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. Awww. This photo made me remember and miss all our dogs in the Philippines. We have 6 when I left and now there are only 3 sadly. One of the reason why I want to go home. I miss them dearly and I am thinking if they still remember me after not seeing me for 5 years.

    1. Six dogs must be a bit of handful. I'm sorry you never got to say goodbye. I am sure they will remember you. Dogs have great memories.

    1. He does, and he puts on his best sad face anytime he thinks it will get him more food, which it does, quite regularly.

    1. He likes to come up and bop your elbow with his head to see if you'll share whatever you've got. He got his share - just not how he wanted it!
      Sorry for the late reply - I'm going back to see what comments I've missed.
