How to Crochet the Classic Single Colour Granny Square

A single colour Granny Square is such a popular starting point, when learning to crochet that I decided that it has to have its own dedicated video tutorial and pattern. So I've made a Right and Left handed version of the video tutorial, and there are no abbreviations in the accompanying free PDF crochet pattern. So you'll find it's all very clear to watch and straightforward to read.

If you would like a copy of the pattern you will find it on my main website on the Crochet Patterns page, or simply download it HERE In the video I take you step-by-step, from making that first slipknot, through making a 3 rounds of a Granny Square, which will have set the pattern in place. Traditionally a Granny Square is usually between 3 and 6 rounds, but you can keep going with it as a single motif and make projects up to any size, even up to a bedspread and beyond!

Keep watching until the end though, as I'll share a couple of tips for changing colour and to a new ball of yarn part way around the round.

For this project I've used a 4mm crochet hook and Stylecraft Special DK yarn, but you could equally use a 5mm hook with some (UK) Aran weight yarn, or a 6mm hook with (UK) weight chunky yarn. So for now, welcome to the world of crochet and I hope you enjoy making your Single Colour Granny Square.

Happy crocheting and all the best
