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.

    1. Kangaroo meat is becoming more popular so it might show up on the shelves in the future, but you can use beef or any protein instead.

  2. I had to do a double take on the kangaroo meat. I was like wait, what did that say? What an adorable fur baby you have there! I think the 'roo stew must have been a hit! Thanks for bringing your puppy recipe over to the Sunday's Recipe Wrap-up!

    1. Hahaha - sorry about that, it didn't occur to me that it would be such an unusual meat to non-Australians. My dogs go crazy for their home cooked meals, getting a photo before they ate it all was a real challenge! Thanks for dropping in. I'll be sure to link up next time I do a recipe.

  3. Same here. I also had to do a double take with the kangaroo meat! ;) Looks really delicious though, no wonder your dog polished their bowl ;) #animaltales.

    1. The last dinner I made them I used fish from the freezer that was a bit old. The bowls got polished at least 3 times.

  4. Clearly a bowl-licking-good recipe for your dogs! I imagine this also smells so much better than store bought cans. #animaltales

    1. Freki (lab x) didn't care what we fed him but little Miss Fussy Pots (aka Geri) would sulk and not eat her tinned food so we started cooking dinner. We ended up switching to dog loaf from the supermarket fridge and she has been a happy eater ever since, but we still cook for them as often as we can be bothered because it costs less.

  6. I have never seen kangaroo meat here in France but like you say, you could substitute other meats. I reckon Harry and Saari would be jumping for joy (hee hee) at the thought of eating this. Many thanks for joining in with #AnimalTales with a foodie animal post.

    1. Kangaroo meat is high in protein, low in fat and affordable so it's a good option for us. I'd never do it if it took more effort then just throwing it all in a pot and stirring it occasionally. It's great for diet foods too because everything gets the meaty flavour.

  7. Ash the Dog says - Yum! Yum! Get in my tum. This sounds very yummy and judging by the clean bowl, tastes very yummy too!! #animaltales

    1. It doesn't seem to matter what we make, apparently if it comes out of a human pot it automatically tastes better, even though it was burnt last time.

  8. What a beautiful dog! I make a similar stew for my dogs, with chicken, as a special treat. They just love a variation from their usual!
