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 designs!
Nearly all of these patterns are actually full-blown tutorials with many step-by-step photos. If you don't need that level of hand-holding, you can get some of the patterns by themselves.
