Who doesn’t love Granny Squares? I learned how to crochet making granny squares. They’re fast, and easy. But after a while, making the same basic granny can get a little old (pun intended!).
I recently found a new crochet book that solves the granny boredom issue. It’s conveniently called The Granny Square Book by Margaret Hubert. Any book that has this many tabbed projects is a winner:
There are over 100 unique versions of a granny square for you to try and ideas for using your grannies. Good info. on seaming, too – why do I always forget how to do that? Plus, each pattern has both the graphed version and the written out version.
My favorites from the book are the granny patterns that include a flower in the middle (Emma and Ciara are so pretty!). Those can be used to create a fun pillow, or a whole afghan.
If you’re in a granny square rut, I’d highly recommend this book. It’s also a great resource for anyone just starting out in crochet – the projects range in difficulty from beginner to advanced, so there’s something for everyone. You can find it here at Amazon. Learn more at QuartoKnows.com
