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.

Pinner Question: 

"Should we be re-pinning from Pinterest (an actual re-pin) OR from the blog the pin came from (brand spanking new pin)."

With a traditional link-up party, we are reminded to pin features 'from the source' rather than from the link-up party. This way the pin links back to the blogger's post and not the link-up party post.

Pinbellish is a little different as we link a PIN that has already been shared on Pinterest, which already links back to the correct blog.

Pinterest gives preference to pins that are more frequently re-pinned. This means the more re-pins a pin has the more people will see it in their home feed and in searches.

So, long story longer... Pinbellish Pin Party please re-pin the great ideas you find here from Pinterest. There is no need to actually visit the blog it came from and then pin it, that's why we ask you to link up the pin URL - not your blog post. 

Or as I like to pontificate:

At Pinbellish Pin Party please repin pins in Pinterest to promote Pinterest prioritising your pins to purfylle your Pinterest pinning pleasure
