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.

I've dug into the archives and found this pic to share with you today because I haven't taken the camera out enough recently. This was taken on the Canon PowerShot Pro, the first digital camera I got my hands on.

  1. Hi Stella, your anthills look a little more exciting than ours. Our ants just produce holes in the ground. I love it when we see a long trail of busy ants, but I've found that when I take a photo of them, it's somewhat lacking.

    1. We get just plain holes in the ground too, mostly in clay areas, but when it's soft sand we get these instead.

    1. I remember being really disappointed with these shots because I missed the focus on most of them.

  4. Ew! We have enough trouble keeping them out of the house, a whole mound - yuck but fascinating to watch them at work.

    1. This was down by the river where they seem to be everywhere. I much prefer them there then in the house but every summer they seem to show up.

    1. That's our summer here! Some areas are worse then others and the further north you the less cold weather there is. You just get used to living with them.
