    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.

    • Awesome Crochet Book

      This is one of the best crochet books I've ever seen. I showed a copy of it to my crochet teacher and she was so impressed by the variety of granny square patterns that she seemed sad to return it to me. So, I gave it to her as a "thank-you" gift for teaching me the beautiful craft of crochet. I promptly came home and ordered myself another copy. After having seen the book, I just couldn't bear to be without a copy of my own.
