Beyond the Square

A much anticipated package got delivered today...

Beyond the Square #1

Beyond the Square – Crochet Motifs by Edie Eckman!!

I’ve never been a huge fan of granny squares before, but since it’s something every ‘hooker’ out there seems to love, I figured I should give it a try.

And I have to say: if you’re looking for a book filled with useful information on crochet, happy colours and 144 inspiring patterns of granny squares, circles, hexagons and more, this is the book for you!!

Beyond the Square #2

Not only are there many, MANY great patterns in this book, Edie Eckman also filled the pages with detailed descriptions of numerous stitches, useful information on reading crochet charts, invisible ways to join rounds, crocheting motifs together and the basic principles of making motifs (in case you want to design some yourself)!!!

Beyond the Square #3

It didn't take long before these motifs were growing on me. In fact: I might actually LIKE making them :)

Beyond the Square #4

I will need to practice though... A LOT ;)

Beyond the Square #5

How I would love to make a Granny Square-blanket one day! Hell, I might even make a fancy edging while I’m at it ;)
