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.

31 Things in 31 Days, Days 17-24 The Fail

Day 17: Rude pen

Saturday 17th October


I don't like this pen so I decided to pull the refill out to use later and ditch the pen. 



Both quickly ended up in the bin. I was really grateful the ink didn't end up everywhere. 


Day 18: Fail

Sunday 18th October 


I failed to do any decluttering at all. But that's okay right? I've still decluttered more then one thing per day over all, and my goal was just one thing each day. It's okay to fail. It's okay to not have kept to the plan. The important thing is to not let it stop me from continuing and the next day I just kept going, I didn't make myself catch up. I just continued on as though I hadn't missed a day. That I've only missed once in 18 days straight is pretty good. 

Day 19: Plastic hang bags

Monday 19th October 


More 'ruddy containers!


Day 17: Imposters

Tuesday 20th October 


Empty cotton reel, empty ribbon reels, ribbon bow, dusty old decorative flowers, some do-dads. 


Day 21: Used trim

Wednesday 21st October 


Old used, salvaged cotton tape. I won't use it again, salvaging this was a waste of my time and it's a waste of space. I don't need it.


Day 22: Upcycle that's not to be

Thursday 22nd October 


The trim on this wrap skirt is ever so pretty, but it is so old and worn and full of pulls it is not worth salvaging either. I was using it as a dust cover on my lace pillow but the fabric is so fine it totally failed at that.


Day 23: Broken knitting needles

Friday 23rd October 



Knitting needles. Dog chewed knitting needles from a knitting UFO. I could keep them for use as stitch holders or turning stuff inside out....I've got plenty of other knitting needles that can do the same thing. Just because it could be used doesn't mean it will be used. I'm not keeping 'maimed' goods any more.


Day 24: Scarf hangers

Saturday 24th October


Tiny hangers. I'll use these for something! NOT. I'm not keeping packaging any more either

    1. It was rather poor manners I thought when I was trying to do the right thing for the planet and all!
