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.

10 Things You Didn't Know About Me

It's the little things that all add up to make us our unique selves; likes, dislikes, personality traits, things we own, skills we have. Here's some of my quirks.
  1. The only cooked fruit I like is granny smith apples.
  2. I believe jam ruins everything.
  3. I'm stubborn.
  4. I have a four-poster bed.
  5. Cordial is fine, so long as it's lemon or lime flavoured.
  6. I have an unreasonable amount of costume jewellery.
  7. I have only discovered the tastiness that is chorizo in the last few months
  8. I actually put up the Christmas decorations on 1st of December this year. This is big, the decorations haven't been up for several years. 
  9. I have yet to bake cookies that could truly be considered a success. 
  10. Ada likes to sit on top of laundry straight out of the drier and I will use it as an excuse not to fold the laundry.

What is something that makes you YOU?


  1. Great post! I love your excuse not to fold laundry. Mine is.. I hate folding laundry. So I don't. One of my biggest things that is me. I have a huge callus on my thumb that I've had since I had a baby blanket. I rub it and chew it when I'm nervous or anxious which is every time I'm out in the public. My husband can't stand it. :)

    1. What a cute little quirk you have. I love your laundry excuse, I might just start using it when Ada isn't around.

  2. There is no such thing as too much jewelry, costume or otherwise! I don't fold the laundry because I have a king sized bed, I'm the only person in it 95% of the time, so it becomes a big laundry basket.

    1. I used to believe you couldn't have too much jewellery. I really did. But when I realised I needed more then 3 shelves (loooonnng shelves) I started to question if maybe I'm wrong. I love your laundry storage system. I'd have to get a second bed to be able to use it though. I think you could totally market that as a think 'King size laundry basket!' Awesome idea. :D
