Hubert (The Granny Square Book) returns with a second dose of granny squares in this colorful collection of crochet motifs inspired by nature. Many of the projects require intermediate to advanced crochet skills, and each design includes both written and charted directions as well as a color photograph of the finished square. An assortment of 15 projects incorporating the squares in the book completes the package. Some feature interesting and unexpected uses of the motifs, such as the tasseled ski hat (the squares make up the ear flaps) and the children's blocks and coordinating hassock. VERDICT Granny squares are the building blocks of crochet, and this work contains a number of pretty designs that are ready to mix and match." Library Journal"
