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.

This super stylish original 1950's fur felt hat is from my personal collection. I'm giving you a sneak peak before she goes on sale at the Guildford Heritage Festival.

And why not some hat pins too?

For the last week I've been struggling with back pain and things are falling by the way side left, right and centre. Email is piling up, all things blogging are being put on hold as much as possible and I still have a fair stall to prepare.

Despite all of that I am still determined to make headway on getting my costume ready to wear to the fair, however it does mean I won't be posting as much over the next two weeks but then everything should go back to normal.


  1. You going to sell that gorgeous hat?? Oh stella, I think you have a fever, you better lie down!!
    I'm so sorry to hear your back is acting up. I'll pray that you are much better soon.

    1. My back is still being rude, but the hat didn't sell. I guess I asked too much for it.
