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.


I'm sure I was going to write about something incredibly interesting to share with you today.

Instead I got lost in the sewing room creating for the HSM March stash busting challenge.

Here's a sneak peak.

 The image above is the fashion fabric. The one below is the lining fabric.

It feels good to be sewing. What do you do like to get lost doing?


  1. Oooh, it can be sewing or even writing. Sometimes, even just thinking about what to create next!

    1. I can totally get lost in planning! I have to be careful of that, it doesn't get anything made ;)

  2. Interesting!! I have to get back to sewing when i go part time in the Fall....
    Thanks for stopping by!! I think you will enjoy Mr. Selfridge!!


    1. It's probably too working class for Mr Selfridge to put on display, but perhaps the gown to go with it will be more Selfridge worthy - I guess I'll have to watch to really now :o) I hope you get some great sewing projects done when you have the chance :o)

  3. I get lost all the time!! lol!! Thanks for sharing on My 2 Favorite Things on Thursday - Link Party!! Hope you come back tomorrow and share some more...I love having you!! Pinned!!
