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 for 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 left over stashed linen yarns to make these solid granny squares. I used the granny square as drinks coasters but the squares can be make 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, 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 a bigger and multiple diagonal crosses.
Hope you find this useful and have a pleasant crochet journey to make up something you have in mind.
