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.

Sharing Your Sewing Chair With Kitty


Ada cat looking anything but innocent

Looking all innocent? 


Ada cat stretching

'I'm just stretching mum'.

Ada cat upside down head scratch

'What?'

Ada cat looking innocently into the camera

'No, I'm not clawing the chair, I'm just scratching my head whilst I stretch'

Ada cat clawing with gusto

Yeah,sure, that's why that claw is all motion-blurry.

Ada cat giving a look that says your interrupting her scratching and she's not impressed

'Oh, you're still there...'

Ada cat extending her claws

Stretches out claws even further.

Ada cat imploring you to believe it's not her fault.

'It just happens, it's a compulsion. It's not my fault! You've gotta believe me. '

lots of Ada fur on the chair

And so we have fur. Lots of fur especially as we come into summer.

lots of pulls in the fabric from cat clawing

And pulls in the fabric, lots of those too.

Nap time after a good claw stretch and towel pulled back to reveal the chair

To stop my sewing chair being a mass of fur and pulls I just throw an old towel over it. Every time I want to do some sewing I swap the towel out.

Nothing could be simpler for maintaining a fur free sewing chair. And that's my Maintenance Monthly post for October. I bet you thought I had forgotten about it with today being the last day of the month and all, but it's still October, so it counts right?

    1. She takes over my chair, my bed, my sewing table! I don't know how one little cat manages it but she does.

  3. Ha ha- only cats can look that innocent when up to no good! The towel is a good idea; we have a throw on our armchair and Henry cat always grabs it when we try and pick him up ... whilst looking all innocent of course.
    Thank you so much for joining in with #AnimalTales again.

    1. Cat's are the masters of looking innocent when they aren't, the dogs try but the guilt always shows through.
