A career in structural engineering may seem a far cry from crochet design, but for me it doesn?t matter if I am building a concrete building or a granny square blanket. My approach to designing them is the same. I take a big project and break it down into little items that I can understand, then piece them back together for the big picture.
In my book Blueprint Crochet: Modern Designs for the Visual Crocheter (Interweave Press, 2008), I used my engineering background and crochet symbols to bring crochet to new learners. Robyn?s latest book, Unexpected Afghans, from Interweave Press 2012, shows how to use classic crochet techniques for astoundingly innovative afghans. She is incredibly thankful to be able to design and write from home in Pittsburgh, PA while playing with her little ?office assistants?. She is also the author of Baby Blueprint Crochet, Simply Crochet, and Crochet Stitches Visual Encyclopedia (Wiley 2011).
Loosely based on traditional diamond quilts mixed with
inspiration from gothic stained glass windows, this baby
blanket will leave any new parent in awe of your wonderful
gift for the new little one. The quilt is made in motifs that are crocheted together once they are all finished. Pattern has both written and crochet diagrams for motifs, and also includes 2 different layouts.
