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.

Rocky Water


I'm always fascinated by running water, mosses and rocks and when all three come together it's extra special.

  1. Been visiting the outback I take it? I'm also fascinated by moving water and rocks. It just teels the story of the land, doesn't it? #MySUndayPhoto

    1. Oh gosh, I guess you could call it that, we call this a 'tourist trap', ahem, 'tourist attraction'. There's a big river rafting event held here each year when the water is much higher.

    1. I've lived by the sea and it is a completely different sound to a stream, right now I have to travel to hear either.
