How To Crochet The Classic Granny Square

"Learning how to crochet the classic granny square is one of the first patterns that a beginner at crochet often learns how to make. The granny square is a design that can be used to create all kinds of fun projects. Easy-to-Learn Crochet Pattern The basic granny square is a classic that is simply perfect for a beginner for many reasons. One is that it helps a new crocheter read a crochet pattern while making something that is quick to make. Another reason is that the pattern is repetitive. Once you get beyond round three, the pattern is a repeat of rounds two and three."
