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.

Rest and Reflect

Black Boy Hill 

Black Boy hill was once covered in the unique plant for which it was named. In 1914 the site was cleared to make a camp for volunteer service men. The site remains a memorial site to our soldiers, planted out with grass trees (black boys) and rosemary for remembrance

Black Boy Hill History

Australian flag flies at half mast in honour of our ANZAC's

It has been a wet morning


Flowers 

The laying of wreaths and flowers is customary at ANZAC memorial services. 

Elaborate and expensive wreaths are often left by council members and shire representatives. 


There are the flowers brought from home wrapped with a little tin foil to maintain freshness.


The flowers accompanied by a personal message by those whose lives have been directly touched by the sacrifice of our soldiers.

Remember the ANZAC's that did not return home

And the sweet home made attempts to create wreaths and bouquets.
