To print a new copy
made this afghan using granny squares made with four rows each.
I used alot of the odd colors of yarn I had in my yarn stash.
Not sure exactly how many ounces that ended up being.
I joined the squares by working a single crochet on one square, then
chaining 2 and working a single crochet in the corresponding stitch
on the opposite square.
I joined squares into strips first and then joined the strips together.
To finish, I added a simple single crochet edging around the entire afghan.
This afghan was 9 squares wide and 12 squares long.
The following pattern is my original design. There are many variations of granny squares and since the posting of this page
I've been told that my pattern resembles one handed down by a viewer's grandmother. The granny square I first learned to make didn't have the ch-1 spaces in it and I added them to the pattern to make it easier for crocheters to figure out where to place the stitches. Little did I know someone had done this before me.
Please only copy or print this pattern for your personal use.
Hook: Size I (I use Boye brand)
Yarn: Any 4ply worsted weight yarn. (I used Red Heart for the square in the photo)
Amount needed depends on how many squares needed for your project.
Stitches used: ch, sl st, dc.
Size: You can make these squares as large as you like. I have done an entire afghan as one giant granny square.
RND 1: Chain 4, (work all of the following sts in the 4th ch from the hk)
2 dc, * ch 1, 3 dc, repeat from * twice more, ch 1. Join with sl st in top of beg ch 4.
Ch 3, turn the piece over.
RND 2: (2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next ch 1 sp.* (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next ch 1 sp. Repeat from * twice more. Join with sl st in top of beg ch 3. Ch 3, turn the square over.
RND 3: 2 dc in next open space on the side of the square. (3 dc ch 2, 3 dc) in the next open space on the corner of the square. * 3 dc in next side space. (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next corner space. Repeat from * twice more. Join with sl st in top of beg ch 3. Ch 3, turn the square over.
FOR ANY ADDITIONAL ROWS:
Work 3 dc in each open space on the side of the square and work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in each corner space.
To begin a new row, always ch 3 and turn the square over.
To end each row, do a sl st in the top of the beg ch 3.
TO FINISH OFF: After doing the sl st to join the last row, ch 1 and pull the yarn all the way through the loop.
WEAVE IN ALL YARN ENDS.
