Square, iconic, and creative, granny squares can be beautiful designs in themselves, but this book goes further with instructions on joining them together to create more than 20 modern projects. Affectionately called “grannies” by their fans, these crocheted squares can be quickly made with endless color variants and combinations of yarns and stitches. Ideas for big and small granny square showpieces are provided with precise instructions for all basic techniques and patterns. The individual squares can be easily joined together and thorough instructions are provided for making wonderfully colorful bags, gifts, beautiful home accessories, or snuggly throws. With the help of this project book, each square is a little work of art that can stand alone or be multiplied and joined together to form useful and beautiful creations.
