The most vibrant colourful guide to granny squares I've seen. There is 24 pages of advice and guidance to start you off on your journey if you're new to crochet. You will love the edgings and the advice on blocking if you are a little bit more advanced. The pictures are very clear and the diagrams are big so you can see the crochet hook and yarn very clearly. Each granny square has a clearly written pattern with yarn guides for different sizes of throws. All of the squares are based on aran weight yarn with a 5mm hook. There are five projects to make with the granny squares including a child's blanket, two cushions, an adult blanket and a bag. What really makes this different from other books is the successful use of colour. The colours are bold and brilliant but Leonie has put some lovely subtle and muted combinations together which aren't too in-your-face or jarring. I also love that this book has so many variations of the granny square. The traditional granny square is a well-loved basic by all of us who crochet but it can get tired and need a splash of colour or some mad bobbles and writing sometimes.

Bright and cheery this book certainly is. Nothing for lovers of monotone here. All the squares include at least two colours and some have as many as six in one square. This is great for using up all your oddments. It will appeal to the over 50s market rather than the younger market. Clear instructions, lots of shapes and sizes, which is great. Love the ferris wheel, the pastels, the primroses. Also includes projects for you to use the squares you've made.
