Book Description

Get your granny on with this collection of 12 different crochet wearables one for each month of the year all made using the humble granny square stitch.

There are lighter knits for summer days and heavier knits for the cooler months, all made using the granny stitch in a variety of innovative ways. The granny stitch isn't just for squares - it is an incredibly versatile stitch and can be used lots of different ways: including stripes, chevrons, colour block patterns, Aztec-inspired stitch patterns and even a fair isle style yoke.

The patterns in this collection are not overly complex and some of them will be suitable for absolute beginners. All of the clothing patterns will be graded to be as size inclusive as possible and there are a selection of accessories offering a choice of quicker, easier makes.

There are step-by-step instructions and photographs for all the techniques including how to increase and decrease using the granny stitch so even if you've never crocheted a garment before you can get started.
So, if you love crochet but have had enough of the granny square, now's the time to take your craft to the next level and revive your wardrobe with modern granny stitch style. Choose your favourite patterns and have fun selecting your favourite colourways. Claudine suggests her own colour selections but there is always room to experiment and make the designs your own.
