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.

Pumpkin Top UFO


This pumpkin coloured top is made of cheesecloth. I have one finished and one half finished. I can't even remember why I made it. Maybe it was to test a pattern block.

In any case, this is one UFO that I am quite happy to simply remove from the pile of unfinished projects, right along with the finished version and my entire cheesecloth stash.

Update on Crochet Lace Tape Top

Was there progress?

I've taken the current work off the dress form and found all of the extra yarn. I've put it in my current work pile. Does that count as progress?

I have a confession to make, I am working on a new crochet project which I am hoping to finish as a Christmas gift so it is getting priority at the moment.

Did I enjoy working on it?

It felt great to finally have my dress form free of this project.

Will I continue to work on it?

YES, I hope to even finish it one day.



That concludes another week of #FinishItFriday

I'm really pleased to have another UFO out of the sewing room. What was the last UFO you decided you couldn't be bothered with?

Happy Finishing!
