Unexpected Afghans by Robyn Chachula is a book full of BEAUTIFUL designs by many of the top designers in the industry. This is a truly unique home decor book from Interweave. It is truly a step above the rest and showcases incredible designs and skill.
Robyn joins me to talk about the book and some of the great designs. Some designers were given a specific project request. Could Drew do a cabled afghan? Would Doris Chan do a giant doily for an afghan? Having an original creative design from each designer is so impressive!
There are 5 different chapters in the book: Lace, Granny Squares, Cables, Colorwork and Tunisian. Helpful tips will allow for even beginners to get their feet wet with each technique. This book has something for crocheters of all abilities!
Marly’s afghan in the book is the “Damask Afghan”, which is also the biggest project in the book. There are three panels each with a lace section. It is a giant project, but you work on one panel at a time, so you are not carrying a massive project around with you!
