Default Basic Granny Square Tutorial

Hi all Here is a photo tutorial on how to make a basic granny square. This tutorial shows step by step of how to make 3 rounds. This particular square measures about 5 inches.

You can continue these instructions to make a full sized afghan, or you can choose to make smaller squares and sew them together to make a patchwork-type afghan It's a lot of fun and there are TONS of different options to do with this.

Here is the pattern in pdf form:

If you don't have an adobe account (it's free) you can sign up for one here and you should be able to download my pdf's and save them to your computer:

All, right. After like 50 tries, I produced this below. It seems a bit uneven

No it's perfect!! Great job!

I'll give you a little hint... crochet projects always look uglier at the beginning and then get prettier So don't worry if your pieces don't lay flat or if you're "square" blanket looks like it's psychedelically rotating to the left It happens to all of us! Just keep swimming... just keep swimming...

yes!

very nice!, now keep at it. We check back with you when it has 23 feet sides!

the 'perfect' shape comes after you finish it.
It's called blocking. but it's not necessary unless you make doilies or models for magazines.

and it looks more like what you are going after when you have more rounds going, too!
