Here’s a question (or two) for all you crocheters out there. When you make a granny square, do you do zero chains or a chain one in between each cluster? And in the corners, one chain or two?
Normally I do one chain in the corners and none in between each cluster of double crochet (treble UK). But I had this book from the library, Visual Quick Tips Crochet, which said to do a chain in between clusters and two in the corners.
The verdict is: I prefer my old method. This square is a little skewed (which happened with my last largish squares too – not sure why) but when I hold it up it is very wavy and needs some stern blocking.
If anyone has any helpful tips for making perfect squares, I’d love to hear from you in the comments.
This square is destined to become a bag. Thought I’d try folding it in half, seaming up the ends, and gathering in the top with some extra rounds of dcs. Not sure how I’m going to do the handle yet.
