Lacy, sexy summer tops. Chic, cozy sweaters. Chunky, funky hats and colorfully crafty afghans—it all starts with the single, simple act of wrapping a hook around a strand of yarn.

Speak the lingo. Make the stuff. And give old granny square a chance.© 2013 Debbie Stoller / Workman · Reproduced with permission.
