Description

Want to learn how to crochet? Make a granny square! The simple techniques have lasted for decades and now they are trendier than ever. With endless colour and size variations, creating these squares is fun and easy. They can be used like building blocks and combined with other squares to make original projects and gifts or used to embellish larger items.

This book will show you how to create twenty different squares, including flower patterns, interpreted in different colours and yarns to create a kaleidoscope of effects. Also included are projects that show you how to make the squares into a simple baby blanket, arm warmers, a purse, a pin cushion, a mug cosy and a stylish pair of boot toppers. DMC yarns as well as fancy yarns are used, all of which are readily available, and both US and UK crochet abbreviations are used throughout.

About Val Pierce
