As promised, here is my free Granny Square Pattern! I actually took these pictures and wrote this one myself! If you have any questions feel free to ask them in the comments section!
Crochet Hook size “G”, or size needed to obtain gauge
Worsted weight yarn, any color
5 rows = 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 inches
sl st = slip stitch
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
beg = beginning
sp = space
dc shell = 3dc
Foundation Row: ch 5; sl st in 1st ch to form ring.
Row 1: ch3, 2dc in ring, ch2; * 3dc in ring, ch 2*; Repeat from * to * 2 more times. Sl st in top of beg ch.
Row 2: ch3, 2dc in same sp; * 3dc in next ch2 sp, ch2, 3dc in same sp*; Repeat from * to * 2 more times, 3dc in last sp, ch2; sl st in top of beg ch.
Row 3: ch3, 2dc in same sp; * 3dc in next sp; 3dc in next ch2 sp, ch2, 3dc in same sp*; Repeat from * to * 2 more times; 3dc in next sp; 3dc in last sp, ch2; sl st in top of beg ch.
Rows 4 & 5: Repeat pattern by making dc shell in each sp, remembering to dc shell twice in corners with ch2 between.
To Finish: Fasten off yarn, weave in all ends.
To Alternate/add colors: Fasten off at the end of each row and attach new color in the corner of the previous row, beginning with ch 3.
Have fun with this pattern...it's a great way to use up leftover yarn that you can't use for anything else...the result is always so fun! Good luck!
(I will be sending a shipment of granny squares to Australia at the end of February, for the Crochet A Rainbow project...if you are interested in sending squares to me to include them in my shipment please send me an email!)
