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.

    1. This is the old rail-way workshops and there is a row of massive building after massive building that have been sitting there for ever doing nothing. Now they are being restored for all sorts of uses.

  2. Certainly looks like a building worth preserving. Will you be taking hots throughout the restoration? #MySundayPhoto

    1. A lot of restoration has been undertaken already to some of the buildings, and you can barely tell, others have a brand new and very modern facade so you can't even tell that it was once a historical building. I will go down and get more shots though.
