The Granny Squares Purse includes instructions for 3 different granny squares, as well as a template from which you can cut out a lining for the purse. The images include how the curves are notched for the fabric to make it sit flap once sewn in place inside the purse.
Crochet Techniques and Stitches
All of the projects are written in UK crochet terms.
If you are used to following US crochet patterns, don’t let the fact that these are written in UK terms hold you back! You can find the US equivalent terms on page 48 and since each stitch is explained in the Crochet Stitches section, with helpful diagrams, it is easy to double check how a stitch is being made.
- Getting Started: Hooks, needles, yarn, holding the hook, making a slip knot and holding the yarn.
Step-by-step written instructions and diagrams are provided for the following stitches:
- Chain (ch)
- Slip Stitch (sl st)
- Double Crochet (dc)
- Half Treble (htr)
- Treble Crochet (tr)
- Double Treble (dtr)
- Magic Circle
Techniques and finishing instructions also included detailed instructions and diagrams. The following techniques are addressed: Changing colors, fastening off, weaving in ends, sewing up (whip stitch, slip-stitch seam) and double crochet seam.
The Yarns Used:
The yarns used for the some of the projects include (in case you have some in your stash!):
- Rowan Kid Classic
- Rowan Wool Cotton
- Rowan Panama
- Rowan Handknit
The other projects listed “oddments of” the yarn I specified in the Little Crochet Project Patterns list above.
Which Little Crochet Project is your favorite?
My favorite Little Crochet Projects are:
- The Granny Squares Purse ( I love how there are lining instructions included!!).
- The Easy Crochet Belts (I can see myself making one of these for my teen daughter).
- The Votive Covers (when I first looked at them with the light shining through I thought they were beaded – it was a trick of the eye and it made me want some for my shelf at home).
I also really love the hanger covers and if we ever start using hangers again (we have only a few in our closet) this would be something I would love to make! The hangers we have on hand have covers on them from my husband’s Grandma and the cover really helps the clothes stay on the hooks! Definitely recommend covers for your hangers if you use them!
If you want to make something special with your yarn stash but don’t have the time for big projects, these portable, little crochet projects are for you! With this collection of clever crochet projects, you can create a range of beautiful, useful items for your home or stunning handmade gifts for friends and family.

The book looks like there are many items I would make. I love the hanging baskets and the granny square bag sounds cute. I would especially like to see the part about lining the bag.
What a lovely book. I also like the belts and votive candle covers but also like the hanging baskets. What fun 😀
