Book Description

Crochet these colourful and stylish home accessories with 35 patterns by young designer Laura Strutt, author of the best-selling Modern Crocheted Shawls and Wraps.

Laura Strutt brings you a range of new designs for blankets, throws, and cushion covers. Divided by colour theme Bright and Beautiful, Warm and Rich, and Neutral and Natural with modern designs, there is something for every home, whatever your decorating style. Make a rainbow granny circle blanket using rich, bright yarns, or try a chunky striped throw in soft neutrals. A wrap-around granny square makes the perfect cover for a floor cushion, while block stitch shows off bright pastels in a square blanket. Patterns are graded so you can start with something simple if you are a beginner, or select something more advanced if you are skilled with a hook and yarn.
