Product details

This is for those who like unusual constructions. The technique is very like making mitred squares but these shapes are kites.

The effects can be dramatically changed by the choice of colours.

Pros

This is an infinitely variable design. You can use as many, or as few, colours as you want. There are colouring-in sheets for you to plan designs with solid-coloured kites or using two or three stripes in each kite.

You only use one colour at a time.

The maximum number of stitches on the needles is 72 and the number is always reducing.

You can use any yarn, in any thickness.

You can add more shapes to make the afghan bigger.

Instructions are included for changing the size of the shapes.

No sewing.

Cons

You have to pick up stitches for every shape (but it is easy picking-up because each stitch is from the end of a garter ridge).

There are a lot of ends to darn in. (If you make the shapes in single colours you reduce the number of ends.)
