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.

A little less of a disaster now.

I forgot to tell you yesterday, the sewing room is now a little less of a disaster.

multiple pencil sharpeners

I should have got rid of the excess pencil sharpeners, but I don't know which one works well on the tailors pencils, which works well on lead pencils and which works best for graphite. So I'll do that next time I need to sharpen those things.

cord thinga-ma-bobs

And no, I didn't donate those black thingy-ma-bobs for cords. I haven't decided yet, but I will probably keep a few and sell the rest or something.

I know, I should have thrown out the blunt seam rippers, but I don't remember which ones are blunt - so I'll do that next time I need to use them. Until then they are in that cute little box with my crane scissors so I know just where to lay my hands on them.

My favourite tools are still within reach and all the rest are put away where they should be. Yes, that is another pencil shapener, why do you ask?
