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. I didn't even think about the sky - that's what it usually looks like here. Blue, with a bit more blue, broken up with some blue.

    1. In my apple tree. They come and steal all the apples every year. People keep asking why we don't net the tree to keep them from being stolen. I think having the Twenty-eights visit is reason enough.

    1. I've tried for 3 weeks to get a decent shot of him to link up - I wanted one of him with an apple in his mouth. Maybe next time.

  7. Does he have 28 rings on his neck? Is he the 28th parrot photo??
    Then, I read your answer to Pixiedust, and figured maybe 28 is their name. Ain't I smart??!! ;)
