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.

Fungi

Don't eat these mushrooms, they're very poisonous despite looking like some you can find at the grocery store.

We've had some really steady rainfall over the last couple of weeks which we desperately needed. One of the best things about the rain is the little surprise fairy homes that pop-up everywhere. More commonly known as mushrooms.

Do fairy's live here?

  2. We had a great time walking around the forest in the autumn spotting all the different types of funghi. M would run around spotting them and shout out "mushroom" at the top of her voice.
    I didn't take out my macro lens though and I kicked myself for it.

    1. These mushrooms will definitely send you to the intensive care unit! We have a book on mushrooms and apparently there are about 4 edible types in all the hundreds that grow around here. And they are really hard to tell apart.

    1. The chances are they would at the very least make you sick. How hungry must we have been to figure out which mushrooms are edible?
