Learn new patterns for granny squares, along with fun, new projects suited for babies and toddlers, with this comprehensive booklet!
Are you a lover of granny squares? This booklet is for you! Included in this 32-page reference are both written and charted instructions for 5 colorful granny squares, along with fashions for babies and toddlers. A granny square, for any newbies to the craft, 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, sweater, hat, or almost any other crocheted item. Since you work on small pieces one at a time, the granny square technique is perfect for those who are new to crocheting.
For those new to crocheting granny squares or those who just need a refresher, all the granny square basics and a symbol key are included. Complete instructions are provided for a toddler pullover and hat set, a daisy jumper, a toddler cardigan and hat set, a baby sweater and hat set, and a baby afghan--all using the granny squares presented in the book. And remember: You don't have to be a granny to be a granny square crafter!
