Freebie Friday: Chevron Throw from Loom Knitting Afghans

chevron throw Have you tossed that toasty-warm comforter into storage yet? It’s getting pretty hot and humid for us here at SMP Craft, so all we really need on our beds now is a light, colorful afghan–one just like this gorgeous chevron throw! Which is great, because it’s this week’s Freebie Friday project from the newest book in Isela Phelps’s loom-knitting series: Loom Knitting Afghans.

Whether you’re new to loom knitting or a serial afghan knitter looking for some new exciting projects, this book has lots to delve into, from blankets featuring graphic chevron patterns (like this one!) or a variety of stitches and textures, to easy patchwork throws or blankets showcasing intricate cables and lace patterns. As the projects are arranged from beginner to advanced, new loom knitters can progress through the designs while learning and mastering techniques along the way. guitar throw

Isela provides the clear, easy-to-follow instructions her books are known for, and shares hints and tips for how to choose the right loom and yarn for a project. An illustrated introductory chapter explains and demonstrates everything you need to know about loom knitting and serves as a great refresher course. A finishing section helps you achieve expert results and provides instructions for how to personalize your designs with a range of embellishments.
