Traditional Granny Square

This funky colour granny square blanket is made using poundstretcher chunky yarn.

Written tutorial for a traditional granny square

For the picture round guides at the bottom of this tutorial I have used Caron simply soft yarn and a 6mm hook

I have followed the method with a ch3 in each corner and a ch1 between each block. Alternative methods include; using a ch2 in each corner with no chains between each block, this will give you slightly smaller holes. Also using a ch1 in each corner with no chains between blocks again giving slightly smaller holes in the corners.

  • I have written this tutorial using US terms
