Easy Begginner’s Granny Square Crochet Pattern

This pattern will show you, step by step, how to make a basic granny square. It is the most famous and most simple granny square that we all know and love.

Maybe you grew up with the granny square as a favorite afghan from grandma or mom and never even knew it until now!

Now you can create a granny square of your own. You can make it as small (for instance a dishcloth) or as big (for instance a large afghan) as you like!

I love this simple, yet elegant pattern. I’ve made countless dischcloths out of this pattern with cotton yarn. I’ve made countless afghans out of this pattern as well with wool or acrylic yarn. It is really a universal pattern. Feel free to play with colors as well! :)
