We call it the PORT ABLE granny square. Because you can ake
it with you. Scoop up your crochet hook and some of your yarn
as you go dashing out the door. Whip them out and croc et

train. The granny is a small unit, handy to work with wherever
you are and finished squares seem to multiply like magic
ROMANTIC VICTORIAN VEST (right) This
once-upon-a-time
vest designed
by Nan
Jannes Brown is based on an ornate granny
with a web-like center. It looks difficult. It
isn't. Amazingly, all it requires is two stitches:
chain and double crochet. Its spectacular
back is a single lacy granny composed of
shells and a network of chains. Sizes Small
(6-8), Medium (10-12). In wool sport yarn.
LONG TAILORED VEST (be/ow) Knee-length
vest designed by Sally DeGaetano is made of
large granny squares connected with shells.
The lower back and side seams have gussets
of shells to create the gentle easiness of a
slight A-line. Shoulders and shaped neckline
are also worked in shells. In knitting worsted.

PRECIOUS
LITTLE KIMONOSLEEVE
SWEATER Delia Brock updates the traditional granny square kimono sweater: she
stops it at the waist, crops the sleeves, gives
it a pastel "little girl" look. Each square has
a center of rayon yarn, and outer rounds of
crochet cotton and sport yarn. Waistband and
square neckline are worked in single crochet.
Sizes Small (6-8), Medium (10-12).
ROSETTED BELT The extra petals in the
center of every other granny in this belt are
Irish crochet, easier than it looks. Designed
by Nan Jannes Brown, it ties in back or
front, as you like. Three inches wide. Size is
adjustable since you can just make additional squares. In linen/Orlan
blend yarn.

ANYONE

CAN DO THE
SQUARE

Shown on pages 53-62


Making colorful afghans and bedspreads
and blankets by joining small squares of
the same size is one of the most traditional forms of crochet.
It remains as
popular today as it was when your greatgrandmother did it-and
for the very same
reasons:
it is portable-you
can keep
small amounts of yarn tucked in your
purse and whip up a few units between
bus stops or at the hairdresser's;
it is
piecemeal work, convenient to start and
stop; it is economical-leftover
yarns can
be put to good use in a collection
of
multicolor squares; it is repetitive enough
to keep your hands happily
occupied
while you're thinking about-or
watching
~something
else; and still, the variety of
granny squares possible (see directions
for individual grannies beginning on page
168), the yarn and color changes you can
make prevent a granny square project
from turning into a bore.

MAKING LARGE PIECES


FROM SMALL GRANNIES
The most common way to wo
granny square is to join square of equal size (see Drawing 3),

SQUARE?

It's a unit of crochet, traditionally


made
up of only two stitches, chain and double
crochet. It always starts at the center with
chain stitches slip-stitched
into a ring.
Then it grows, round by round, combining
groups of double crochet stitches, which
form shells, with chain stitches to separate
the shells and make the corners. The traditional granny square is made of five such
rounds and ends up, of course, a square.
But nowadays. one can make as many or
as few rounds as one likes, and one can
vary the way one combines chains and
double crochets, one can, indeed, add or
substitute other stitches. One can even
turn the old granny square into a rectangle, a triangle, or a five-, .six- or eightsided unit (see Drawing 1) and you'll find

