Solid Granny Square Crochet Pattern

Remember the Flat Slip Stitch Granny Join tutorial I did a while ago? This is the crochet pattern of the Solid Granny Square I used to demonstrate FSS Granny Join in the tutorial. I have received some feedback requesting the crochet pattern on this solid granny square, I heard you and here it is 🙂

My version of solid granny square is a little different from the traditional solid granny square. This solid granny square starts from a double crochet circle and it has a treble crochet with chain stitches at the corners. You will need to know how to make the basic stitches like chain (ch), double crochet (dc), treble crochet (tr) and slip sticth (sl) in order to crochet this solid granny square.

Simply adapt the crochet pattern by adding colors to the square to create a color band, or just leave it in a single color. I used some leftover stashed linen yarns to make these solid granny squares. I used the granny square as drinks coasters but the squares can be made into other things upon joining up, the most popular items will be the granny square blanket, top garment, bags, table runners, etc. I have gathered 12 ways to join up the granny squares for you to choose from, you may read it here.

This solid granny square has an obvious diagonal cross on the block which was formed by the chain stitches at the corners. Once you have the squares joining up into a larger project, the diagonal lines array into bigger and multiple diagonal crosses.

Hope you find this useful and have a pleasant crochet journey to make up something you have in mind.

Pattern note: If you wish to join up the squares and make the project into a bigger piece, I have gathered 12 ways to join up the granny squares for you to choose from, you may read it here.

Gather the yarns and crochet hook. Stashed yarns that leftover from previous projects could be a good choice for a smaller project. For this instant, I make the solid granny squares into drink coasters.

 
crochet-granny-square-2

Slip knot and chain 4 sts to begin the square.

 
crochet-granny-square-3

Double Crochet 11 on the 4th ch from the hook. slst to the ch at the beginning of the round.

 
crochet-granny-square-4

Chain 5 stitches to begin the second round.

 
crochet-granny-square-5

Treble Crochet into the same st at the beginning of the round, this is one of the corners of 4 of the square.

 
crochet-granny-square-6

Double Crochet twice in each st for the next 2 sts. This means you have 4 double crochet before making the next corner.

 
crochet-granny-square-7

Crochet the corner stitches to the next sts, that is, Treble Crochet, Chain twice and Treble Crochet.

 
crochet-granny-square-8

Repeat the dc stitches and corner stitches until you have reached the beginning of the round, that means you have all 4 corners done. Slip stitch to the chain space at the beginning of the round.

 
crochet-granny-square-9

Begin round 3 with 5 chain stitches, follow by treble stitch to the same chain space. Double Crochet twice on the next stitch (which is the treble stitch of previous round), go on with Double Crochet to each stitch for the next 4 stitches, Double Crochet twice to the next stitch. Make the treble-2chains-treble corner stitches to the chain space of the previous round.

 
crochet-granny-square-10

Repeat the Double Crochet and Treble Corner stitches until you have reached the beginning of the round, Slip stitch to the chain space at the beginning of the round.

 
crochet-granny-square-11

By now you should be able to get the idea on how the pattern propagates. In summary, as you start the next round, always perform the Treble corner stitches at the chain space. Double Crochet twice to the treble stitch on the previous round, Double Crochet in each stitch (you have 8 stitches here) until you reach the Treble Stitch of the next corner of previous round, Double Crochet twice again on the Treble stitch. Follow by the Treble corner stitches and so on.

 
crochet-granny-square-12

Repeat the same as the above but instead of 8 single Double Crochet stitches in between the corners and the Double Crochet twice stitches, you will need to make 12 stitches.

 

You may change the yarn to other colors in the pattern to create a spectrum of colored squares.
