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.

Can You Spot It?


While out walking the dogs we saw this. 



It's the Royal Automobile Club rescue helicopter. I wonder what they were trying to spot? I hope they found it.

    1. Yes, I meant the helicopter but it was also a question to the people in the helicopter. I hope they spotted whatever they were looking for.

  7. If you didn't hear any news or gossip about an accident, then perhaps it was just a training exercise? I love how you can take a photo and turn it into a mystery!

    1. That's what I was thinking too, or maybe they were checking on environmental things, this shot was taken at a local wetland area and it probably needs to be assessed for fire breaks and such.
