Granny squares are a crochet classic for a reason: they're colourful, quick to crochet, and fun to make! But the true potential of these design standbys comes in the infinite possibilities offered by their patterning - and the manner in which they're combined.
Clever Crochet Squares: Artistic Ways to Create Grannies by Maria Gullberg explores a whole new side to the familiar granny square, showing every crocheter how to create fresh, exciting projects by joining granny squares to form fascinating textures, eye-catching colour effects, and more! Evoke the sweet beauty of wildflowers, the simple elegance of woven twill, or the complexity of twisting labyrinths and striking optical illusions. With crochet patterns designed for both the novice and the experienced crocheter, full-color photographs, and clear instructions, you'll be ready to tackle pillows, bags, rugs, blankets - anything you'd make with granny squares can work magic, if you're willing to think outside the box!
