Fair Isle isn't just for knitters When you crochet these five afghans, you'll easily get the same richly detailed look as knitted Fair Isle designs. It's as simple as using single crochet stitches and following our full-color stitch charts The Southwest Warmth afghan offers muted sunset colors and is a perfect gift for a man. The Girl's Cozy Afghan is a vivid palette that includes purple and pink. The boys in the house will enjoy the Kid's Winter Warmer in orange, yellow, blue, and green. For babies, there is a soft flurry of snowflakes or a shower of sweet hearts.
5 crochet designs by Karen Ratto-Whooley for Intermediate skill level, using medium weight yarn for 3 designs and light weight for the 2 baby designs.
