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.

 Welcome to BFF HOPPY EASTER Blog Hop and Linky!

The Bloggy Friends Fun gang are bringing you another awesome Holiday Blog Hop where each of us share some fabulous fun stuff to try at home. We had so much fun at the I heart Valentines day hop we've decided we'll be doing more of them.

This month we get to hop from blog to blog finding all the Easter eggs and crafts just like the Easter Bunny! We hope you enjoy the hunt!

To add your project to the link-up simply scroll down and you will find the 'add your link' button.

Here's 3 eggs to get you started on filling your basket.

These crochet eggs are great scraps of yarn projects. Some of you may recognise the yarn from the Backloop Chevron Throw I made last year, this yarn seems destined to make back loop crochet projects.

That's right, all three of these little eggs are back loop crochet patterns. To go to the crochet pattern just click the egg!

    1. I've never noticed a traditional colour palette for Easter here. Rainbow colours with lots of red and yellow is the closest description I guess :o) Green is also common with blues, oranges, pinks all making an appearance.

    1. I tried hunting for some patterns and it seemed most of them were 3D - I wanted flat eggs and this happened :o) Gotta put them on a beanie I think.
