Granny Square Flair is an all new collection of 50 variations on the classic square crochet motif. With innovative techniques and inventive combinations of basic stitches, I have created what I hope will be a valued addition to your crochet reference library.

Each of the 50 square patterns is presented in both chart form and in written round-by-round instructions, so you can work in the way that suits you best. I include full explanations of special stitches, along with tips for finishing your project beautifully. Every square is shown in at least 3 distinctive colour ways, inspiring your own colour exploration.
