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.

Storage Table

This is what the cutting table looked like this morning.

It's also been hot, no-aircon-fan-only-pretend-it's-a-sauna hot. This does not make me want to jump in and get sewing especially when I have a zillion other things that need doing on the computer under the big ceiling fan in the lounge room.

But it is the 26th today. That means there are only 2 more days to get some progress made for this months HSM challenge.

So even though it was stinking hot and I was suffering a bad case of 'idon'wanna' I made some room on the cutting table transforming it from a storage table to workspace, hunted down my research notes and got to sewing.

Tomorrow I'll show you how it all went.

  1. You should see my craft room/office. It's a disaster. I'm currently renovating and reorganizing. It's not exactly inspirational and I have to kick myself in the butt to do anything. Lol.
