I would give this a higher rating, but I think the title is misleading. The author is calling anything that is square a Granny Square. There are wonderful stitches and squares but they are not all Granny Squares. In fact I want to try some of the stitches shown in the squares. If a person worked their way through all of the squares they could crochet most anything and have a good sampler!
