 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.

Excellent for beginners

This book has been a great way to expand my knowledge of crochet and I’ve loved putting the project together. I was a bit nervous as I’m left handed but the instructions are easy and the links to mirrored YouTube tutorials made such a difference. Thanks for putting together such a wonderful resource.

Great for beginners

I have started 3 of the patterns. Very thorough instructions, with row by row pictures of each pattern. If that still does not help, there are videos on how to do them row by row. I find it very enjoyable and I cannot wait to finish this project and buy the next book.

Granny square for beginners

I used this PDF pattern to brush up on my crochet skills. I haven’t done any crochet since I was a child. I had recently purchased Shelley’s book Granny Square Academy but couldn’t remember much about how to crochet. The granny square for beginners was very easy to read and follow and I quickly remembered some of the basic things my mother had taught me as a child.

I am now racing through Granny Square Academy and really enjoying it. The instructions are clearly written and easy to follow and the charts are an added bonus to complement the instructions. I am learning new skills and techniques and am loving the little squares I am creating. Hoping to make some cushion covers with the results.

Great patterns

I have been crocheting for about 4 years now (self taught). Just wish I had been able to have your book when I started. I am still learning however and find your tips very helpful. Thank you so much
