Mix + Match Crochet Blankets - Esme Crick
launching in August 2023!
We are super excited to have Esme at Loop teaching her Mosaic Sampler workshop in the new Year! Dates tbc soon.
Create one-of-a-kind striped modular blankets with this unique mix-and-match approach.
Featuring 100 crochet band patterns for modern stripe blankets, this book opens up a world of design possibilities for crochet blankets, as you how you choose to combine the bands is completely up to you!
Making modular blankets is not a new concept, but most books tend to focus on granny squares to do this. By crocheting individual bands instead, you can achieve a much more modern look, with pattern, colour and texture variations tailored to suit your individual style. Working in this modular way makes blankets achievable, portable and fun.
Each band pattern is given in US crochet terms, with written pattern and chart for making a standard throw-blanket-width band (50in across). Advice is given on changing the width of the bands for smaller or larger blankets.
As well as the 100 bands, there are 5 example blankets showing different combinations of bands, plus additional ideas for using the bands in other ways, such as table runners, bolster pillows, and trims for a wide range of projects.
