101 Crochet Squares by Jean Leinhauser

I'm really a huge fan of this book! If you ever wanted an easy crochet book to just practice or create some lovely designs, well this is the one to get! The book, 101 Crochet Squares by Jean Leinhauser is packed with all types of squares that don't require any specific hook, yarn or colors. Pretty much, you can use any hook you feel comfortable with and if you got a good deal on yarn, maybe 1 dollar or so, well use it, there isn't any type ruled out when creating these squares. So thick or thin yarn, small or large hook, and any color of the rainbow, it's all up to you!

That is just terrific! I mean most books you really need to get the right stuff, as it won't always appear or come out as seen in the book. However, when you don't have all those rules, it's a great way for any beginner to take what they know and practice crocheting, anyplace and anytime. I always have yarn on hand, but not typically thick wool or other types that are needed for some things I create. I can tell that even with boot making or clothing making with these cotton yarns, the item doesn't come out as it should, but still works. However, in this book, I don't need to worry or think about what I use to complete the project. Plus, I'm learning to make squares and all types, 101 to be exact.

Finally, this is a terrific book! It's super easy to practice with, create some fun designs and even put each square together and make a beautiful blanket or some gifts for the house or others.
