Converting a Square to a Granny

February 3, 2017 1 comment

I crochet this beautiful Margaret Square. I wanted to continue and convert it over to a granny stitch square to create a baby blanket. So here is my mini tutorial on how I converted this crochet square over to a granny stitch blanket.

Using a H (5 mm) crochet hook I slipped stitch over to the corner space and chained 3. Worked 2 more double crochet (DC) in corner and then chained 2, work 3 more DC in same corner space. Then skip 2 stitches and work 3 DC in next stitch, repeat this to next corner and work 3 DC, chain 2, and 3 DC all in corner space. Repeat around and end the row with a slip stitch into the top of the beginning chain 3.

The result is now an 8 inches square which you can just continue working in the granny stitch method. To begin each new row, just slip stitch over to the corner space and chain 3. Then work 2 more DC in corner, chain 2, and 3 more DC in corner space. After that you simply need to work 3 DC in
