The Granny Square Book: Timeless Techniques and Fresh Ideas for Crocheting Square by Square


The Granny Square Book: Timeless Techniques and Fresh Ideas for Crocheting Square by Square Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Granny squares are to crochet what pieced squares are to quilting. They originated with pioneer women using up precious scraps of yarn to make blankets for their families, and over the years, many recognized, named patterns have been handed down from one generation to the next. Beyond this treasury of 75 different granny square motifs, Margaret Hubert shows the evolution of the granny square, how it can be used and interpreted in different ways with different yarns, and how today's crocheter can design her own projects using the granny squares of her choice with the yarn choices of today. Just as Margaret learned from her grandmother and mother and then passed the skill down to her daughter and granddaughter, each generation finds new uses and artistic ways to interpret granny squares.

She is the author of 12 other books including five books in the CPi Hooked series, Knits for Men, Plus Size Crochet, Knit or Crochet–Have It Your Way, Complete Photo Guide to Crochet, and Complete Photo Guide to Knitting.