YARNS AND COLORS


Consider anything you can wrap around
a hook as a candidate for a project. The
fuzzy yarns, particularly angora and mohair, make delightful sweaters. If the cost
is prohibitive, use expensive yarn for only
one round of each granny and a less expensive knitting worsted or synthetic yarn
for the other rounds. Try summer yarns,
like Brunswick's
Coolspun,
a blend of
linen and Orion, which we used in the
belt on page 56; or Lily Mills "Sugar-'nCream" cotton yarn, used in the bedspread on page 61; or sport yarn and
crochet cotton worked together with rayon
yarn centers as in the kimono-sleeve
sweater, page 56. The child's
pullover
vest, page 54, in slinky DMC pearl cotton
explores the delicacy of the granny square
look with a single crochetable
thread.
Common
hardware-store
string
is a
charming, inexpensive way to work granny
square projects,
as is its variety-store
counterpart,
Coats & Clark's Speed-CroSheen. Perhaps you have some rattail left
over from a macrame project. or other
novelty material like soutache, chenille or
3- or 4-line braid. Metallic yarn used alone
or in combination
with knitting worsted
could make a smashing evening jacket.
Don't forget rug yarn. Use it not only in
a rug, as we did, but try it in a floppybrim hat. Shown on page 58.
As you concoct new yarn combinations,
coordinate your ideas with color experiments. A classic granny square module
can take on a whole variety of appearances simply through the placement of
color (see Drawing 2). The bright cottonyarn bedspread
we show on page 61
demonstrates
these changes admirably.
The actual crocheting is the same in every
unit,
but the arrangement
of colors
changes the appearance of each square.

There are other exciting ways to bu :


a large piece from the individual gran
squares. One is to combine units of different sizes and shapes in one design (seE
Drawing 5). We did it in the Mosaic Moha;;

Continued
Evening Skirt on page 62. Another is to
combine granny squares with solid crochet in strips or shaped sections
(see
Drawing 6). This technique was used for
ing 7. With such tricks at your disposal,
you can do a certain amount of fitting but
still may not be able to size your module
exactly. In this case, always crochet the
module smaller, for granny modules, like
all crocheting,
stretch easily.
Another way to design fitted clothing is
to combine grannies with regular crochet
and use the regular. crochet to achieve
the crucial shapinq and fit. Look at the
startling difference
in the shape of the
items in Drawing 8. The gussets of regular

and 55.
TIPS ON FITTING THE GRANNY
When you make granny square clothes desicned around the building-block
technique, you run up against the problem
thaI. the wa'lnies, joined, end up as a
laroe square or rectangle, and the human
body is neither. If you're making the sort
of garment where precise sizing and shaping isn't critical, plan it this way: decide
on the area that must fit. In a sweater,
for example, it might be around the bustline. Divide the measurement by the number of units you would like to cover that
area; say the bust measurement
is 32"
and you would like the sweater 8 units
around-4
across the front of the sweater
and 4 across the back. Divide 32" by 8
for il rnodu'e size of 4". If you prefer a
sweater to fit loosely, this is the unit size
you'll make. If you want a clingy sweater,
subtract
'h" from 4" and make each
granny square 3'12" x 3V2". Incidentally,
that V2" is a pretty reliable "stretch"
allowance for .any granny.
Caution: Once you decide the size of
the module, you're stuck with it, and every
other measuremeni must be a multiple of
it. The opening of the sweater can only
fall at the edge of a module, so the armhole or neckline edge may fall a little
lower or higher than you want it.
The obvious and correct conclusion to
draw about these sizing and shaping limitations is that the building-block
technique, used alone, does not lend itself to
making clothes that curve around the
body. You can moderate the limitations
by using tapered modules in areas of a
garment where you would like an increase
in fullness
or snugness:
to enlarge a
module,
use a taller stitch (a double
crochet is longer than a half double crochet), a larger hook or a thicker material
on one or more rounds or even sides of
the module. To reduce the module, use
the shortest stitch, a smaller hook or
thinner material on one or more rounds
of the module. To produce some tapered
modules, we used one hook on half of
each round of the module, a smaller size
hook 0'1 the other half of each round to
produce a "square" that looks like Draw144

pattern to prevent raveling. Next, cut outside the stitching line. Treat the parts like
regular pattern pieces, pinning and stitching them together. If the shaped section
is located along an outer edge of the
garment-the

perhaps-finis

JOINING GRANNY SQUARES
You can sew grannies together using a
blunt yarn needle or you can crochet then;
together.
One way to sew grannies is to butt the
edges together and weave the yarn bac
and forth from edge to edge (see Drawing
9). A second method is to butt the edges
anr! use a whipstitch for the joining (see
Drawing 10).

