Berroco Bright Star Afghan Kit PRE-ORDER
THIS KIT IS A PRE-ORDER (see details below)
Inspired by the intricate piecing of patchwork quilts, the large, brightly coloured stars in this afghan are mainly composed of mitered squares. Since the colour changes within the squares are all in straight, intuitive lines, this is a perfect project on which to learn intarsia. The straight lines also make the chart easy to memorize, so you can comfortably engage in conversation as you work.
