A granny square is a simple technique that has been used to learn crochet for years but is now trendier than ever, and this guide demonstrates how to easily create these hip squares in endless color and size variations to make original projects and gifts or embellish larger items. The 20 different squares, including flower patterns, can be interpreted in different colors and yarns to create a kaleidoscope of effects. Also included are six projects that crocheters can use to turn their squares into a baby blanket, arm warmers, a purse, a pin cushion, a mug cozy, and a stylish pair of boot toppers. DMC yarns as well as fancy yarns are used, all of which are readily available, and both U.S. and UK crochet abbreviations are listed throughout.
Twenty granny square patterns, each with alternative colourways, that are easy and fun to make.
