Perfect Granny Square Crochet Pattern

Learn how to create a seam free, single sided Crochet Granny square for perfect results every time.

The humble Granny Square is the crochet staple of Nanna's everywhere, which is how it came to be known as a 'Granny Square'. Originally it was just called a crochet square.

The Granny Square is often the very first thing we are taught when learning to crochet, so it would follow that it would be simple to have a perfect square every time and those new to crochet often get discouraged when this is not the case.

However, to get a perfect square actually requires a bit of experience, good fundamentals and advanced row starting techniques, otherwise you are left with seams, the reverse side of stitches showing every second row or even a slight spiral effect.

This granny square is made without turning your work and has a right and a wrong side.

Welcome to my blog

I guess this is the part where I welcome you to my blog and tell you how exciting and awesome I hope it will be or something like that. And really, you ARE very welcome here!



However I'm not going to make any promises as to awesomeness or excitement, nor will I promise regular posts, good photo's, helpful tutorials & tips or even that my ramblings will make sense. I'm going to give it a go of course (or you wouldn't be reading this). I'm really new to this whole blogging thing and have a lot to learn so I'll hope you'll forgive any bad lay out, blogging faux pars, put-you-to-sleep ramblings and anything else I'm likely to stuff up along the way. Feel free to let me know if you think I could improve something.

By the way, I know I will provide a confusing mix of imperial and metric measurements, I use both and often I'll use them in the same project - sorry about that.

Oh, I nearly forgot, it's all about costuming, mostly historical stuff...enjoy!

  1. I just love your photo of the Duchesse Consort of Florence but am eternally pleased I don't have to wear clothes like her! Fine for an hour or so maybe though! Thank you so much for joining in with #MyFirstBlogPost :)

  2. I don't know, I think she was one of the luckier ones in history, where clothing was padded and corsets and crinolines were rare. Generally quite comfortable, I would love to have her wardrobe.
