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.

How To Add Beads To Your Spool Knitting



If you're new to spool knitting check out our Spool Knitting Tutorial before learning to add beads.

  • learn how to use your spool knitter to make cord, 
  • learn how to make three different types of cord; and 
  • how to make a necklace with your finished cords.


Once you're up to speed on how to spool knit you can start purfylling (embellishing) your cords with beads.

Adding Beads To Spool Knitting:


 1. Thread your beads onto your yarn before you start. 





2. Start your knitting as normal and once you've completed the first round you can begin to add beads.





3. Push a bead up your yarn to the space in-between spool pegs and then make the next stitch (or loop).




4. Push your next bead up, make another loop and so on.




It's important your beads are small enough to fit through the centre of your spool knitter.



Try adding beads every other stitch to get stripes of beads on your cord.

  3. Love this! But does that mean you have to cut your yarn to the measured length first?

    1. Not at all, you can keep going until you've run out of yarn but you do need to thread all of your beads on first.
