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.

 My netbook is refusing to play nice this week and I've lost patience with it. Instead I am bringing you some mobile phone shots.

  4. Hi Stella, it's a pain when gadgets stop working like we expect them too, but at least these days we have more gadgets to fall back on (I'm waiting for the day mobile phones can wash dishes, then I know I really do have a smart phone!).

    Your flowers look very different to ours. Photo number three looks interesting and number four looks very much like what I would call a thistle (but I am no expert!).

    Hope your Netbook starts playing nice this week!

    1. Haha - it just ran out of memory while I was trying to edit shots in DPP and I ran out of time so I just had to go with what I had.

    1. My phone is amazing at taking photos. I am ever so grateful that a whole lot of things came together at the same time (birthday gifts, post X-mas sales, new version being released so extra discount on the old version) that allowed me to get this phone when I needed it the most.

    1. Thanks Tasha, I was wishing I had my DSLR with me. I don't always take it when we walk the dogs and invariably they are the days I wish I had.

    1. Thank you Mary. A netbook is like a tablet with a keyboard, or a 3/4 size laptop. It's not a real grown-up computer but it's what I've got.
