New Year Craft goal update :

January is almost over – how have your New Year goals are going. One of mine was to re learn a new craft/Hobby that I had not done in a while. And crocheting is one I haven’t done in ages. Let’s start with a basic granny square – something I learned to do as a teenagers :

Directions : These are just the basic but if you google Granny Squares you will find You Tube and patterns online.

Stitch Guide:

Chain (Ch) – Double crochet (DC) -slip stitch (SL)

Basic Pattern :

Make a slip knot ch 4, join in furthest ch from hook to form a ring. Center circle
Chain (ch) 2. Crochet 2 double crochet (dc) into the center of the ring, ch 1, *3 dc, ch 1* (repeat 2 more times). Connect to first dc (not top of the chain) with a slip stitch,

Round 2: Ch 2, turn. 2 dc into space below ch, ch 1, 3 dc into space. This will make your first of four corners. Below next chain (in the gap between the 3 dc clusters) crochet *3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc* (repeat 2 more times, for a total of four corners). Connect to the first dc with a sl st.

Round 3: Ch 2, turn. 2 dc into space below ch. In the corner space, 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc (for your first corner). *3 dc in the next space, in the corner 3 dc, ch 1, 3dc* repeat 2 more times. Connect to first dc with a sl st.

Round 4: Ch 2, turn. 2 dc into space below ch. In the corner space, 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc (for your first corner). *3 dc in the next 2 spaces, in the corner 3 dc, ch 1, 3dc* repeat 2 more times. 3 dc into the final space. Connect to first dc with a sl st.

You can make as may rows as you want and make the square solid color or each row connect another color of yarn to the square. Lisa
