How to Make a Granny Squarecomments (46) March 3rd, 2015
Now it's time to start the third round. Again, you can join your new yarn anywhere. Here, I joined it in one of the ch-1 spaces before a corner.
Ch 3 (counts as dc) and make 2 dc in the ch-1 sp. Ch 1, then (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in the ch-2 space/corner. Ch 1. *3 dc in ch-1 space, ch 1, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in corner. Ch 1. Repeat from * around, join to the 3rd stitch of round.
Subsequent rounds are easy to make if you remember this simple formula:
In all ch-1 spaces: 3 dc, then ch 1.
In all ch-2 spaces/corners: (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc), then ch 1.
With each round, you'll be adding an extra shell on each side (and by adding the shell, you'll be creating the space for the extra shell on the subsequent round).
You could make your granny as small or large as you want, and by playing with yarn sizes, there are even more possibilities. So get grannying!
