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.

Black Swan Cygnets

Black Swan Cygnet

These black swan cygnet shots were taken at the end of August and it's almost Christmas! This year seems to have just evaporated. It's hard to imagine these white fluff balls will grow up to be black.

  2. They look so soft and fluffy

    Thank you for linking up

  3. Aw cute little babies, we are waiting on a suspected pregnant goat to give birth which will be tricky to manage in December, thankfully it is warming up this week. Your signets are delightful.

  4. I'm not sure that I have ever seen black swan cygnets before, beautiful

  5. You know, people always say signets are a bit ugly but they're so beautiful aren't they?

  6. Aren't they gorgeous? We have mute swans on the canal near us, and it's been fab watching the cygnets grow up

  7. They are so cute! Never understood why they are called ugly ducklings!

  8. Aw - They are sooooo cute! I think it's neat how their eyes aren't red yet, either. There was a pair of black swans at an animal refuge I used to do work for, and they used to scare the daylights out of me. They would sneak up on people and challenge them with their wings spread... It always scared me to turn around and see that huge bird with it's mean-looking red eyes! But I've never seen their adorable little babies. Thanks for sharing them!
