 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.

Granny Square Academy

Granny Square Academy is a wonderful guide to begin your granny square journey. The techniques and patterns are thoroughly explained with detailed photos as well as accompanying videos for the 10 squares on YouTube. I'm excited to continue working with this book!

A must have!!

I purchased Granny Square Academy and I have managed to work through the first five squares.

The written patterns offer excellent instructions and combined with Shelley's videos I figure out what I may be doing incorrectly and try again until I get the desired result.

I have managed to achieve a better ability to "read" the stitches. I used to have so much trouble figuring out where to start or end rows... where to put my hook to get the next stitch in the correct stitch in the previous row. I have been struggling with that problem for a long time but Granny Square Academy is helping me achieve the results I want.

I like that this digital book has both the UK and US patterns as this teaches me how to read most patterns I would want to attempt.

Everything you wanted to know about granny squares and more!

Love, love, love Granny Square Academy! I have been crocheting since I was 14. I am 64 now. My grandmother taught me. Started with a granny square purse. I was to make 8 squares. Each square ended up a different size and not quite square. But bless my grandma, she made me finish it AND, I still have it! I so wish she was still with me so I could share with her the things I am learning with Granny Square Academy! Best purchase ever.

Glad I joined the GS Academy

I have learnt so much more than I expected to. The lessons were excellent - informative and easy to follow. I really enjoyed the lesson format, with the reading and then the row by row photos. I used the written instructions on the main, but did refer to the charts. Looking forward to graduating to Granny Square Flair.
