Here is a quick and easy gift to make, it takes about an hour to finish. This Crochet Granny Square Coaster Pouch Pattern came about after having made a few granny squares recently and then wondering what I could do with them that was a little bit different. And I thought of this!

The Granny Square Book
Granny squares are to crochet what pieced squares are to quilting. They originated with pioneer women using up precious scraps of yarn to make blankets for their families, and over the years, many recognized, named patterns have been handed down from one generation to the next. Beyond this treasury of 75 different granny square motifs, Margaret Hubert shows the evolution of the granny square, how it can be used and interpreted in different ways with different yarns, and how today’s crocheter can design her own projects using the granny squares of her choice with the yarn choices of today.
Just as Margaret learned from her grandmother and mother and then passed the skill down to her daughter and granddaughter, each generation finds new uses and artistic ways to interpret granny squares.
