This is one of my very own granny square. I choose the Puff Stitch and the Solomon or Lover’s Knot Stitch, these stitches are very easy to master and the classic Double Crochet Stitch, to frame the square.
Round 1: chain 3 count it as your first stitch, 2 dc separate by 2 ch and 3 dc makes your first corner ch 1 and repeat 3 dc separate by 2 ch and 3 dc for your second corner repeat two more times until you have 4 corners.
Round 2: ch 3 , 2 dc, 2 ch and 3 dc, 2 ch. 3 dc will make your first corner, ch 1 and repeat 3 more times to make your 4 corner. This is the heart of my granny squares, starting with the 3 round I am starting with the puff stitch. You can start with the puff stitch instead of the double crochet, it is your party and you can have it your way 🙂
Round 3: choose a different color yarn and make your puffs with 5 yarn over (yo)and separate by 2 ch to make your first corner, ch 5 and 1 puff in the lower space (which was your ch 1, in the second round), ch 5 and make your corner. Repeat this 3 more times to complete your round.
Round 4: with the same color yarn make 1 puff , ch 1, 1 puff for your first corner, ch 3 and make 2 puffs (these are smaller, yo 3 times instead of 5)and separate each puff with 3 ch, ch 3 and make your second corner, repeat 2 more times to complete the round.
Round 5: change color and make your first corner with 2 puffs separated by 2 ch, ch 6 and 1 puff of 5 yo in the 2 smaller puffs from round 4, repeat 3 more times to complete your round.
Round 6: with the same color from round 4 you make your corner: 1 puff with 5 yo, 2 ch, 1 puff, ch 8 and one single crochet (sc) in the middle of the ch 6 from round 5, ch 8 repeat the pattern until you reach the next corner, you will have 4 sets of 8 ch between each corner.
Round 7 : change color and make your corner like in round 6, and instead of 8 chains you are going to use the Solomon’s knot, there will be 5 spaces between corners.
Round 8: repeat round 7 with the same color. This round will have 6 spaces of Solomon’s knot between corners.
Round 9: change color and make corners with puff stitch or double crochet. I choose to use dc. between corners you have 5 sets of 4 dc.
