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 keeping it!

I'm keeping it! A clutter story.

About three vehicles ago I made seat covers for our car. Before the covers were put on the seats the car was rear-ended and written off.

The seat covers were put away never to be seen again.

Going through all of my boxes of fabric and half finished projects I found them. My fist impulse was to declutter them. And maybe I should have but something made me pause.

I wondered if they might fit my sewing chair. The chair I am for ever trying to protect from cat fur.

And they do! They aren't a perfect fit but they are better then the towel I was using. I could rework them but I'm not going to. The covers are perfectly functional as they are.

I did my best to get some good photos to show you, but these will have to do.

It's okay to keep them if I'm using them right? Even if they haven't been used for the last decade or so? Right? Oh well at least Ada seems to approve. 


  1. Ha, ha! I love how your cat loves your sewing chair. I hope the seat covers work well for you -- and if you're using them, then yes, you should keep them. :)
