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.

Christmas Baubles Back in Action

Christmas Baubles


I've had these large Christmas baubles for years.


They've stayed in storage the whole time because we only have room for a small Christmas tree. I've been pondering what to do with them, should I donate them? Should I glue them into a wreath or a Christmas tree shape or something else altogether?

I rather like their muted tones and vintage feel and I really would like to hang them on a tree someday. 

When Crafty Allie asked for some guest bloggers to participate in her 12 Days of Christmas event over on her blog I put my hand up. I figured it was the perfect opportunity to do something with these baubles so I could actually use them to decorate our home this Christmas.

I asked hubby to get the baubles down from storage for me and I found the hot glue gun (which I didn't end up using).


The perfect idea hit me just as I was about to start gluing, an idea that would still allow me to hang these baubles on a tree someday if we ever get a big enough Christmas tree.
