One Color Granny Square Crochet Tutorial

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.

Twice a month would be fine. Most of the pod casts I watch on YouTune are twice a month. Plus you are a very busy lady. Would like a suggestion as to what crochet pattern would be suitable for a chemo hat/cap?

2x/month and a name too would be awesome. Melanie I am so grateful for you and your videos! Because of you and your videos I've been teaching myself how to crochet, again, use your quilting tips/instructions, and make many projects. You're SO EASY TO LEARN FROM!! THANKYOU isn't enough!

Twice a month would be great for me. I am a knitter however years ago I did crochet and I have been wanting to get back to doing some crocheting so this is great! Thank you.
