One colour granny square

Hello!

This is what got me into crocheting a few years ago when I found a description for a square at one of my local craft shops. I guess I must have made hundreds since.

Once you get the hang of it, you can make the squares as large as you like. And in different colours too!

I have written this description for squares of five rounds. But you can do less if you want smaller ones.

First a one coloured square.

Happy crocheting.
