The Afghan Cane consists of sixteen polymer clay "granny squares" assembled in a grid, much like a crocheted afghan would be. Unlike the crocheted version, though, we don't have to create sixteen individual granny squares to make a colorful blanket. Through the magic of polymer color blends, we can generate a multitude of differently-colored squares with a single cane!
Through this fully-illustrated 14-page PDF you will learn:
*How to choose colors that will look nice together and provide the necessary contrast
*How to make a partial blend
*Anatomy of a crocheted granny square
*How to build a polymer cane that mimics the look of a granny square, and re-assemble it to create a 16-square "afghan"
*Ideas for varying the look of the afghan through borders or different color choices

Thank you for your interest in my patterns!
You can find me on my blog, where I enjoy chatting about my artsy adventures with polymer clay, fabric and yarn. There's also a healthy dose of everyday life thrown in there for good measure.
