I first learned how to crochet at the young age of nine when my mum taught me how to make a simple granny square, and it was love at first sight.
Granny squares are such an iconic part of crochet history, as that is how grandmothers and mothers taught daughters, who became mothers themselves whom in turn also taught their own daughters... But since I know so many of you are crochet newbies and might not have a clue about how to crochet a granny square, I decided to create this little tutorial!
However, if you've crocheted multiple granny squares and want a bit of a challenge, maybe give my water lily afghan square a go!
