sixty-four-square blocks, worked in a checkerboard fashion.
CHAPTER TWO- Join Two Blocks into a Pouch
- Two-Block Hat- This well-fitted hat shows how easy it is to join blocks together to make a three-dimensional shape. This two-block hat is finished in a garter stitch edging with straps that tie under the chin.
- Heart Purse- This purse was inspired by the braided paper hearts made Famous by Hans Christian Andersen. A bright and cheerful bag, this bag is knitted felt and appropriate all year round.
- Backpack- This clever backpack is formed from two blocks that are joined along two sides to make a "pocket" at the base of the bag.
- Slippers- These comfy slippers, in four different variations, are adapted from traditional Faroese-Icelandic shoes. Felt the slippers in the washing machine to shrink them to size and brush on a layer of latex on the soles to give them a non-slip surface.
CHAPTER THREE- Join Three Blocks into a Pouch
- Three-Block Cap- This jester-style cap is made of three blocks (each with three squares) that are joined together into a point to form the crown.
- Dotted Tea Cozy- This striking tea cozy can be flipped upside down, replace the top loop with a tassel, and you've got a little purse instead.
- Cape with Fringe- This airy cape is based on three-block construction with innovative shoulder shaping.
CHAPTER FOUR- Join Four Blocks into a Square
- Four-Block Hat- The top of this tam-like cap is four four-square blocks that are joined together to form a large square shape for the crown.
- Afghan- This colorful afghan, contributed by Norwegian designer Margit Henriksen, shows how easy it is to join four blocks into a large rectangle.
- Bucket Bag- This roomy bag is constructed like the Four-Block Cap, but in this case the initial four blocks form the bag base and the additional squares are worked around the four-block in a cup shape.
- Rosebud Duffel- A lengthen bucket bag with pointed sides, this bag's base is worked in a solid color, and the edging and the strap are knit separately before it's all felted to produce a rosebud motif.
CHAPTER FIVE- Knit Incomplete Squares and Blocks
- Pillows with Tabs- This pillow cover is a modified sixty-six-square block of incomplete squares that alternate between black and charcoal checkerboard fashion and accented with two brightly colored "squares."
- Abstract Stole- This stunning stole shows what fun you can have knitting panels of incomplete squares. This nine-panel example of twenty-nine incomplete squares has a zigzag pattern of five colors of wool.
- Bobble Scarf- This unusual bobble scarf is constructed much the same as the Candy Stole but with incomplete squares that are worked in panels that grow along the diagonal.
