Last week we introduced some of the gorgeous crochet work that appears in Comfort
Knitting & Crochet: Afghans, an exciting new pattern collection from the Berroco Design Team and Stewart, Tabori and Chang. This week, we’d like to highlight the 27 knit designs with a second audio slideshow. The book includes over 50 afghan patterns (evenly split between knit and crochet), all made using yarns from the Berroco Comfort® family in Comfort® DK, Comfort® and Comfort® Chunky weights. The soft, machine-washable blend is a natural choice for well-loved items in your life. Every decor can find its perfect match in the range of over 100 shades. The sturdy softcover book is filled with inspiring settings and clear photographs. Each afghan is prefaced with detailed design notes, thorough instructions and clear illustrations. The suggested retail price is US $19.95 (CAN $25.95). Here are just a few of my favorite knit afghans from the book:
You can see many more by visiting our pattern preview page or watching the audio slideshows, one devoted to the knit afghans and one devoted to crochet. Also visit our
