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.

It's been a busy day acquainting myself with the KNK, better known as a Klick-n-Kut.


I had some problems finding the right writing implement and settled on an Artline pen but it wouldn't fit into the pen holder. I was able to use it without the holder but that meant it was off centre for using in conjunction with the cutting blade.

When hubby came home I shared my woes and he suggested we just go buy a pen that fits. We ended up choosing some gel pens in black and blue as well as a pack with gold and silver.

Although the photos are blurry because it's super late and our night time lighting is rather lacking you can still see the different colours the different inks make.  The gel pen comes out lighter then the Artline but the silver looks smashing if I do say so myself.

    1. I'm a bit worried I haven't left myself enough time to prepare.

    1. Thanks :o) It's certainly better then nothing at all and I think I rather like the minimalist approach of just my website on them.
