Whether you are just starting to crochet, or you have moved on to other stitches and patterns, Modern Granny Square Crochet and More provides you with plenty of inspiration to get back to basics and reignite your love of granny squares, circles, triangles, and more. Starting with larger scale projects for the home, Pillows and Throws includes colourful, bright, and quick patterns for pillow covers, floor cushions, and blankets and throws, using hexagons, flower squares, and chevrons in addition to squares. Finishing Touches includes quick and easy pieces to complete your interiors, from a monochrome wall hanging to a granny circle rug, circular placemats in graphic black and white with fluorescent trim, and a collection of crochet "pictures" to display. There is plenty to choose from in the Clothes and Accessories section too, including a book bag and coin purse, a granny hexagon tech case, and a triangle shawl, all in rich colours. The basic stitches and techniques you need are all fully illustrated and explained, so you just need the yarn and a hook to be able to create these beautiful, contemporary, and stylish pieces.
