One Color Granny Square Crochet Tutorial

Thank you so much for sharing!

Hey Everyone!  Today I wanted to share with you the traditional one color granny square tutorial with you!  This method is slightly different than the type of granny square that changes colors and when I asked my Facebook live audience if it would be helpful, the answer was a major… yes!

Granny squares are one of the most iconic and popular projects in the crochet world. My favorite thing about granny squares is that since you make 1 at a time, they can be very fun and satisfying. I also love that you can use some modern colors or cool yarn to make this nostalgic and familiar design modern.
