We designed our first afghan over twenty-five years ago and have travelled a long
way since then. We now have more than eighty. Many of the afghans have stories behind
them related to the use of mathematics and the construction techniques.
In the following pages we have tried to collect together some information to give
you an insight into how a designer’s brain works. The information has been collated
from several sources, some of which have previously appeared in print. Some were
well documented; others rely on vague memories.
We have attempted to tell the story in chronological order though this may not always
be completely accurate. We have missed out information about all our non-afghan creations,
even though these were sometimes influential in our development.
You can navigate your way through the stories in a variety of ways:
Forward and back arrows
A drop-down alphabetical list
A search box
Most pages also have several external links:
The relevant afghan page on our main site, where you may find more photos and mathematical
Places where you can buy the pattern - Ravelry, Payhip, Lovecrafts. (On Ravelry you
will find more information about size, yarn, construction, etc. and be able to see
a few other versions of the completed afghan
