Book Review: Granny Square Book

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:

The Granny Square Book

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
