are lots of books on granny squares, but if you are anything
like me, you prefer something with lots of color in it rather
than a plain square, then this is the book for you.
There are a hundred of these bright squares in here to make.
I was surprised that the word "crochet" was not
on the cover but this is what this book is about. Fortunately,
there are quite a few pages at the beginning to show you how
to do it, read charts, block and add edgings for anybody who
thought they were getting a book on knitting.
is even a pair of pages dedicated to showing you how to read
the book for best results. Each pattern is a double page spread
where you can find out what you need to buy and how much exactly,
a variation and what it looks like made up. You can even find
tables showing you the yarn requirement for a baby blanket,
lap blanket or bed throw for real attention to detail. Charts
are given plus written instructions; these work in tandem
rather than an "either, or," so anybody new to them
needs to look at the part at the beginning showing how to
read them. Total beginners would be better learning elsewhere,
but anybody with even a little crochet experience will be
able to crochet up a storm in no time, and it is a great way
to practice as squares make up fast. A good book for anybody
who wants to make some very eye-catching granny squares.
