344-348::365 go crochet squares

344-348::365

Patterns (left to right): "Puddles Gather Rain", "Eyelets", "Oscar Square", & "Flower Patch" from Go Crochet! Afghan Design Workbook by Ellen Gormley.

I needed some smaller squares to round out my project and fill in some gaps in a sampler afghan, so I bought a second crochet book for my Kindle. Go Crochet! features 50 different motifs (each with charted and written pattern). In addition to square patterns, it has rectangles, triangles, hexagons, and octagons to choose from. The last part of the book shows a few afghans made up of different motifs and gives directions and tips for how to put them together. I've only skimmed that part, but I already know I have to make "All Call", an afghan made up of at least one of every motif in the book! Anyway, as for these squares, each measured about 4", and I didn't have to make any changes to the simple patterns and relied almost exclusively on the charts. As always I used magic rings for the center instead of the suggested chain rings.

  1. I love your "Eyelets." How does the book look on the kindle - does it include pictures or just text?

  2. I think that the 'Flower patch' is the sweetest square I have ever seen! :)x

  4. It looks great on my kindle fire. It would be not as good on a grayscale kindle, but all the photos are included in full color. It has the charted diagrams, too. Someone with worse up-close-vision than I have might think some charts are too small, but you can make them fullscreen and zoom in more. Actually not a problem for this book because the motifs are so small. I'll have to do a little review on Kindle crochet resources when I'm finished with my granny squares!
