The Granny Square Book, Second Edition by Margaret Hubert

I received a free sample in exchange for writing a review on my blog

The Granny Square Book, Second Edition by Margaret Hubert is actually a really good update from the first edition! I love the beautiful squares that you can create and easy to follow steps. This book, like the original edition, has always been so easy to follow. The patterns are easily seen and read, with step by step text and photos of the finished project. This book includes more than 120 squares but with the newer version, you have 25 new granny squares to create, which is so awesome and for a person like myself who enjoys crocheting, I just can't wait to try these new squares!

I've seen so many things done with granny squares lately.  Therefore, with this book full of creative squares, I can make pretty much fun and decorative bags, blankets, scarves and so on!  There is like endless possibilities when it comes to granny squares and making them into something else! I've seen it done so many times, but what I never saw is some of these square ideas in use and that is what makes this book so awesome! So many squares to create and so many ideas to use them into. Also, the book will help you out with that as well. You can find a few ideas in the back using the squares to create clothing scarves and even bags.
Finally, this book is a super easy guide for anyone to understand, even if you're a beginner starting out. I say this because the book has so many simple steps and visual guidance with each pattern inside. Also, I do not have any favorites from this book, it's too difficult to choose. There are so many beautiful and decorative granny squares, that I actually love them all. Plus depending on the object or purpose of using the square, what I'm going to make out of it, I really can't say any is better than another. Finally, this is a wonderful book, and even better with new projects to enjoy creating!