Drawing 10
Drawing 8

These techniques
are almost invisible
if done on the wrong side with matching
yarn. But you can achieve an interesting
effect by using yarn in a color that contrasts with the squares.
'\ a crochet the squares together, use a
slipstitch or single crochet (see Drawin_
111. If you do the latter on the right side

Sin e-c.roor.eted to ethe ("

wr-ong Side

wron~ side

Drawing 11

crochet (rows of single or double crochet


or rows of shells) give the granny square
vest the necessary fullness through the
bust without sacrificing the snug fit at the
waist. The panels of regular crochet in the
skirt permit it to hug the waist and hips,
but flair out gracefully
at the bottom.
When you plan your own design for a
fitted outfit, decide where the shaping is
critical and plan the regular crochet in
that area. For example, if you would like
a sweater to stop exactly at your waist and
you do not want it loose around the bottom, let the last granny squares stop
above the waist and single-crochet
a
waistband to cover the distance between
the lower units and waist. Then ease the
qrannysquares
onto the waistband when
you sew the units together.
If you want a garment to fit very precisely or have a very specific
shape,
here's still another way to do it: treat the
joined grannies like fabric as we did in
our Diamond Jim Tie (page 62). Pin a
dress or coat pattern (or whatever you are
making) on the joined granny units. Handling the joined grannies on the sewing

you'll end up with a handsome


ridged
effect, such as we achieved on our Trisquare Shawl (page 59). Here, too, you
can use yarn in a contrasting color for the
joining or use one of the joinings illustrated below (see General Directions on
page 146). Clearly. some of these joinings

GENERALDIRECTIONS
Changing Colors You can change colors after each
round, every other round or as you desire. When
changing colors, break off yarn after the joining
at end of the round has been worked. Then make
loop on hook with new color and sl st in the joining st of previous round or in the space specified
in the directions. If you do not wish to change
colors but the next round starts in a space or
stitch a few stitches from where you just ended,
don't break off. Just sl st over those intervening
sts and into the space or st where the next round
should start. Then ch 3 (or whatever the directions call for) and you're all set to go on.
You can save yourself time and effort by working over the cut ends of yarn, so you won't have
to weave them through the stitches later.
Right Side Always work each round with the right
side of work facing you, unless otherwise specified.
The right side is the side facing you as you work
the first round.
Blocking Block all matching squares together so
they will be the same size. If there are too many,
block one and draw a pattern of it. Then block
all others to the pattern. When squares of different sizes have to match, such as the small
ones on the Rugged Hearth Rug that fit around the
3 large ones, block the large squares first, then
block the small ones to fit. Sometimes they have
to be stretched or pulled in a bit. Block pieces on
the wrong side. Use a steam iron or damp cloth
and do not put the weight of the iron on the piece,
but pat it lightly with the iron and allow the
steam to do the work. Let the crochet dry completely before moving it or it may pullout of
shape.
After joining you can give your creations one
final light steaming on the wrong side.
Gauge Some crocheters tend to work tighter than
others. If you find your square is popping up in
the middle or cupping, try working a little looser.
Or you can add an extra ch st between each shell
as necessary to keep square flat.

... but just look at her now!


When little Betania first came to our affiliated Children's Home in Brazil, she was
nine months old and so undernourished
her skin broke at the slightest touch. Her
destitute mother had fed Betania on water
sweetened with sugar-nothing else . ..
And the nurse was afraid to double the
sheet that covered
the little girl because any added:
weight might injure
her fragile skin.
But less thana year later-just look at
Betania! You'd hardly know she was the
same child. Good food, clean clothing,
medication and love-have
made the
difference between a starving infant and a
healthy, laughing child.
Your love can help make such a difference for another boy or girl. For only $12
a month you become a CCF sponsor and
help a needy child get a start in life. You
will receive a Personal Information Folder
telling you about the child you are,helping,
the child's name, date of birth, personal
history, special interests and a description
of the CCF Project. Plus-a small photograph of the child.
You will receive complete instructions
telling you how to write direct to your
child. Then will come a happy day when

