Granny squares are the basis of many crochet projects, from the classic afghan to the Seventies-style granny square vests that made a surprising comeback a few years ago, and granny square dictionaries are to crochet what stitch dictionaries are to knitting—a good reference for designing one's own projects. In this collection, Morgan provides patterns for a variety of squares ranging from traditional medallion-style designs to more unusual designs featuring colorwork motifs or textures. Each design has its own full-color spread featuring a close-up view of the block, written and charted instructions, and yarn requirements for a single square as well as throws of varying sizes.
VERDICT Experienced crocheters will appreciate the variety of designs and the number of advanced techniques presented.
