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.

Fallen Soldiers Names on the Memorial

Throughout history the 11th November has been a day with some pretty memorable events:

  • Popes elected,
  • treaties signed,
  • invasion fleets sailed, 
  • laws for compulsory school attendance passed, 
  • Ned Kelly hung, 
  • Washington officially became an American state, 
  • Poland declared independence, 
  • new altitude record set, 
  • spacecrafts have launched, and
  • Republics declared. 
However in Commonwealth countries the 11th of November is most noted for the end of World War I and is referred to as Remembrance Day.

Whether or not you stop at the 11th minute of the 11th hour of the 11th day in remembrance of the soldiers who died in the line of duty, take a moment to stop and smell the roses, for those soldiers were fighting so that today we are free to appreciate the aroma of roses.
