Simple Instructions to Crochet Granny Squares

Those beautifully crocheted squares commonly seen in afghans are "granny squares," but they aren't just for afghans. Use them to make purses, scarves, rugs, slippers and just about anything else you can dream up. The simple instructions below will help beginners crochet granny squares fast! Enjoy!

Step 1: Slipknot

Beginner Instructions for How to Crochet a Granny Square

The first step to crocheting a granny square is to tie a slip knot and place it on your crochet hook. If you need help tying a slipknot, you can find more information here: How to Tie a Slipknot.

In this tutorial, I am using an F (5) size crochet hook and two strands of DK weight merino wool yarn held together as one.

Do you have your slipknot on your crochet hook? Then move to step 2.

Beginning of a Granny Square - The Slip Stitched Chain

Step 2: Chain Stitch

Beginner Instructions for How to Crochet a Granny Square

* Chain 6. If you do not know how to chain stitch, see, "How to Chain Stitch" for further Instructions.

* After you have chained 6 stitches, slip stitch the chain together into a ring. To do this insert the crochet hook into the first chain stitch, yarn over (grab the yarn with the crochet hook) and pull the yarn back through the chain stitch to form a ring.

Step 3: Double Crochet Around the Ring

Beginner Instructions for How to Crochet a Granny Square

You have your ring of chain stitches, now we are going to build from that foundation.

*Chain 3; This is a chain extending from the ring you made in the previous step. It serves as the first double crochet stitch in the next round.

*Double Crochet 2 times through the middle of the ring. The double crochet stitches do not go through the top of the chain stitches, as commonly done in most crochet projects. Instead, the double crochets go all the way around the chain ring made in the previous step.

*Chain 2. Double Crochet 3 times. (Repeat this 3 times.)

*Chain 2 again. Slip stitch into the 3rd chain stitch created when beginning the row, to form a complete circle of double crochet stitches.

Now, let's look at the beginning of our crocheted granny square. If you look at the spots where you chained 2, you can see 4 distinct spaces in the circle. Go ahead; poke your finger in them. Those are the spaces where we are going to be crocheting in the next round. In fact, that is what is interesting about crocheting granny squares, you are always crocheting through the open spaces in the previous row. Those 4 spaces we just talked about are going to be the corners of the granny square.

Step 4: Double Crochet More Rounds and Making Corners

Beginner Instructions for How to Crochet a Granny Square

*Slip stitch 3 times in the top of the next 3 double crochet stitches. We are doing this because we want to have our crochet hook adjacent to the space in the last row. Once the hook is in position, Chain 3. This chain represents the first double crochet stitch of the next round of our granny square.

*Double Crochet 2 times going around the chain stitch that created the space in your ring.

*Chain 2

*Double Crochet 3 more times in the same space. Chain 2.

**Beginning in the next open space of the previous round, Double Crochet 3 times. Chain 2. In the same space, Double Crochet 3 times. (Beginning at ** Repeat 3 more times.)

*Slip stitch into the 3rd chain of the chain stitch that started the round.

Let's look at our granny square. Each time we crocheted into an empty space, we created a corner of the granny square. There were four open spaces, now there are four corners. Each time you make 3 double crochets, chain 2 and make 3 more double crochets in a space, it creates a corner. The next two chain stitches are simply to stretch the crochet across to the next space. We will continue working in this method until we have enough crocheted rounds to complete our granny square.

Step 5: Finishing the Granny Square

Beginner Instructions for How to Crochet a Granny Square

The next rounds will be a basic continuation of the pattern seen in this step. They are simply to enlarge the granny square to the size you desire.

*Slip stitch 3 times to get your crochet hook adjacent to the next space in the previous round.

*Chain 3 times. This chain represents your first double crochet stitch of the round.

*Double Crochet 2 times. Chain 2. Double Crochet 3 times. This forms a corner.

**Chain 2 to get to the next open space.

*Double Crochet 3 times. in the open space.

*Chain 2 to get to the next open space.

*Double Crochet 3 times. Chain 2. Double Crochet 3 times. This forms a corner.

*Beginning at ** repeat 3 times.

*Chain 2 To get to the next open space.

*Double Crochet 3 times. in the open space.

*Chain 2. Slip Stitch to the third chain stitch in the beginning chain of the row to complete the round.

Tips and Troubleshooting; Common Granny Square Problems

Beginner Instructions for How to Crochet a Granny Square

Follow the same basic pattern in the previous step until your granny square reaches the size you desire.

Don't forget to begin each round by slip stitching to get to the next open space and Chain 3. The beginning chain is very important. Without it, you will not be able to tell where your round began.

If you make a mistake, just remove the incorrect stitches and rework.

To make multi-colored granny squares, you simply change the yarn color between rounds.

