Summer Granny Square

I love this squares. They are beautiful, easy to make and you can make a lot of things with them.

Also love that you can join them as you go. So you don’t have to grab all your squares and try to remember what was that thing that you wanted to do with them.

Hope you will enjoy this pattern and you will try it.

First let’s see the chart:

See, only 4 rows and your summer granny square is done.

  • Ch – chain
  • Sc – single crochet
  • Dc – double crochet
  • dc2tog – 2 dc cluster
  • dc3tog – 3 dc cluster
  • dc 4 tog – 4 dc cluster
  • St(s) – stitch(es)

Special stitches:


A group of 2, 3 or 4 dc worked together.

Yarn over, insert the hook into the 1st st, yarn over pull out a loop, yarn over, pull the yarn trough the first 2 loops. Repeat 2, 3 or 4 times as pattern requires. Yarn over and pull the yarn trough all loops on your hook.

Now that we know all these, let’s start.

    I love these summer granny squares and look forward to trying them. I like to join them afterwards so I don’t have to carry them all around. Is there a way to join them after they’re all completed?

  2. Sure wish you had included joining instructions for the summer granny square. I don’t watch videos since i’m in a rural area with only a mobile hotspot (weak signals).
