How to crochet the Granny Square



I recently made a kid's top with a Granny Square. I received a lot of interest in a tutorial for how I make my granny stitches. I used a smaller hook to make the stitches tighter since it was a top. It was so cute!


So here is the written pattern for how I make my granny squares and I've also included a video tutorial for the visual learners!

Supplies:

Worsted Weight Yarn

6mm Crochet hook or appropriate size for your yarn

Scissors




Abbreviations:

ch - chain

sl st - slip stitch

sp - space

st(s) - stitch(es)

dc - double crochet

Pattern Notes: The ch3 counts as a double crochet stitch. Double Crochet Clusters refers to the 3 double crochet set.


Pattern:

Round 1: Start with a magic ring, ch3, 2dc into the magic ring, *ch1, 3dc into ring, Repeat from * 2 more times. Sl st to the beginning ch3. sl st 2 sts and 1 sl st into ch1 space.









Round 2: ch3, 2dc, ch1, 3dc into the same ch1 sp, *3dc, ch1, 3dc into the next ch1 sp. Repeat from * 2 more times. Sl st to the beginning ch3. sl st 2 sts and 1 sl st into ch1 space.




Round 3: ch3, 2dc, ch1, 3dc into the same ch1 sp, 3dc into the sp between 2 dc clusters (from previous round) *3dc, ch1, 3dc into the next ch1 sp, 3dc into the sp between 2 dc clusters. Repeat from * 2 more times. Sl st to the beginning ch3. sl st 2 sts and 1 sl st into ch1 space.



Round 4: ch3, 2dc, ch1, 3dc into the same ch1 sp, 3dc into each sp between 2 dc clusters across *3dc, ch1, 3dc into the next ch1 sp, 3dc into each sp between 2 dc clusters across. Repeat from * 2 more times. Sl st to the beginning ch3. sl st 2 sts and 1 sl st into ch1 space.



Repeat Round 4 until you are happy with the size of your square!.

Just remember:

Start in the ch1 space.

Each corner is (3dc, ch1, 3dc).

3dc cluster across the sides of the square in-between the previous 2 clusters.
