How to Crochet a Granny Square Afghan – A Free Crochet Pattern

One of the first afghans I ever crocheted as a teenager was a large granny square afghan.  After all of these years it is one of the easiest to crochet but it can be crocheted in several different ways.  Some granny square afghans have a large hole in the center.  The one I crocheted above is made using the magic circle method in order to close the hole in the center of the afghan.  Granny squares are typically crocheted by turning with 3 dc in each corner but you can do 1 or 2 dc in order to make the holes smaller as we have done on the above afghan.  Granny squares can also be made as individual squares and crocheted together.  I have a listed a few free and other patterns below for you to try out for your next Granny square crochet afghan.
