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.

Monk's Cloth Diamond Afghans

Being able to purchase these patterns online is a definite plus for me, as there are few craft stores with Swedish Weave supplies or books within an hour or more drive from home. The pdf came through immediately and was simple to download and print. Thanks, Annie's, for a new supply of patterns to try for my favourite hobby.

I was so excited to get this in PDF form as I couldn't find the book anywhere. The illustrations were great and very easy to follow instructions. This was a good choice.

I was excited to find this book in PDF form. It's out of print and very expensive if you can find it. The instructions are very good and clear. I do smocking so this was an easy and very enjoyable craft. Thank you Annie's for making crafting easy with a wide variety of quality tools and books.

This book is clearly written and I have been able to recreate an afghan pattern from my youth.
