Mix and Match Modern Crochet Blankets
100 patterned and textured stripes for 1000's of unique throws. Create one-of-a-kind striped modular blankets with this unique mix-and-match approach.
Featuring 100 crochet strip patterns for modern striped blankets, this book opens up a world of design possibilities for crochet blankets! Making modular blankets is not a new concept, but by crocheting individual strips instead of granny squares you can achieve a much more modern look with pattern, color, and texture variations tailored to suit your style. Working in this modular way makes crocheting blankets achievable, portable, and fun as each strip is worked along the short edge.
Each strip is given in US crochet terms, with a written pattern and chart for making a standard throw-blanket-width strip (40"/100cm across). Advice is given on adjusting the width of the strips for smaller or larger blankets. With chapters including Classic Stitches, Tapestry Crochet, Mosaic Crochet, Texture, Cables and Ribs, and Embellishments, this collection offers almost infinite possibilities to create unique, striped blankets. Five example blankets show different combinations, plus ideas for using the strips like scarves, bags, and homewares.
