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.

Last week I also finished an interesting read,

A hundred years hence : the expectations of an optimist

by Russell, T. Baron

Published 1905

The author imagined many things that have indeed become reality. One of the things he imagined was world peace. Perhaps in another 100 years?
“I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right.” ― Albert Einstein

  1. I hope we'll have peace in 100 years. And we will once Christ comes back and establishes His kingdom on earth.

  3. I agree completely with Albert Einstein, I don't want to give up the hope of peace. A thoughtful post in the face of a horrid week xx
