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. At first I thought this was a real person on a diving board and then I noticed it isn't. What is this...some kind of advertisement for a company or sign at a swimming club? Really cool capture, though. Thanks for sharing and linking on #WW!

    1. She's a sign I suppose for a public swimming pool. She's been there for years - well, sort of - she gets stolen every year (or parts of her do) so at the start of swimming season she is back up as good as new with a new swimming outfit and everything. She's still in one piece so far this year :O)

    2. Ahah, are you serious? She gets stolen?

    3. Sometimes just parts of her - poor thing. We've conjectured about whether there is someone out there with all her missing limbs. She seems to get more cables to hold her on each year.

  2. I love her! There's something very surreal and very cool about these pictures.
