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.

All That Glitters...

All that glitters... probably clutter.

This was a pretty blue hair tie, that I don't think I ever used even once.  But I kept it, "just in case"!

Lets look  a little closer.

It's so dusty you'd call it dirty, and yes, that is a spider web. I tossed it.

Have you kept something unused for so long you've ended up having to toss it out? No? Just me then.


  1. its not just you believe me lol

    1. hahah - thank you! It's always good to know you're not alone.

  2. With five children, I have adopted regular purges to try to keep clutter to a minimum. These purges have deleted pet rocks, school projects, and "whatever that is" from our household. I try to keep the purges quiet because if the kids don't know to miss something, then they don't know to be upset. And most of these "must keep" items haven't be played with for months. Thanks for this humorous, yet honest post. :)

    1. I have no idea how you manage to keep on top of it all with 5 children! You must find some real doozies!
