Granny squares are a crochet classic for a reason.

They’re colourful, quick and fun to make! But the true potential of these dependable design standbys comes in the infinite possibilities offered by their patterning—and the manner in which they’re combined.

Swedish crochet innovator Maria Gullberg explores a whole new side to the familiar crochet square, showing how to create fresh, exciting projects by working and joining grannies in clever new ways to form fascinating textures, eye-catching colour effects, and more. Inside, you’ll find step-by-step instruction in stitches, from foundation chain to treble crochet; guidance in how to swap colours along the way; tips and techniques for working, finishing, and joining granny squares, and dozens of adaptable, brilliantly patterned designs with dynamic artistic and visual effects.
