Because my prior squares have been fairly ambitious, today I decided to get back to basics with a nice and simple solid (or closed) granny square. It’s a one-repeat square, which is always a nice thing!
I used a lilac Järbo Molly, with my standard 5.5mm hook.
For the beginning circle, choose your favourite method, whether a chain-4 slip stitched into a circle, a magic circle, or chain-4 where you crochet into the first circle.
Knowledge & Abbreviation
You need to be able to do chains (ch-x), double crochet stitches (dc), single crochet stitches (sc), double crochet clusters (dcxtog), and slip stitches (sl st). I use American terms.
- ch-x: chain X chains
- st: stitch
- dc: double crochet
- sl st: slip stitch
- ch sp: chain space
- beg: beginning
- rep: repeat
Round 1: ch-3, dc, ch-2, *3dc, ch-2* rep between ** 3 times, dc, sl st into top of beg ch-3
Round 2: sl st into next dc, sl st into ch-2 sp, [ch-3, dc, ch-2, 2d] into ch-2 sp, dc into each dc, *[2dc, ch-2, 2dc] into next ch-2 sp, dc into each dc*, rep between ** until end of round, sl st to top of beg ch-3
Repeat round 2 until the square is as big as you want it.
