Crochet these colorful and stylish home accessories with 35 patterns by young designer Laura Strutt, author of the best-selling Modern Crocheted Shawls and Wraps.

Laura Strutt brings you a range of new designs for afghans, blankets, throws, and pillow covers. Divided by color theme—Bright and Beautiful, Warm and Rich, and Neutral and Natural—with modern designs, there is something for every home, whatever your decorating style.

Make a rainbow granny circle blanket using rich, bright yarns, or try a chunky striped throw in soft neutrals. A wrap-around granny square makes the perfect cover for a floor pillow, while block stitch shows off bright pastels in a square afghan. Patterns are graded so you can start with something simple if you are a beginner, or select something more advanced if you are skilled with a hook and yarn.
