A granny square is a piece of square fabric produced in crochet by working in rounds from the center outward. Granny squares are made separately and then assembled to create a blanket. Since you work on small pieces one at a time, this technique is perfect for those who are new to crocheting.
A crocheting basics section provides techniques, abbreviations, and the instructions needed to make the 12 granny square projects included in this step-by-step booklet.
Margaret Hubert is the author of more than 20 crochet and knitting books, including Plus Size Crochet, Knits for Men, Knit or Crochet--Have It Your Way, The Complete Photo Guide to Crochet, The Complete Photo Guide to Knitting, The Granny Square Book, Lacework for Adventurous Crocheters, and Runway Crochet. She has enjoyed a lifelong career designing both crochet and knit patterns for yarn companies and book and magazine publishers.
Hubert also teaches at yarn shops, retreats, and national gatherings, and rarely misses a national conference in the needle arts field. A world traveler, Hubert pays close attention to the fashions in Europe and spots trends as they hit New York.
