Crocheted squares and rectangles can be shaped and combined to form a surprising array of pullovers, cardigans, lightweight tops, and wraps. Simple and easy-to-follow instructions will have you hooking up a whole new wardrobe of beautiful, creative crochet pieces you will be proud to wear. Most designs are easy or intermediate level and build upon your knowledge of basic stitches to create textural styles that look more complex than they are. Crochet two squares to make the Cold-Shoulder Granny, an on-trend top you can whip up quick, or combine two rectangles to make the Astrid Ruana, a comfy, oversized cardigan.


Sumptuous yarns in gorgeous colors from Lion Brand's vast selection of yarns were chosen for the pattern samples shown in this book, assuring that all of the yarns used are easy-to-find, affordable options. Crochet in the colors shown, or try your own color scheme. Lion Brand yarns have a large selection of colors from which to choose, so enjoy the yarn aisle!
