Building Blocks by Michelle Hunter is a series of 12 fun patterns that will build your knitting skills – and a beautiful afghan! Starting with simple knit and purl stitches, your confidence will grow as you progress through several major knitting principles. Each block focuses on new stitches and techniques in a sequential fashion that “builds” upon the previously learned skill.

At the end of the series, the knitter is rewarded with an abundance of knitting know-how and 12 beautiful squares to assemble into a sampler afghan, baby blanket, pillows or anything limited only by your imagination! The finished afghan measures (blocked) about 38” (90cm) x 50” (128 cm)

A 35 pages book is included in the kit. As an added bonus, all the techniques featured in this book are supported with FREE online video instruction.

DROPS Air is a very light and cozy yarn from 72% alpaca, 21% Polyamid, 7% wool. This makes the afghan especially light, but very warm as well. See more information below.

more informationDROPS Air is - as its name says - a very airy yarn that feels beautiful against the skin, which makes it perfect for accessories, shawls, sweaters and jackets in both textured and cable patterns. Garments made in DROPS Air are totally itch-free, which means everyone can wear them! So is a blanket knit in Air.

DROPS Air is a new and exciting "blow yarn" made from soft baby alpaca and cozy and warm merino wool. Its construction is unique, based on the newest yarn technologies, where instead of spinning, the fibres of baby alpaca and merino wool are air blown into a tube, which makes the garments or blankets made in this yarn about 30-35% lighter than those made with conventional spun yarns of the same thickness.
