Classic Granny Square How-to

First things first: how do you make a granny square?

I'm so glad you asked! 

 

Make a foundation chain: Chain 1, join with a slip stitch (I tend to use the a magic ring instead - video tutorial is in the works)

Round 1: Ch 5, (3 DC into ring, ch2) x3, 2DC into ring, slst into 3rd chain of first ch5

 

Slst to corner and begin Round 2
