The Ultimate Granny Square Sourcebook

The Story Behind...

I have always loved books and spent all my weekends and holidays working in small towns little bookstore when I was younger. All just to be able to read the new books before they were even released, to see a not final draft and then re-read it when it was published; it felt like having a secret treasure chest of stories that was only gonna be read by a few in this almsot ready form.. 

It its something magical flipping through a paperback, hearing the sound and feeling every page running under your fingertips. To have my work and name in a book myself is a dream come true. I can’t even begin to express how much it means to me. It’s absolutely mind blowingly: crazy, fun, wonderful and yeah.. “helt otroligt galet” as we say in Swedish.

This is a gorgeous collection of 100 modern granny squares put together by 23 different designers from all over the world, and I am one of them. 

In this book you’ll find 10 of my beloved squares:

  • The Twisted Lily Square
  • The Darling Puff Square
  • The Oh I Adore Square
  • The Cotton Candy Square
  • The L.A. Sunflower Square
  • The Thumbelina Square
  • The Ponding Lily Square
  • The A Little Something Square
  • The Sunny Side Pop Square
  • The Nordic Serenity Square

Thank you so much for your support and love, you are amazing!

  • Busty Bloom Square by @crochetbyredagape from the Granny Square Sourcebook by  @allcrochetpatternsnet . I have a confession to make. I was well into it and realized the center was supposed to have 6 not 5 petals. 🤫 But it was looking awesome so I continued anyway. 54/100 done!!! #100grannysquaresbook #grannysquaresbook #crochetbook #grannysquares #crochetersofinstagram #yarnandcolorsmusthave #yarnandcolors #ilovecrochet #crochetaddict #crochetersofinstagram

With this, we totally have work cut out for us next week. Gonna be signing, wrapping and singing all Monday to Tuesday to then have all the books shipped; to all who have placed an order before this very Sunday.
.
We are gonna have such a book packing party! 🎉 And with we I mean me and my husband whom I’ve totally bribed with panna cotta..
All fair right?! 💛🧡❤️
.
Oh and we only have 9 books left (could be less, need to check the stock) so if you want to make sure to get yours out next week: please place your order before Sunday! 😃✨ I do have ordered a smaller additional shipment to make sure I’ll have a some for future things and orders to come too. 😄

Have a wonderful day and see you tomorrow for the release and premiere of the SiS Vlog on YouTube! I will be sharing and showing about the book, current projects and a little island nature of course. 🌾

May is coming to an end and with it a new one begin... For the June pattern and tutorial @sistersinstitch teamed up with the one and only sunshine Jill from @gumleaf_crochet ☀️💛✨

Until then, here is a little sneak peak of what’s coming your way this very Friday (5/6)! 🧡💛❤️
