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.

  1. It's always great to explore! Your dog is having a great time in these photos. My dog would have been straight in that water, then out shaking all the water all over us.

    1. The water was a bit murky that day and she likes to see the bottom otherwise she would have jumped straight in!

  2. Looks like plenty of sniffing and poking around going on there.

    1. She's brave enough to go out and have a good investigate but our other dog isn't.

  3. That is pretty cool. You do assume Geri is going to end up in the water. #MySundayPhoto

    1. We watched wondering, it was 50/50 but she decided that spot wasn't where she wanted to go swimming that day.

    1. She pondered it, nearly did - decided it was too far down and she wasn't sure how deep the water is, Geri doesn't like it if she can't see the bottom.

    1. The water is further down then it seems in the shot, she decided to find somewhere shallower to go for her swim.

    1. Oh she jumped right in! Just not off the log, which was a bit too far away from the water for her.
