Making the Granny Squares

 

To Start

ch 4 and sl st in beg st.

 

Round 1

Ch 3, work two more dc’s inside the ring, *(ch 2, then work 3 more dc’s into the ring)* repeat this 2 more times. After the last set of 3 dc’s, only ch 1 instead of 2 and sl st into top of beginning ch 3. This sl st counts as second chain. This is why you only chained one at end or row. You should have you 4 spaces.

 

Round 2

Ch 3, work two more dc’s into this corner space. (ch 2 and working in the next corner space put DC 3, ch 2, DC 3 all worked in the same space. ) repeat 2 more times, which brings you up to your beginning corner. DC into this last space ch 1 and sl st into beginning ch 3.

 

Round 3

Ch 3, work two more dc’s into this corner space. (Ch 1 and dc 3 into middle space, ch 1 and working in next corner DC 3. ch 2. DC 3. ) repeat 2 more times, which brings you up to your beginning corner. DC into this last space ch 1 and sl st into beginning ch 3.

 

Round 4

Round 4 and every round after wards will be done exactly like round three, every round you will be increasing how many center spaces you will have between each corner space. Just keep working them like you did in round three.

About the Author:

Hi I'm Candy from Meladora's Creations and I design crochet patterns and film them for my YouTube channel. I want to start by saying, I am by no means a professional teacher. I figure things out as I go along and I love playing with yarn! This is how I have discovered new crochet stitches. I am a mother of two and I live in Israel presently, but I was born and raised in Oklahoma. I met a man on an online game and became friends and through time we fell in love and I came out here to Israel to be together. From lack of knowing how to speak Hebrew, I had to find a way to help take care of our two kids, so after sharing my crochet projects online and being asked to do a tutorial on one of them, I finally broke down and tried it.
