Projects range from baby's first comfort blanket in subdued pastels, to brightly coloured motifs embellished with beads and buttons for the spirited teenager. Full instructions are given for each square including expert advice on how to knit with several colours, plus how to bead with confidence. And step-by-step instructions show you how to pieces the squares together to create your finished afghan. You can follow the patterns given for the twelve designs, or have fun experimenting with your own choice of squares selected from the 100 different designs offered to create your own unique afghan. There is a rich assortment of designs to source from combining a range of knitting techniques from intarsia through to textured stitches, some knitted in clean, matt colours, and others in soft, hairy winter yarns. Fabulous in-close colour photographs of each individual square and a full colour picture of the finished afghan show off these knitted treasures in all their glorious detail. All skill levels are represented - if you want something easy but beautiful, you'll find it here, but you'll also find projects which test your skills.

This is a beautifully produced and presented book and would be great for anyone wanting to knit a throw or rug with a difference. The selection of squares is marvellous. The photos are quite useful so you can see what the finished throw could look like, usually in two colour options. The patterns are accessible even for an inexperienced knitter, though you will need to be persistent to follow some of the charts. Predictably, the themes are all European and the pictures are very British such as bathing huts on shingle beaches. I would really like to see a book like this with a more Australian theme. There must be designers out there who could put something together.