you receive a reply from your child-the


original and an English translation.
You may be wondering: just what does
my $12 a month provide Well, this depends on the Project? The child-like
Betania-may live in an Orphanage which
receives aid from other sources, but still
must struggle to give children the basic
needs of life. Your gifts help make possible
the extra advantages so necessary to a
child in today's world ... shoes that fit,
school books, nourishing food, a loving
housemother ...
Or the child may be in oneof our Family
Helper Projects-a
youngster with a
widowed mother, impoverished parents or
from a broken home. Your sponsorship
will help keep the child with the family by
helping supply food, clothing, school
books, family guidance and a variety of
services directed by a trained caseworker.
So please look again at the picture of
little Betania. She is only one of thousands
of children who need someone to care.
Let a child know about your love. Why
wait another day? Thanks so much.
Sponsors urgently needed this month for
children in: India, Brazil, Taiwan (Formosa), Mexico and Philippines. (Or let us
select a child for you from our emergency
list.)

Can you guess my age?


Look at my picture. Look at it closely. How many wrinkles
do you see?
It's hard to say, isn't it? And nobody's done anything
with this photograph-like smoothing out my skin.
If you don't believe me, anytime you're passing through
Freeport, Illinois, you can look me up in person. My name
is Marguerite Prasse.
You know what I use on my face? A hand lotion-not
just any lotion, but a special one. And I've been using this
hand lotion on my face for 45 years. (That'll give you a
hint, I've been around for awhile.)
I discovered it when one of my daughters was a
youngster. She used to play outdoors a lot and her knuckles
would get so chapped, they would bleed. Why, I tried
everything, until I finally found Campana Italian Balm".
I'll tell you, it worked wonders on her tiny hands. So I
started to use it myself. And it's done so much good for my
skin, I had a hard time getting an apartment in an elderly
housing development. I had to prove I was over 62.
Even a salesgirl at the cosmetic counter in a store
where lance worked asked me not to tell customers my
secret. She was afraid she wouldn't be able to sell her
products. You see, Italian Balmis much less expensive
than most face creams.
Incidentally, drugstores sometimes are out of Italian
Balm. But they'll get it on request any time you ask for it.
Right now, I have two bottles on hand. Enough to keep me
.100kiJ;lgyounger than my 71 years;
Now, how close did you come to guessing my age?
The above is an unretouchcd photograph oj Marguerite Prasse, Freeport, Ill.

rnd for each square. Follow assembly diagram for
placement of squares. The letters in each square
indicate colors. The first letter is color used for

on. The blank squares on border are worked with
color A only. The shaded area represents une-color
squares as marked.
,
Work all squares for one horizontal or vertical
strip and sew them together with A before beginning the next strip. In this way you can avoid
the confusion of a lot of loose squares and the
bedspread will be assembled as you work. To join,
hold 2 squares with right sides facing and sew
together along oneside with running stitches or
whipstitches,

black No. 6 (B); JA"-wide elastic to fit waist;


aluminum crochet hook size H (or Canadian hook

D's, then sew skirt along sides marked X to form
diagonal seam. With B, work a row of sc, evenly
spaced, around lower edge of skirt.

ribbon along narrow end of tie and sew in place.
Center lining between broken lines on wrong side
of tie as shown on assembly diagram. Turn in top
raw edges and sew lining in place.
Fold sides of tie to back over lining. The crocheted edges must be cut so that they wi II butt
in order to avoid the extra bulk of a thick seam.
Before cutting tie, pin seam, then baste along each
pinned line separately, being careful. not to run
needle through both thicknesses of seam, Remove
pins and open tie. RU112 lines of closely spaced
machine stitches (or backstitch by hand) along each
basting line. The stitching will keep crochet from
raveling when it is cut. Cut seam away close to
stitching lines. Butt and whipstitch edges together.
