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.

Celebrating our 'First' September

You know those days where you feel like you might have bitten off more then you can chew?

It's felt a bit like that around here this month, but it's been so worth it! 

Purfylle is now on Pinterest! It's so easy to lose yourself pining all the things. 

Purfylle also has a Facebook page. Squeeee!! There's a bit to learn about managing a page but I'm finding my feet. I'd love for you to pop in and say hello!

September has been a big month of 'firsts'.

  • My first guest post which was a great learning experience.
  • Partying hard at my first Linky Party's, which are a lot of fun, full of inspiration and some really lovely bloggers. 
  • Sharing my first (for the blog) recipe.
  • Undertaking my first challenge. Perhaps you did too?
  • Completing the first (long awaited) bobbin lace caul.
  • Adding the Pin-it button for pictures - hover over a picture with your mouse and it should be right there in the top left hand corner, click and pin(terest) to your hearts content!
  • Did you notice? Up there in the top right, a suite of social media buttons! Another first for the blog. Now you can link to Purfylle the way that suits you the best with a click of the mouse, so much easier.
  • I also shared my first costume memory.
Now that's all underway I should be able to focus on sharing some more projects with you. 

Stay tuned for the next Maintenance Monthly post in October.

I'll be sharing more Incomplete Projects and discussing if they should be classified as a WIP or UFO.

Here's a sneak preview...

Yes, that is super hard to photograph counter change fabric in green with a pink undertone.

There's been some behind the scenes stuff too, starting an editorial calendar, adding the logo to images, figuring out how to respond to comments as Purfylle, and listing Purfylle as the author on posts.

Turning off that nasty captcha thing (which I was sure I had already removed before) and fixing links that weren't opening in a new tab, (feel free to leave me a note if this happens to you and I'll fix it.)

And I've added a little note to anyone leaving a comment, see, just down there.

What was new for you in September? Perhaps you learnt how to do something new, had a new experience, tried a new recipe or met some great people. Share your 'news' in the comments.
