Comments: This book is really making me want to knit an entire counterpane (also known as a bedspread).  I'm loving these little knit from the centre squares that are used to join the larger panels together (many of the panels are hexagonal/octagonal, hence the need for the filler squares in the middles, and filler triangles for the edges).   Maybe I'll make some of the main panels next - if I make them in cotton, they'll make lovely dishcloths!
