Granny squares are so great because you can literally turn them into so many different items such as scarves, hats, sweaters, skirts, and our personal favorite-- crochet afghans! Inside Granny Squares: 20 Crochet Projects With a Vintage Vibe, you will find a lovely collection of retro-inspired granny squares designed for your home.

It might be tempting to dive right into the crochet patterns, but the beginning of this book contains some super helpful information you might not want to pass up such as Basic Crochet Techniques, Basic Granny Shapes, and Sample Deigns. If you take the time to read these chapters (or at least browse them), you're likely to be much happier with your finished crochet project.

As far as the projects go, you won't be disappointed with the variety you have to choose from inside this 140-page book. You won't believe how easy it is to turn each one of these little granny squares into something bigger, like a throw pillow, bath mat, shopping bag, tablet cover, or even a lampshade! A few of my personal favorite patterns are the Garden Seat Cover (pg. 80), Hexagon Bed Pillow (pg. 88), Camping Blanket (pg. 92), and the Cube Storage Seat Cover (pg. 120).

Granny squares are sometimes referred to as the "building blocks" of different projects. Depending on the colors you use and the design you select, a granny square has endless possibilities, and this book certainly proves that. Don't miss these bright and colorful vintage crochet patterns!
