    I am so glad I got this from the library Though I had to request it from across town, and then made a special trip just to my branch to get it the day it came in.Given the subtitle, I thought this book would be great In this case, it is best to judge a book by its cover The cover is just an oversized granny square pillow Pretty, but nothing special, and certainly nothing with a new twist.And that pretty much sums this book up A cushion A big cushion A bedroom cushion A sofa blanket A bedroom blanket A bath mat A placemat A floor mat.And then some weird things a ottoman slipcover Really That s not new, it s reminiscent of 1950s couch arm covers, and my would you cover furniture with an openwork pattern An apron pocket that things will fall out of due to the open nature of granny squares A Christmas stocking things will fall out of Covered coat hangers No new patterns, it s all the same old basic granny square No new ideas, just the usual and some rehashed 50s 70s ideas.All that s missing is a toilet paper roll cover.Yawn.

    Just OK Not modern as suggested by the title projects are basic, and some of the commentary is just strange Some instructions are too basic, and don t seem to match the pictures of the finished projects Overall I don t think it is a book I d use very often.

    Full disclosure I received a PDF review copy of Crochet Granny Squares from F W Media as part of Sarah London s blog tour for the book s release I can t address how the book is printed or bound, so my review will focus on the content and overall appearance of the book.Granny Square Love includes many elements of Sarah s signature style vibrant colors, fun photography, and, of course, grannies The book is organized into six chapters.Getting Started is a beginners introduction to crocheting and granny squares This section includes a brief overview of materials and multi color illustrations of the basic crochet stitches I found these illustrations to be larger and clearer than most There are three pages of step by step photos of the process of making a granny square Finally, this section includes an overview of patterns and addresses both abbreviations and stitch symbols The actual abbreviations and stitch symbols are explained in the reference section in the back of the book The next five sections feature projects focused on different rooms in the house Each pattern is presented using both U.S abbreviations and stitch symbols.The Living Room includes cushions in two sizes, an ottoman slipcover, a sofa blanket, the holiday stockings, and the lampshade cover, which is one of my favorite projects in the book.The Kitchen includes patterns for the stool cover, the dishcloth, potholders, a grocer s tote, and an apron pocket.The Dining Room features a tablecloth trim, placemats, napkin holders, a circular garland, and a tea cozy.The Bedroom includes a decorated headboard, bedsheet trim, a bedroom blanket, a hot water bottle cover, and the striking black and white bold bedroom cushion.The Bathroom and Laundry includes patterns for coat hangers, a curtain, a bathmat, and towel trim.The book closes with some reference information, including hook sizes, a yarn comparison chart, and a guide to pattern abbreviations and stitch symbols.What I like about this book Sarah includes Color Commentary throughout the book She is known for her use of vibrant colors, and shares some insight into her pairings of different colors The patterns includes both stitch symbols and abbreviations The photographs are great eye candy and Granny Square Love is a fun book to look through It will definitely get your creative juices flowing The book is very beginner friendly The illustrations are quite clear and the step by step photographs of the granny square in progress are very helpful The patterns are well organized, so it would be easy to find one you liked later.What I don t like about this book or what s missing The information on pattern reading is largely in the back in the reference section The book seems targeted to beginners, and they might prefer to see this information before the patterns start The patterns are limited to home decor projects featuring granny squares or similar motifs, so there isn t a tremendous variety.Overall, I think the book would be an excellent addition to the personal library of a crochet beginner It could also be great for someone who is a experienced crocheter but is timid about using bold colors More experienced crocheters with a strong color sense are not the target audience of this book at all I give the book 4 out of 5 stars for beginners or crocheters who are afraid of colors Even if you don t make all of the projects, it is presented in a lovely, visual fashion.

    First of all, let me start by saying I m a huge fan of Sarah London, have been reading her blog since she first started writing one, I m also ravelry friends with her The book starts as with so many other crochet books, with a how to section I really, really, really hate seeing that in so many books, I always feel if you are a beginner crocheter, you d be getting a whole how to book out of the library or from the bookstore, you wouldn t just pick up a random crochet book hope there s a how to section in it To me, it s really a waste of space in the book a waste of money, but that may just be me.As with all of London s stuff, all of the projects in the book are very bright colorful, which is why she has so many fans The projects are beautifully photographed, with both full shots close up views There are 25 projects included in the book, they are all very beginner friendly The focus here is on color, not stitches, and each project includes some tips on picking color.My absolute favorite project is the Grocer s Tote, which is also featured on London s blog.I won a copy of this book as part of London s blog tour.

    I would recommend this book for beginners It is good practice for increasing and decreasing, and reading patterns That being said, it really didn t feel like this book had a lot of originality in it I ve come across similar projects while looking at crafting blogs and vintage patterns the only project that really impressed me was the headboard.While the projects didn t impress me, it was well written and illustrated The pictures of the projects are colorful, and do a good job of showing the resulting projects.

  6. Bonnie Vasko says:

    Kind of cool to see all the different things done with the basic granny square The book definitely isn t required to do these projects, I mean they are just granny squares The pictures and ideas are great though, and have no regrets about getting this book And it did inspire me to make my first granny square blanket

  7. Aubree says:

    I thought this book would be patterns for many different granny squares It wasn t Just a lot of projects you could do with the same granny square It s probably much better if that s what you are looking for.

    I m still not totally sold on granny squares, but as a reader of Sarah s blog I had to check this out I do love her use of color, and the patterns look well designed as well, with both charts and written instruction.
