Twenty to Make: Granny Square Flowers Reviews

From Underground Crafter 6/8/2018:
Granny Square Flowers by May Corfield is a crochet flower motif project booklet in the Search Press Twenty to Make series. The booklet is the size of a piece of letter paper folded in half, and it's slender enough to fit in your project bag. It's also available in a taller, slimmer size as part of the 20 on the Go Patterns (50c a Pattern) series. Granny Square Flowers opens with May's biography and includes a dedication to her parents. A list of pattern abbreviations (with both US and UK terminology) is also included on the same page. In May's introduction, she shares her love of gardening as the inspiration for this book.
The booklet includes a Crochet Know-How section, which shares tips for choosing yarn and hooks, getting proper tension (gauge), and blocking. May used DMC Petra No. 3 crochet cotton and a 2.5 mm crochet hook for all of the included patterns, but you can use your favorite weight of yarn with an appropriate size hook instead.
The booklet then moves into the patterns. Each pattern includes a list of materials and tools, the yardage required, the approximate finished sizes, tips for creating a project using the motifs, and at least two pictures of the motif (typically the motif alone and one included in a larger project). The instructions are clearly written and consistent. The patterns are written with US abbreviations with UK abbreviations in parentheses. The booklet closes with acknowledgements.
Granny Square Flowers is a fun and portable collection of floral crochet motifs. My favorites are the Clematis, the Sunflower (available here), and the Rose, which is included as a pattern excerpt below. This is a pattern booklet that assumes you already know the basic crochet stitches and have a command of working in the round and reading patterns. If you like to make motifs and are looking for a collection of patterns you can bring with you during your journeys, Granny Square Flowers could be just what you're looking for.
