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.

Just toss it already!

Do you keep stuff long past when you should have? Paper bags are useful, they really truly are.

But at some point it is no longer sensible to keep them. Recognising when to toss them should be easy, right? Right?

Apparently not. Two of these bags have dates on them for 1998 and 1999.

I tossed them all and yet there was a part of me that still said 'Surley you should keep that limited edition Jean Paul Gaultier Valentines Day bag'?

Yeah, I told the voice to go jump and crumpled that bag up first!

Have you kept something for over a decade (and a half) that you should've just thrown out?


  1. I don't think I have anything that's been here that long that I don't have a reason to still have, but this upcoming move has me donating and tossing out a lot of stuff. That's actually what I'm doing today.

    1. Well I guess I wouldn't have kept them quite that long either if I'd looked in my storage room a little more regularly, I used to move quite a bit in my 20's and it really makes you consider what you could be bothered packing. I hope your move goes well!

  2. I keep weird stuff as well! I have so many paper bags and empty makeup containers!

    1. I recently got rid of all the empty makeup containers too!
