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.

Wool Gathering - Starting Caul v.2

The bobbins are nearly ready for caul version 2.

After drawing up the pattern and making a pricking for the new version, I  made some more design changes and need to do another pricking. So there is a 2.1 and a 2.2.

I don't yet know how it will turn out but I can hardly wait. I've just got to find the time to make it, hence the short and sweet post today.

Do you have a project you want to jump in and get started on?
