So i’ve recently restarted my youtube channel, not that there was much of it before, and will be dedicating it to crochet videos and possibly some lifestyle videos!
Today, i uploaded a video where i speak through a tutorial for crocheting a solid granny square and thought that i would type the pattern up to go along with it here to make things easier for you! I recently started crochet, and i’d love to share my new found passion with others, and give them an easy way to start off!
Heres a photo of the final squares (ignore the time and date in the bottom right hand corner, still figuring out the new camera!):
And here we go:
Hook and Yarn:
5mm Crochet Hook
WI Premium Acrylic Yarn from HobbyCraftUK
This pattern is written in US terminology. And the conversion chart below, taken from Simply Crochet, should help you out with abbreviations.
These are the abreviations i will be using throughout:
ss (slip stich): insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch, then through the loop on your hook. Multple of these create a chain.
dc (double crochet): yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (three loops on hook), yarn over and pull through two loops on hook (two loops left on hook), yarn over and pull through remaining two loops
sl knot (slip knot)
