My first crocheting experience was helping my mother make a very multicolored blanket of Granny Squares and it really is a wonderful way to start. This tutorial is yet another great one on a crochet basic that helps us in whatever we make from here onwards. I used to be quite daunted by complicated crochet patterns untilI realized that they are all just variations on the same basic theme. Yes, some do look more difficult than others but if you have learnt the basics you will be able to do the most difficult looking ones.

If youve never worked a basic Granny Square, this is a great place to start. I can see where the written directions might be a little intimidating for a rank beginner, but the video takes you through each step with plenty of explanation between. I have found that the versatile Granny is a wonderful project for my beginners as the squares work up so quickly plus they have an actual finished product at the end.

I love crochet granny square blankets! They are my favorite go-to baby shower gift because they're so quick to work up!
