 GRANNY SQUARE ACADEMY

This is the digital PDF version of my new book, Granny Square Academy.  You can purchase a physical copy here (and get a bonus free digital copy) . 

This PDF version is best for viewing on your devices, and has not been optimised for printing. 

 

Take your beginner crochet skills to the next level with Granny Square Academy.

If you;

  • can crochet a traditional granny square but can't read a pattern, 
  • taught yourself to crochet and aren't quite sure if you're doing it right, or
  • know what you're doing but want to brush up on your skills,

then Granny Square Academy is for you!

In the 153 PDF, you'll find everything you need to make your crochet the best it can be.

You'll learn;

  • how to read a written pattern
  • how to crochet seamlessly
  • how to work new stitches
  • how to work new techniques
  • how to change colours
  • how to join squares
  • how to work out how much yarn you need for a granny square project 
  • and LOTS more.

To help you, the PDF had been put together for digital viewing so you can click links to videos and further explanations, zoom right in on photos to see exactly what you need to do where and flick from page to page quickly to get to the bits you need fast.

There are 11 pages included that are for printing. One is a project planner so you can keep track of your Granny Square Academy project, noting all the important info.  The rest are the 10 patterns you'll make while you learn.  Each of the patterns is on one page with the chart as an added bonus.  Both UK and US versions are included so you can print preferred terms. 

Here's what Susan had to say about doing Granny Square Academy;

I am so proud of what I have achieved and have learned lots from your beautifully descriptive writing and clear photography. It was hugely helpful being able to enlarge the pics to see clearly where I should be putting my hook and being able to check what your square looked like compared to mine.

I loved the challenge, your clear instructions and the feeling of achievement.

I can't tell you just how proud I am for having made these most gorgeous granny squares. And what an incredible teacher you are!!!  I am thrilled that I can now start confidently,  not missing that first stitch any more and not being confused by corners.  

I have treated myself to your Granny Square Flair book now I have finished. It was great not just to look at the pictures yesterday but realise that I had the confidence to stitch one. I've absolutely loved this and know that this course will teach others like me who have really struggled.

 

I hope you enjoy your crochet adventures with Granny Square Academy.

Love Granny Square Academy

I wish I had found this book when I began crocheting about 5 years ago. It is a boon for beginners or anyone wanting to hone their skills.

I learnt so much even when I thought I knew how to crochet!

The tuition Shelley Husband gives with her notes and videos is excellent. I have taken classes and watched many YouTubes on crochet but Shelley's another level up. I've made my first square in the CAL and can't wait for May 10th for the start of CAL 2021.

Granny Square Academy

I've made a fair number of quite complex items over many years but I found this how-to-do so fresh and interesting, full of tips, alternative methods and revelations! Also lots of patterns too, of course, and it's so good to have new ideas. I love all Shelley's patterns but sometimes the simpler things are the most satisfying. I'm really looking forward to the CAL!!

Variety

I love the variety of granny squares you have come up with. I make a granny square for a pillow every month. At the end of the year I send 12 granny squares to a family member to enjoy then I start over. Your granny squares are beautiful! Thank you

Granny Square Academy

I have purchased the printed book as well as the ebook. Have been crocheting for a long time but have learned a lot from your books. Especially the way the granny squares are joined in the corner and how to work a false stitch.

My granny squares have never looked better.

Thanks for the information in the books. Love your patterns.
