The granny square is the starting point for many people when they first learn to crochet, but as their skills progress, this versatile crochet block is often forgotten. In Granny Square Crochet, crochet teacher Catherine Hirst presents 35 projects which show how this traditional square can be updated and used in many different ways. The first chapter has over a dozen projects for the home, ranging from a blue-and-white mug cozy which can be made in less than an hour, to a stunning bed cover. There are pillows and seat covers to brighten up your living room, plus place mats, drinks coasters, and a runner for your table. The second chapter has some great accessories, including gloves, scarves, and bags, and even a dog coat to keep your favourite hound warm in winter. The third chapter has a great range of patterns to make as gifts for children and babies, such as crib and baby carriage blankets, bibs, hats, and toys. Each project is graded according to the level of skill required, and there is a comprehensive basic techniques chapter explaining all you need to know.

Some great project ideas but not overly modern with the designs or colour schemes.
