How to Crochet a Granny Square

But before we go right into our collection of squares, let’s first go over the basics of granny squares, the supplies you’ll need and even how to crochet a granny square too!

What You Need to Know

  1. Basic Crochet Stitches: Familiarize yourself with essential crochet stitches like chain (ch), slip stitch (sl st), single crochet (sc), and double crochet (dc). These stitches form the building blocks of the granny square.
  2. Tension and Gauge: Achieving consistent tension is crucial for a uniform granny square. Make sure your stitches are not too tight or too loose. Experiment with different hook sizes and yarns to achieve the desired gauge.
  3. Increasing and Turning: Learn how to create increases by working multiple stitches into the same stitch or space. You’ll also need to know how to turn your work to crochet on the opposite side.

What You Need to Have:

  1. Crochet Hooks: Choose a crochet hook appropriate for your yarn weight. Most granny squares are made with medium-weight yarn (worsted) and a hook size that complements the yarn.
  2. Yarn: Select yarn in your desired colors. Granny squares are a fantastic way to use up yarn scraps, experiment with color combinations, or stick to a single color for a classic look.
  3. Scissors: A pair of sharp scissors is essential for cutting yarn and tidying up loose ends.
  4. Yarn Needle: A yarn needle or tapestry needle is used to weave in yarn ends for a neat finish.

How to Crochet a Basic Granny Square:

  1. Start with a Magic Ring (Optional): Create a magic ring by looping the yarn around your fingers and working stitches into the ring. Alternatively, you can start with a slip knot and chain a few stitches to form a ring.
  2. Crochet Rounds: You will then chain and work the granny square pattern with double crochets and chains.
  3. You can repeat this pattern for as many rounds as you like, changing colors if desired.
  4. Finishing: When your granny square reaches the desired size, fasten off the yarn, leaving a tail for weaving in. Weave in all yarn ends using a yarn needle.

Remember, practice makes perfect! Don’t be discouraged if your first granny square isn’t perfect – each one you make will expand your skills. As you become more comfortable with the basic granny square, you can explore variations, color combinations, and more intricate patterns to create unique and stunning crochet projects.
