A Granny Square is a great little beginner project, you can either just make one to practice, or made a few and sew them together to make a blanket. I’m hoping these videos are easy to follow, I’ve broken them up into three rounds, so you can go at your own pace.
I’ve used a size 5mm crochet hook, and 8 ply yarn.
Just if it’s at all helpful I’ve included a bit of a written pattern as well for each step, below are the abbreviations I’ve used:
ch – Chain
dc – Double crochet
ss – Slip stitch
I’d also like to apologise for saying “crocher” instead of “crochet”, it’s a bit of a bad habit. So, lets begin.
Ch 5, ss into the first ch, ch 3, then working into the circle space – 4 dc, ch 2, 4 dc, ch 2, 4 dc, ch 2, 4 dc, ch 2, ss into the top of the ch 3.
Ch 3, working back into the ch 2 space 3 dc, ch 1, *working into the next ch 2 (corner) space 4 dc, ch 2, 4dc, ch 1, repeat from * into the next 2 corner spaces, 4 dc into the last corner space, ch 2 and ss into the top of the first ch 3.
Ch 3, working back into the ch 2 space 3 dc, ch 1, working into the ch 1 space 4dc, ch 1, *working into the ch 2 corner space 4 dc, ch 2, 4 dc, ch 1, working into the ch 1 space 4dc, ch 1. Repeat from * into the next two corner and ch 1 spaces. 4 dc into the last corner space, ch 2, and ss into the top of the first ch 3.
If you found this helpful and you’d like to see more crochet tutorials, or you have any questions, comment below. I was thinking next video could be a couple of different crochet flowers or a Granny Square beanie, to show you how you can turn a simple granny square into a sweet little hat for yourself or your child. Let me know which you’d rather see! (Or if you’d like me to do both)
