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.

When I was shooting the flirting doves I also captured a few extra snaps.

As always be sure to hover over each image for the story of each shot

very romantic all this flirting and serenading under the moon (yes during the day)

We've also seen our spotted dove couple hunting for a good nesting spot in our yard, until the dogs scared them off. Not far though, they can be seen flying over our yard into the larger trees of both our neighbours.

  1. Stella, no production of stories, when I hover. Maybe I hover incorrectly.??
    So glad your doves are nesting again!

    1. Which web browser do you use? Do you wait a moment for the short description to show? Very strange :(

  3. Hi Stella, lovely photos. I love the hairy detail of the caterpillar. And how different your birds are from the few we get here. I would never have recognized the spotted dove as a dove.

    1. We get the normal boring old rock dove very much like yours too, but these native ones are so pretty.
