The Yarn That is Great For A Crochet Square

Just like me, I’m sure you have a ton of scrap yarn left over from past projects to use for this project!

I decided to use Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice because of the choice of colors and the durability of the yarn!

I usually use Vanna’s Choice because for me it’s because the yarn has to be able to handle and make it through the use of three kids!

    Hi Krista,
    I was very interested in several of the 9 Easy Granny Squares for Beginners you sent in your last news letter.
    However I am NOT able to print ANY of the patterns.
    Curious as to why?

    1. Hi Donna,

      The square patterns shown are only available right now on the blog to view and are not available as printable PDF’s at this time.

  2. Hi Krista,
    Is this US or UK terms? I have made a square and it is definitely smaller than 5″x5″.

  3. Hi Krista, I have looked at a lot of videos on crochet squares, and they usually count the first ch3 as the first double crochet of the next loop. I’ve been getting 1 additional stitch per round and I think this may be the reason. Can you verify if the pattern needs to be modified?

    1. Hi Mari,

      I know but I chose not to for my square. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for stopping by.

      Krista

  4. Hi. I’m a beginner. ๐Ÿ™‚ Please can you tell me where exactly is “You will always slip stitch into the first double crochet” ?
    Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi!,
      The first dc is the first dc you worked in that round. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope this helps. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Hi,

        Thank you for your response! ๐Ÿ™‚
        To be sure in which stitch must to make a slip stitch I uploaded an image http://s17.postimg.org/ggac13tjj/2016_02_08_23_13_04.jpg

        Hope you understand something from there. ๐Ÿ˜€ So to make a slip stitch I put in 4th chain or where exactly? I did 16 stitches (without to make a chain after double crochet at final, is that ok? because if I make a chain, it will be 17 stitches…) Or I’m understanding wrong about difference between stitch and chain…

        One more question:
        “chain 4, in 4th chain from hook ” – I understand that I must make 2 dc in 4th chain”
        “chain 3, in first stitch do 2 double crochets” – which is the first stitch? the 4th chain?

        Sorry for these things! ๐Ÿ™‚ But I really want to understand. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you so much!
