How to crochet a solid granny square.

Materials:

LoveCrafts
  • Yarn (I used Paintbox Aran for this tutorial)
  • Hook (I used a 5 mm hook)
  • Scissors
  • Darning needle

Stitches & Terms Used:

  • ch- chain
  • sl st- slip stitch
  • sp- space
  • dc- double crochet

Notes:

  • You can use any type of yarn and corresponding hook to make the granny square. What you’re making is what will determine the materials you use. Similarly, the gauge and size of the crochet square will depend on what you’re making and what material and hook size you use.
  • Since I want a pronounced hole in the middle of my crochet granny square, I begin with a ch 4, joining to first ch to form a ring. You can use less chains if you want a less pronounced hole or alternatively start also use a magic circle. You can use this tutorial to learn how to work and secure the magic circle.
  • The ch 3 at the beginning of each round counts as 1 dc
