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.

Knitted Scarf With Beaded Fringe

A zillion years ago, or maybe even a bazillion I did a rather poor job of knitting a scarf and giving it a beaded fringe.

I have held onto this scarf because, despite it's faults, I still like it.

That particular shade of grey knitted together with the silver thread is so pretty, the photos don't capture the delicate effect of the yarn and thread mix.

I will never use it as a scarf. But the question is, what do I do with it? My self imposed rule is I can't keep UFO's.

That means I have to do something with this thing. But what? I've just had an idea for what I could do with this crazy project but I want to hear what ideas and suggestions you might have.

Now I've told you about I guess I need to add it to my project list.

  2. table runner? how long is it? you could use it as a bed scarf - if you have heard of that lol which is basically like a long skinny blanket you add across the bottom of the bed. What about redo into a tote/purse? You could alter with some more yarn/thread into a shawl and add some more beads. Could reuse as wall art - maybe cut it into 3rds with the center the biggest piece? ok outta ideas. M :)
