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. I've tried for a few planes and with the black and white on this one providing so much contrast it made it easier to get a reasonable shot.

  5. Great photo. Rather than trying to get an expensive lens, i am going to try and get a 1.7 AF-S Teleconverter. This will help make my 300mm lens in to 510mm lens. Anyways. thanks for sharing.

    1. I'd be happy with just a 300mm but I'll have to make do with my zoom for now.
