Stressful Granny Squares.

October 11, 2007

Okay, so I decided that I will eventually make an afghan made of all different sized and colored granny squares. Here is my dilemma: I suck a granny squares. Seriously. I mean, generally, they turn out okay at the end, but the center DC’s are never as defined as I like. I don’t know if I am just a tight crocheter (a great possibility) or what, but I am going berserk. Granted, it might not be my crocheting skills at all, but the “cheap” (crafting on a budget sucks) yarn I decided to use; nevertheless, it is frustrating me.

Just thought I would share and beg for tips on making good granny squares.

I will commence begging now: Please help me!!

Thanks all.

    I’ve read that turning the granny square at each round makes the sections line up well.
    Make sure that you have ch-2 spaces in the corners and ch-1 spaces in the round. Too many chains can make it look loose and what I would consider ‘less defined’.
    I like to magic ring the center, also.
    Cheap yarn isn’t as nice to work with but should be fine in a granny square.
