This is by far the best of all the books I have seen on squares, blocks, motifs -- whatever. All the blocks are at least pretty - some are absolutely gorgeous. I've found very few errors in the instructions, and the few I've found are easiy discovered and corrected. I've bought a bunch of squares/motifs books in my day, and most of them have been sold or given away. This one's a keeper.

I enjoy making grannies. They use up yarns and go quickly and are not boring as each one is different. The authors here are very experienced and are known for high quality books and this doesn't disappoint. My own hesitation was that there are only 50 squares and it works out to about 3 times the price of the one for 99 squares which was published in 1998 and still in print here. So if you're looking for something cheaper, this isn't the book. But each square has its own page next to the instructions and the photo in color is large and pretty. Also, there are 4 people who contributed to the book and most of the squares look fairly similar and not all that unusual. Also, the size of the finished square is given and they vary from about 6" to 12" and this is a very useful thing to have. So for anyone like myself who just loves grannies, this book is recommended.

This book is awesome! There are so many wonderful new designs. I can't wait to try them all. The patterns are well-written and easy to understand. I've got to go...need to find a crochet hook and pick some colors!

One of the best books available currently for afghan blocks. It's fun to work through the book. I've learned a lot of new techniques. The only drawback---no charts.

This book has such a wide variety of squares, from plain squares to variety of flowered squares, and from simple to more complex. Provides great colorful pictures and pattern instructions.

I am so pleased that I ordered this book. I participate in a lot of "block/square swaps" with various groups on Ravelry.com (if you're a knitter/crocheter/spinner, etc... check it out). The patterns are very unique and appeal to a wide group of people and tastes. Some are very dense while others are more open and lacy. The directions are pretty straight forward and will produce a lovely block. I do use advanced joining techniques like "air crochet" and "invisible join" to further add to the beauty of the squares. There are no hook recommendations and the book assumes (I believe) that you are using worsted weight (4) yarn, so an appropriate hook - depending on your tension - would be an "H" on average, though I usually find myself using an "I."

There are a few errors that a more experienced crocheter will spot and be able to work through. Newer crocheters will need to go to the publishers webpage for errata. I believe this book came with a short sheet of errata which I found very helpful.

This book is an excellent addition to anyone's crochet library.

All the squares are gorgeous. The photos of the squares on the cover imply that the squares are the same size (interchangeable). In reality the squares are all in various sizes ranging from 5" to 12". The photos inside are also not actual size; for example, two 12" squares are shown in two different sized photos. The only gauge given is in the introduction and is "a standard gauge of 14 sc = 4"...worsted weight yarn". No mention of hook size. The introduction does mention that the squares can be made in any weight yarn and show a comparison of one square done in worsted, sport, and thread, but these are also not actual sized samples. I really expected more from the authors and publisher.

Innovative, I saw one of these new Granny Squares in a catalog, but could not find the pattern. So glad this book came along, the sky is the limit now......so many ways to go... So many afghans to create!

Information presented well, color photos inspire creative original ideas.
