Here's what Carina had to say about her tutorial: As promised, here is the granny square tutorial! I am sorry it's taken me a little while to get it to you, but here it is at last! The best thing about the granny square is that you don't have to fiddle with trying to get the hook into stitches (only a tiny little bit, anyway), it is all crocheting into chain spaces. Which makes it very quick to do once you get the hang of it.
This is of course just one method of doing it - there are plenty others to be found on the interwebs and in books (and maybe from your actual granny?!). But it's the method that works for me. I hope the explanation makes sense. If not, please leave a comment or email me and I'll try to make fix it.
Here's what Carina had to say about her tutorial: Just a warning before we get started with the tutorial, there's LOTS of pictures and I may go into too much detail, but that's just what I do. ;-) Anyway, if there aren't enough details or if my description is confusing, please don't hesitate to email me or leave a comment.
There are loads of methods of joining (granny) squares, my method is just one, and may not even be the best. But I like this one because once you get it -and to be honest, there isn't that much to get!- you can do it without much thinking. And I also like how the joining 'seam' looks almost seamless. Especially if you use the same colour as the final round in each square.
