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.

Scratchy

...because a flower is prettier to look at then a tissue box

I'm sick - which explains my lack of motivation late last week - the scratchy throat, stuffy head, running a temperature kind of sick.

When I'm sick I like to bundle myself up on the couch, watch some costumey shows and do a spot of crochet. But I can't crochet because of my stupid shoulder and I can't watch shows because hubby is working from home.

My head is full of fuzzy and I can't think clearly enough to write coherently structured, amazingly awesome posts, or even just plain sensical posts. (Surley sensical is a word right? Nonsensical is a word so sensical must be, however spell check disagrees. Pfffft to spell check!)

Anyway, that's if for me for today. I'm going to go and snuggle up on the couch with the dogs and do as little as possible.