Visual for the Beginner to Crochet a Granny Square

When I was learning to crochet a Granny Square, I had to refer to several different sets of instructions before I finally figured out how to do it. One of the best resources that I came across was this color-coded drawing of the stitches available at: NezumiWorld

It shows the original chain in black. The chain that represents the first double crochet stitch and the first round of double crochets in blue. Round 3 in green and round 4 in purple. The reason that the double crochets in round 3 and 4 don't seem to come from any particular chain stitch, is because those too, are crocheted around the entire chain, creating "clusters" of double crochet stitches in the empty corner spaces.

Connect or Joining Granny Squares

To join granny squares you can sew or crochet them together. Sewing works best for squares that are not identically sized. It is also the easiest of the methods. If you can whip stitch, you can sew granny squares together.

Another method is the crochet method. To crochet the squares together, simply lay the granny squares side by side and slip stitch through the outside crochet stitch of both borders at the same time. Detailed instructions are available below. The tutorial shows photos of the crocheted method and the sewing method.

Using Granny Squares for Recycled Crafts

How to Reuse Plastic Bags to Crochet Granny Squares

Recycled crafts are a wonderful way to upcycle trash into something of value. Plastic is a perfect material to put to use in recycled crafts because it must be recycled or reused (in crafts). If it is thrown away, it will remain in landfills, because it is not biodegradable.

Granny squares are a great way to reuse plastic grocery bags. You can cut plastic grocery bags into strips and use them to crochet. Because granny squares are based off a center ring, they do not stretch out of shape like some other types of crochet would. Because granny squares are so sturdy and difficult to stretch out of shape, they are a great way to crochet these recycled plastic bags into reusable shopping bags that will be very durable. Granny squares can also be put together to make outdoor rugs and totes.

You make all your squares according to the pattern and colors, and then you stitch them all together and they come out as a blanket with a picture of tinkerbell, or other character. HELP!

I have a bunch of squares my grandmother made before she passed. She gave them to me because she didn't know how to join them. Thanks for the details on how to put them together, now I need to go find them!

Johanna Eisler on January 23, 2012:

I remember as a young bride, an elderly friend taught me to make granny squares. I was instantly "hooked." (Pardon the pun!) I haven't made them for years, but you've put the idea back into my head!

Congratulations on making the front page!

curious0927 on January 23, 2012:

Awesome! My daughter is learning to crochet and we talked about Granny Squares, she is doing so well with creating her own designs already, I told her "you are too advanced for Granny Squares"..Now that we saw this page together, we are ready to Granny Square. Great ideas for them! Liked and Blessed!

@pianolessongirl: Pianolessongirl: Yes, I've been considering that myself. I was thinking of using black or antique white to join the squares together.

pianolessongirl on December 06, 2011:

I've done random Granny Squares, and then put all the different colors together to create a colorful, random quilt. I think those are my favorite ones.....they always turn out one-of-a-kind. Thanks for this great lens!

I followed this pattern almost a year ago when I was first learning to crochet. Now I can crochet anything... afghans, amigurumi, hats, scraves, slippers, etc. .This pattern really helped start my love for crochet. Thanks and God bless you for taking the time to post this. For everyone who is new at it...don't give up! It was like a foreign language to me when I first began. Now a year later I can crochet almost any pattern I pick up. And it all started with this granny square. Good luck everyone!

I remember making this in school, i made it with one of those multi-colored pink and white crochet thread. It really is great for beginners since it was the first pattern I ever successfully and easily completed.

Probably the most primary of crochet stitches embrace the chain stitch, the slip sew, the double crochet stitch and the treble stitch. It is important to be confident and successful about forming these stitches, as the vast majority of crochet patterns embody all of them.

Ann from Yorkshire, England on August 12, 2011:

great lens - angel blessed and featured on my road trip to crafts lens.

franstan lm on August 04, 2011:

Excellent instructions for the beginner in crochet

hsschulte (author) on August 02, 2011:

@blessedmomto7: Blessedmombygrace, slip stitching is something that you do to get the crochet hook in position above the empty holes in the corners. It doesn't make any noticeable stitches in the granny square, it is just a method of getting the hook moved to the right location to begin crocheting. Does this help? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfPjNCloRys

hsschulte (author) on August 02, 2011:

@anonymous: Yes, the color coding helped me immensely when I was getting started.

hsschulte (author) on August 02, 2011:

@Holley Web: Hook size varies so much with yarn weight. I think you can truly use any hook that is big enough to "hook" the yarn, it will just change the gauge a bit.

hsschulte (author) on August 02, 2011:

@sukkran trichy: Thank you! That means so much to me!

hsschulte (author) on August 02, 2011:

@Scarlettohairy: Lol Scarlett. I love the squares... and grandmas! Did you check out the cup, "I might be a granny, but I'm no square!"

Thanks for the detailed instructions on crocheting granny squares. Since I'm a granny X 3, I really should learn how to do this.

blessedmomto7 on July 19, 2011:

I get lost at step 4. I don't understand how to slip stitch in the top of the "next 3 double crochet stitches." I have looked at youtube, searched google, read yours and other lenses about granny squares and I can't seem to figure it out. Oh well, it was a nice thought. Maybe some day I will figure it out. Great lens if only I wasn't so directionally challenged. Sigh.
