By Darla Sims - Do you love the Old-World look of a cabled sweater? Then why not crochet an afghan with the same rich, romantic patterns? Sixty-three pattern stitches come together to create this heirloom-quality sampler afghan. For the matching square pillow, simply assemble four blocks for the front and create a single large block for the back. Or fashion a soft and elegant bolster pillow using sections of several pattern stitches. This compendium of cable designs is only the latest volume in the Leisure Arts stitch library. A world of touchable, crocheted texture awaits your discovery on every one of the 60 pages. Vicki’s note: I like this book because you can also use these stitch designs in other woolen articles like jumpers, scarves and beanies and if you are a threadie and prefer the finer threads, then you can also make runners, doilies, tablecloths and more. Another must have book.
