How to Crochet a Granny Square {Beginner's Tutorial}

how to crochet a granny square

My love for granny squares knows no bounds.

Was that a weird way to start this post? I just think they are so satisfying to make, and who doesn't love a good granny square blanket? My first crochet project was a big old granny square blanket (shown above), which is still one of my favorite projects to date.

I thought that since I post a lot of crochet projects on here, some of you might be interested in learning how to do it yourself. So, I made a video tutorial, which actually ended up being way harder than I thought it would be because you have to make sure that your hands are in the shot and that you're in focus and that you're not going too fast and that you're saying the right words...the stress!

Anyway, I tried to make this tutorial as easy-to-follow as possible and I'm not sure if that was accomplished or not but I tried my best. You can check it out for yourself at the bottom of the post and let me know. Once you've been doing something for a long time, you forget what it felt like when you first started, you know?
