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.

Pinbellish 20: a pinning celebration

Welcome to Pinbellish!

A Pinning Celebration



I've been really busy this week, how about you? I'm still working on my blog overhaul and learning a lot about CSS and HTML and Blogger specific code. But right now it's time for a break from template changes, updating  landing pages and old posts and it's time to PARTY! Now let's all go and PIN ALL THE THINGS!

Brass Pins


Brass does not rust and therefore historically was a great choice of pin for working with lace and fabrics before stainless steel pins became widely available. Brass will corrode however so these days brass pins will generally be coated with a clear coat to impede this process.
Need a recipe to clean your brass pins? Jenny Brandis has the answer.
