Inside, Haafner takes her readers on a journey into the world of crocheting stripes. These patterns are relaxing to create (taking readers into a state of what psychologists call ‘flow’) as they are pleasingly repetitive, can be worked up quickly and don’t have lots of ends to sew in. The patterns for the 20 beautiful stripy blankets vary from simple designs that use only the most basic stitches perfect for an absolute beginner to more complex creations that use special stitches. Furthermore, each project comes with a written pattern, chart, colour advice and instructions for making it in a variety of sizes, ideal for making presents for little ones as well as your grown-up friends and family! You’ll also find all the basic crochet techniques clearly explained if you need to learn or refresh your crochet knowledge.
