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.

  6. It's like they need an air traffic controller! I'm picturing them all yelling at each other, "George I told you to wait until I was clear!" "Fred get out of the way!" "You two better move it, I'm coming in hot!" (I haven't had my coffee yet this morning, so I might be a bit loopy ;)

    thank you for sharing with us again this week!
