How to Crochet a Granny Square

How to crochet a granny square

This week, I’m still in the midst of cleaning up all my old projects I’ve been working on – kind of clearing the deck so I can get started fresh for the new year.

I have recently finished making a crochet granny square (a giant granny square), and so on today’s Taking Back Friday episode, I want to show you the basic step-by-step of how to crochet a granny square! If you’re interested in learning more about crochet, I really encourage you to also check out the Crochet Basics course over at the School of SweetGeorgia. Charlotte Lee has put together a comprehensive class including everything you know to get started. There you can learn about all the intricacies of how to tension your yarn, how to make a chain stitch, differences between crochet hooks and more!

I would love to see your own crochet projects! The best way to do so is to tag us on your Instagram photos with @sweetgeorgia – then we can see what you’re working on, what kind of things you’re crocheting or what you might make with your granny square!


  • what I’m wearing in today’s video: I’m wearing the Zweig design by Caitlin Hunter, knit in Mohair Silk Sock in Lollipop and Bubble Wand.
  • what I mention in today’s video: Here are links to items shown in today’s vlog…
    • The giant crochet granny square project I’m making is Rove Handmade’s Granny Cocoon Shrug. I used 4 skeins of Mohair Silk DK yarn in Evening.
    • The smaller granny square sample was crocheted using Mohair Silk DK in Strawberry Tea. The hook I am using is a 6/0 Japanese crochet hook which I got from the dollar store.
