Basic Granny Square Pattern used for CAL & Joining Instructions

Below is the pattern to follow for each 2″ granny square used in the CAL starting tomorrow! Keep in mind that these sqaures will require a small hook. I use an E for mine, and they come in just over 2″. I wanted them a bit bigger, as the blanket is for my husband. Just try out some different hook sizes until you find the one that works for you!

Ch 3 at begining of each round counts as first DC.

Round 1: Ch 4. DC 2 times in 4th st from hook. *Ch 3, DC 3 times in same st*. Repeat from * to * 2 more times. Ch 3. Join with sl st at top of Ch 3.

Round 2: Ch 3. DC in next 2 st. *[DC, Ch 3, DC] in Ch 3 space. DC in next 3 st*. Repeat from * to * 2 more times. DC, Ch 3, DC in last Ch 3 space. Join with sl st at top of Ch 3 and fasten off. Use tapestry needle to work in end.

Joining your Granny Squares

There are a couple different ways to join Granny Squares, but slip-stitchign them together is my favorite! I would have taken pictures and posted them here, but Attic24 did a much better job then I ever could have! Check out here blog here for great instructions and photo tutorials!
