Granny Square No 2 - Corner 2 Corner - For Foggy Dawn Sweater

In today's post, I will introduce to you my second granny square for "Foggy Dawn" sweater. This "corner to corner" granny square is unusual, and although as you crochet this square it may seem that it is a diamond - but proper stretching by hand or blocking will help you shape it into a square.
You have to know how to crochet: chain, sl st, single crochet, double crochet, and puff stitch. You can follow my written pattern or crochet along my video (see links below).


Stay tuned for a few more granny squares (including video tutorials in my YouTube Channel) to make your sweater unique.

Note: To attach your granny squares as you go use all your ch2 spaces along one, two, three or even four sides as well as ch2 spaces in corners. Please be aware that in the video where I demonstrate how to crochet this square I crocheted ch3 in each corner of the last row, but changed the ch3 to ch2 in the written pattern below.

Crochet in the round

side 3

Note: In the video, while I videotaped my last row in SOME of these videos I worked my corner stitches as such: (3 dc, ch3, 3 dc). As I made more of these squares I changed the corner to (3 dc, ch2, 3 dc) - one less chain stitch in the corner. It is better for joining the squares. Thank you for understanding.

Note: Most of the time I work as fast as I can to keep up with knitting and crocheting requests. I have to videotape, edit videos, then convert them & upload them to my channel. After that often I post on my blog patterns. I answer many questions, which means that often I work up to 16 hours a day. I would tremendously appreciate IF anyone of you who finds an error in the written pattern, so please, let me know - where (what rows) and what may be the problem. Many future knitters & crocheters from our artsy and crafty virtual world will thank you for your good deed, including myself.
