Granny squares are to crochet what pieced squares are to quilting. They originated with pioneer 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 crocheter can design her 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.

    By Faith's Favs
    At first glance I thought this was a very helpful book, that is until I seen several pages that are blank where there should have been instructions. There were pictures on some pages with no explanations. It would go from step one then next page nothing then the next step you were on the second round already. Some of the patterns were easy to read while others were not fully or clearly explained. I would not recommend this book until they updated the e book first.
