Learn to crochet, make a granny square. It's a simple formula that has held true for decades.

Full-colour photographs capture the intricate details and colour work in each motif, and the stitching instructions offer the flexibility of being presented in both text and symbol formats.Each motif can be quickly crocheted and then used as a small embellishment on a larger item or combined with other motifs to create original pieces, from baby blankets to tote bags. Edie Eckman inspires readers to see the world of possibility in each motif. Master the technique, then let the imagination run wild. Motifs give crocheters the freedom to play with shape, colour, and texture in patterns that are small and quickly completed.

I was extremely happy with this book. I am a beginner to crochet and found the instructions clear and concise and the illustrations very useful. This book instructs using both in code (ch2, sc, dc) and using diagrams, so it is widely adaptable to personal technique. The projects range from basic to quite complicated designs, and the book also includes a great index of stitches and introduction (including photos) of how to begin rounds, change colours, etc. Highly recommended.
