The Granny Square Book, 2nd Ed, Margaret Hubert
Margaret Hubert has updated her bestselling The Granny Square Book to include 25 additional crochet squares (for a total of 100!) and 25 all-new projects to make, wear, and give.
This updated second edition of The Granny Square Book offers crocheters at all skill levels even more to love about granny squares--featuring 25 brand new squares, and 25 all-new projects.
Granny squares are to crochet what pieced squares are to quilting. They originated with women using up precious scraps of yarn to make blankets for their families, and over the years, many recognized, named patterns have been handed down from one generation to the next.
Beyond this treasury of 75 different granny square motifs, Margaret Hubert shows the evolution of the granny square, how it can be used and interpreted in different ways with different yarns, and how today's crocheters can design their own projects using the granny squares of her choice with the yarn choices of today.
Just as Margaret learned from her grandmother and mother and then passed the skill down to her daughter and granddaughter, each generation finds new uses and artistic ways to interpret granny squares.
