101 Crochet Squares by Jean Leinhauser includes, you guessed it, 101 afghan squares you can crochet with any type of yarn.
A note at the beginning of the book indicates that the example squares were crocheted with medium weight yarn . A gauge of 3 dc and 2 rows of dc per inch was reached using the medium weight yarn.
The crochet square patterns include a number of flowery options, as well as, seasonal themed squares (i.e. snowflakes, Santa, Hearts, black cats, etc.). You will also find afghan square designs with great textures created with bobbles and popcorn stitches and even more open designs using mesh stitches.
The patterns are written in U.S. Crochet terms. If any special Pattern Stitches are used in the design, they are included after the Materials Section in the specific pattern. The Materials Section indicates the colors of yarn used in the finished square and when multiple colors are used it will indicate which color is A, B and C. The specific yarn used and the hook size used are not included in the instructions.
The written instructions seem very straightforward and easy-to-follow. The stitch counts are not always included at the end of the rows, or rounds. Each square begins with a specific number of chains which are then joined to form a loop, not a magic ring.
The squares in the book are named “Square 1” to “Square 101” and every pattern includes a color photograph of the finished Crochet Square.

The stitch guide is provided on page 98 and includes common crochet stitches and abbreviations. You are also given the link to the online stitch guide for additional stitch help.
There is a great selection of different styles of Afghan Squares included in 101 Crochet Squares. Many of the designs are for flowers (which I love), including the Sunflower Afghan Square Pattern (Square 35) and Square 12 which reminds me of a dainty rose bud. You will have fun choosing which pattern to make and not being limited to a yarn type or hook will allow you to choose your favorite yarns and colors for your finished projects.
