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.

  3. Great party, as always! Thanks for hosting!

    I'm off now to do more research on these penannular pins. The thought of who made it, wore it, if it was a gift from someone or a hand-me-down; these things intrigue me. But most of all: How in the world do they stay put?

    1. They pin part rotates around the circle once you've pushed it through the fabric. That way the circle part sort of locks it into place. I guess it's hard to explain. I should take a photo I guess.

  4. That brooch is amazing! Pinterest is a little treasure trove of ideas. - Tasha

    1. It's my favourite of my pins, I wish I had more call to use it.
