Since it was first published in 2011, The Granny Square Book has instructed and inspired more than 70,000 crocheters to make and create beautiful, stylish projects with these classic motifs. Now designer and author Margaret Hubert has updated her bestselling and beloved book to include 25 additional crochet squares (for a total of 100!) and 25 all-new projects to make, wear, and give.
Margaret 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. Among the designs are accessories (headbands, bags, and jewelry); garments (vests, jackets, and tops); and decorative items and gifts (afghans, pillows, and a sweater set for baby). The Granny Square Book, Second Edition, offers crocheters at all skill levels more, and more to love about, this timeless motif.
