Starting your square
The start of your square is like any other granny square. In fact, the first two rounds are worked in a single color – pink. I like my granny squares to be nice and compact, so I don’t have any chains between the tr clusters and only 1ch at the corners. Feel free to add 1 ch between the clusters and 2 to 3 chs at the corners if that is your preference.
If you’re confident making granny squares and changing color, use the guide in the square below. Otherwise, scroll down for step-by-step instructions.
