Overview

The beloved granny square is the crocheter’s foundation for countless projects and is adored for its portability, versatility, and endless variety. With The Granny Square Book, Margaret Hubert showed how the humble granny makes the transition from tried-and-true blankets to all kinds of fashionable garments and accessories. Now, in Granny Square Flowers, Margaret presents 50 all-new granny squares with a botanical theme, then, using beautiful yarns and her keen design sense, she broadens their usefulness to making 15 new projects that will have you saying, “Wow, I didn’t know I could make that with granny squares!”
 
Each granny square is presented in a large, full-color photo accompanied by both written and diagrammed instructions. All sample squares are crocheted in bright colors of smooth cotton yarn to clearly show the stitch patterns. Projects using the floral granny squares include clothing for babies, children, and adults; fashion accessories, home décor items, and gifts. These projects use a wide variety of yarn types, fiber content, and weights—both LYS brands and big box brands—to demonstrate the versatility of granny squares. All yarn descriptions are included in generic terms with gauge and hook size information so you can easily substitute other choices.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"

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"

This is a comprehensive crochet book that's a must-have for anyone who loves flowers and/or granny square projects. You can definitely get a ton of mileage out of these patterns. These crochet patterns have detailed written instructions, a photo of the finished block and a symbol chart for each piece." - Kathryn Vercillo, About.com Crochet
