Summary

Moving beyond the basic granny square to encompass a wide variety of shapes and patterns, the crochet designs featured in this book are surprisingly quick, easy, and simple to master. Granny “squares” can easily become hexagons, triangles, pentagons, and circles, and can be fashioned into everything from blankets and potholders to pillows and fingerless gloves, from rugs and placemats to headbands and hacky sacks, using these innovative and colorful patterns. Granny Squares—All Shapes and Sizes presents twenty-six inspiring projects, with detailed instructions on how to become proficient in more than 30 new crochet techniques—everything a crocheter needs to keep up with the modern granny!
