In the 128 pages of this beautiful book, we become familiar with ten different granny square patterns. Each of the patterns are charted and has written directions. We then see how each square can be used in different ways to create three unique blankets. Hubert uses color, texture, yarn size, joining, and different trims to personalize each blanket. The results are stunning.

The great thing about this book is that it nurtures creativity and design. I wrote about stepping into crochet design in a previous post. Hubert’s diverse choices of texture and color in the blanket samples were fascinating and educational. One of my favorites was Jungle, where she used a variegated yarn with long color changes to do the color work inside the squares and then joined them with a solid color. I also loved Oceanside, where she used a textured thick and thin yarn alongside a standard smooth yarn. Another favorite was Cappuccino, where she took the colors of coffee and cream and created a cozy blanket perfect to wrap around yourself while sipping morning java. Circle in the Square featured an intriguing play with negative space. These sophisticated patterns really do elevate the granny square and will also elevate your skill set.

    Wow!!!, I did not know that there was a Give Away, for Ms. Margaret Hubert, 10-Granny-Square-30-Blankets, I first checked this book out at a Library in Baytown, Texas and fell in LOVE with it. The only bad thing was I could only check it out for two weeks, what a bummer. Any way I would really LOVE TO WIN THIS GIVE AWAY, because there are so many Wonderful patterns and Gift Ideas, to make for my Family and some of my Church family and friends………… And I would also, like to add what an awesome Crocheter, Ms. Hubert is and also inspiring me along with all the crochet techniques that my Mother, Grand Mother and Aunt have given me over the Years. Thank-You, Very Much, Cindy Garlotte
