Siren's Atlas book

The layout of this book with quite unique, in fact a geography lesson with each granny square. I'm crocheting squares in various designs and sizes using this book and other spincushion patterns. The aim is to use up my wool stash (or at least put a small dent in it!) I will join the squares randomly with rectangles to fill in the spaces left by different sized squares.

So far I've only tried a couple of blocks from this book:

Salish: a good solid square with spikes. I finished my square at row 8 as I wanted a small square.

Bohai tricked me a bit as it didn't seem to look like the example. I used quite fine wool and a large hook which gave a different finish again. Later I found the leaflet with the updated instructions. I'm keen to crochet another with the update to compare. And there are another 62 patterns to try, representing seas all over the world

Siren's Atlas

This is a book just to look at. I love the names of the blocks and the great maps. The patterns look achievable with some that will challenge me.

A wonderful collection of squares

This lovely book has 64 new granny squares designed by the very talented Shelley Husband. The squares were inspired by the seas of the world, and Siren’s Atlas certainly shows us the versatility of the granny square. The book starts with what you need to have, and what you need to know, then explains—in a way that is easy to understand—about how to read patterns and charts. There’s a pictorial index of all the patterns, then each of the patterns is set out clearly, with accompanying illustration and chart. At the end of the book is a glossary with explanations of all the stitches, and a section which gives you yarn information. The book is easy to navigate and you will never find yourself “all at sea.” I must admit that I’m a great fan of Shelley Husband’s work, ever since I joined her crochet-a-long in Yarn issue 47. Her step-by-step instructions are excellent and very easy to follow, and the book is available in both US and UK (Australian) versions. The Sirens were mythical creatures who lured sailors to their deaths. I am certainly pulled by the lure of this book to crochet yet another excellent project. If you’re looking for a gift for a friend who crochets—or for yourself—you can’t go past this book.
