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.

Abbreviations used in this pattern

  • 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.

Round 1

Make a magic ring and ch 3, 3 dc, ch 3, [4 dc, ch 3] – repeat the [ ] 3 times, to the end of the row. Sl st with the 3rd st of the starting ch. Pull the yarn to close the ring.

[ dc4tog, ch 3, (dc 2 tog, ch 3, dc 2 tog, ch 3) – corner] – repeat 2 more times to the end of the round. Sl st with the 3rd st of the starting ch.

Round 3

  • [dc2tog, ch 3] – repeat 3 more times (4 dc2tog in total)

[1 sc in the next st, ch 3, [dc2 tog, ch 3] 4 times] repeat 2 more times to the end of the round. Sl st with the ch 1 from beginning.

Round 4

Ch 1, 1 sc in the same st. Ch 5, 1 sc in the next 3 ch space, ch 5.

Corner: 1 sc in the next ch 3 space, ch 5, 1 sc in the next space, ch 7, 1 sc in the same space, ch 5, 1 sc in the next space.
