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.

Crochet Granny Squares For a Baby Blanket

Some of my readers may remember me talking about my sweet old neighbour before.  She is in her 70's and is now blind in one eye and loosing her sight in the other. These little lemon yellow squares are her handiwork. She started this sweet project many years ago and now she is unable to finish it.


When she showed me and spoke about it, I could see the regret that all that work would go to waste and the little baby blanket will never be finished.

I have offered to finish it for her, she still has the pattern which I thought she had given to me with the squares but somehow I've ended up with a different one instead. I'll ask her for it and I hope to show you the pattern with the finished project.

Have you ever finished someone else's project for them?
