Granny Squares Tutorial

Hi! 🙂

1

I promised to make a tutorial on GSQ, and here it is. – I decided to post pictures instead of a video, because I believe, it’s easier to learn from pictures than from fast video tuts.

Ok, let’s start.

First, you need to do a slipknot. If you don’t know how or (like me ^^) don’t like it, just do a regular knot. It works well. 😀

IMG_0386

Then, do 4 singlecrochets!

IMG_0389

Chain last and first SC together:

IMG_0390

IMG_0391

You will then get a ring:

IMG_0392

If you want, just make the ring wider with your finger. 🙂

IMG_0393

IMG_0394

Chain 2. (make 2 SC)

IMG_0395

Then, do 3 double-crochets into your ring:

IMG_0398

(Yarn over the hook,

IMG_0399

into the ring

IMG_0400

again yarn over the hook

IMG_0401

through the ring. Now, you have 3 chains on your hook!

IMG_0402

Now pull the yarn through 2, and then again

IMG_0405

through the last remaining 2 loops.

Repeat three times.

IMG_0406

Then, do 2 singlecrochets! (It’s important, so don’t forget!)

IMG_0409

Then again, 3 doublecrochets!

IMG_0410

And 2 singlecrochets. Then again 3 DC and 2 SC. And then, 2 (!!!!!!!!!!!!) doublecrochets.

IMG_0413

After you have done 2 doublecrochets, add your loop to the second chain of the first 2 singlecrochets of this round you had done.

IMG_0415

You might want to do a colourchange, but if you are a beginner, just use one colour, it’s easier!

IMG_0418

If you do a colourchange, chain 2 double-yarned SC:

IMG_0421

Then, chain 2 SC.

IMG_0423

If you use one colour, chain 4 at once.

IMG_0424

Again, 3 doublecrochets into the hole. (there will be a hole from the last round)

IMG_0425

IMG_0426

IMG_0427

After you have done 3 DCs, do 2 singlecrochets again.

Then, 3 doublecrochets into the next „hole“ followed by 2 singlecrochets. And now, ATTENTION (!) – remember you want your piece to become a SQUARE so you need to add the next 3 doublecrochets into the SAME hole.

IMG_0428

This is what it looks like then.

IMG_0429

2 Singlecrochets follow. 🙂

IMG_0431

And now you  know, what follows 😉 3 DC in the next „hole“, then 2 SC and 3 DC into the same hole followed by 2 SC….

IMG_0432

Add 2 DC to the last hole and then chain into the second loop from your first stitch like you’ve done on the last round.

IMG_0433

Have you been afraid to never make it to a „square“ shape?! 😀 HA, now you see, it works!

IMG_0435

You might now wanna do a colourchange (again) or use the same colour you’ve used before and chain 4, then add 3 DC, 2 SC…. and again and again. 🙂 It could go on like foreveeeeeeer! But keep in mind that you only need to do 3 DC and 2 SC twice on the edges 😉

I hope, this could help you out, I tried to keep it as easy as possible. Oh, and I noticed how much I love the colours I used ❤ So pretty.

If you succeed, SHOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!

Loves,

Katja

    I think your tutorial has been a success! Love the pink and green, what yarn is it?

  4. Katja schreibt:

    🙂 it’s simple 1 euro-yarn from a crafts-store. i don’t even think it has a special name. 🙂 but i fell in love with the colours, so i had to have it 😀

    thank you so much!
    i’ve just made my first of sooo many to come, i’m so excited!

    this is such a great tutorial and awesome pattern! 😉

    can you believe that yesterday i spent my entire afternoon watching videos, reading patterns and couldn’t make it?

    the point is, besides great explanations, what makes it different is the fact that on the first hole you make four „strings“ (instead of three) and in the end you add 2 to make it multiple of three (i’m not sure if i was clear). and that was the problem i was going through.

    congratulations!
