Technique - Needlework & Plastic Canvas
Diamonds are forever!
If you have ever used a sewing needle, you can make a wonderful monk's cloth afghan. Even children and those who consider themselves all thumbs enjoy this easy craft, also known as Swedish Weaving. All you need is a yarn needle, regular worsted weight yarn, a piece of monk's cloth and a few hours of your time.
In very little time, you can learn to follow the charts and create these beautiful designs on soft, cotton monk's cloth fabric. Included in the book are eight pages of illustrated how-to instructions and the charts and instructions for eight gorgeous afghans, each featuring a diamond pattern between the heavily stitched area on the ends and the less elaborate design in the middle.
People may say that diamonds are forever, but these diamonds mean that it doesn't take forever. You'll love stitching these fun designs. 24 pages.
