All 6 of the throws in this book use the same technique of Woven Crochet. There are only two stitches required: chain and double crochet. The result is a beautiful fabric that looks quite complex but in fact is astonishingly simple to do. Simply create a mesh and then weave srips into the mesh. Step-by-step written instructions are included in the pattern. Each designs colors represent a branch of our military including the Army, Air Force, Marine Crops, Navy, Coast Gaurd and West Point. All are made using worsted-weight yarn.
