How to Crochet a Classic Granny Square: Granny Square Pattern

Even if you are brand new to crochet, you are probably familiar with the granny square. Granny squares have been around for ages and seem to resurge in popularity over and over again. This is probably because they are quick, easy, and oh, so versatile. They can be pieced together to make just about anything … afghans, purses, placemats, sweaters, scarves … the list is endless. They are also a great way to use up your yarn scraps.
