Photo Tutorial – Crochet Pattern: Solid Granny Square!

Thanks for visiting my page! Here is a written tutorial with photos on my free crochet pattern: Solid Granny Square!

First, with any project you’ll need a crochet hook and yarn. Any yarn or hook will do for learning how to make this square.

There are several ways to start this square. You can use the Magic Ring/Circle/Loop, I have a tutorial here! The Chain 4 method, I have a tutorial here! Or the Slip Stitch Method, I have a tutorial here!

For this pattern you'll need to know how to make Chains (CH), I have a tutorial here! How to make a Slip Stitch (SL ST), I have a tutorial here! And how to make Double Crochet Stitches (DC), I have a tutorial here!

I will be using the Chain (CH) 4 method for my example square. Make 4 CHs with your hook. You'll be working into the 1st CH you made.

You'll start your first granny block of 3 DC. 3 CHs of your initial CH 4 count as 1 DC. Throughout this pattern, any CH 3 will count as 1 DC. So for each side of this first row you will need 3 DC. In my example picture I have made 3 DC for my side and 2 CHs for my corner space. This first row will contain 3 DC for each side and CH 2 for each corner.

My above picture shows the 3 DC first made + the CH 2 for a corner space. You would start repeating this for the first row.

Picture above shows the first row completed

Starting the 2nd row with the same color, CH 3. Then work 1 DC into the next ST. (Shown Above)

You would then work 2 DC into the next open corner space. (Shown Above)

Then you would make 2 CHs at that corner space. (Shown Above)

Then in that same corner space work 2 more DC STs. So each corner you come to throughout the whole pattern would be: 2DC, CH 2, 2 DC all in the same space.

When you get to any side you will work 1 DC into each ST across until you meet a corner space. You would then repeat the corner space pattern I have mentioned above. You would repeat this pattern for your entire 2nd row until you meet the 3 CHs you originally made. You would then SL ST into the top of those CHs to complete the row.

You would repeat the pattern in row 2 for your desired square length.

I did want to also mention how I would change colors for any rows in this pattern. You would make a Slip Knot (tutorial here!) with your new color, then attach that color anywhere into the 2nd row to begin. In the picture above I picked a DC ST to begin mine. I chained 3, that counts as 1 DC, then I started making DCs in each ST because I started on a side. You would then start repeating the pattern from there.

In the picture above I am showing how you could start in a corner space if you wanted to. Attach with a Slip Knot again, CH 3 that counts as 1 DC, then make 1 more DC into that space, CH 2, then 2 more DC to make that whole corner space like in the pattern above. You would then continue from there on the side making 1 DC in each ST.

This is what the Solid Granny Square should look like when completed!
