Knitted Angel Afghan

"Angel blocks, star blocks, and small diamonds are crocheted together to make this heavenly afghan," says Epstein. "A duplicate stitch along with embroidery and a connecting crochet stitch are the techniques used. The border is a bold rib stitch, and the four corners are adorned by four wrapped tassels with knitted gold necks. An alternate version with a white background is also shown." This magnificent piece is distilled Epstein: the wonderful use of intarsia, the sumptuous colours, and the sensual depth of the fabric all combine to make a treasure for your living room or bedroom. Epstein notes that the original yarn has been discontinued, and suggests Cascade 220 as a substitute (or whatever yarn gives you gauge).
