Square Up Your Afghan
Have you ever self designed an afghan where the middle of the afghan is dipping inward and the corners are projecting outwards and the middle sections are sucking inwards.
There are reasons why this is happening. Let’s review them.
It’s possible you have added too many stitches to a corner or corners in the past rounds. In my case, that’s not the issue as I am a professional crocheter and have followed the rules of thumb for that.
It’s possible that the stitchwork has additional tension created in the rounds below. In my case, this is the reality.
It’s possible, you have done both issues.

How to Crochet Mitered Modern Granny
I hope you enjoy this new twist on the Modern Granny. I’ve crocheted this project starting in one corner and building it similar to corner to corner technique. You start by building a mitered square, then when you have the preferred width, you continue just working your rows back and forth on one side instead of two. This crochet blanket becomes completely and easily scale-able to any size you desire.
For this project, I used 5 Caron Chunky Cakes in colorway Trifle. The finished size is 46″ x 60″. You can easily continue on in pattern to either make is wider, longer or both. The Modern Granny block stitch and the #6 weight yarn makes this a fast and easy project. You can use any yarn if you prefer to stripe your project to match your decor.

Crochet for beginners : Easy traditional granny square
While I was learning to crochet, I found it difficult to find a video which showed enough detail to learn from. I really hope this tutorial will help a few of you with getting to grips with crochet, the granny square is a brilliant starting point as it teaches the basic stitches and you can use it for lots of projects! I’ve shown 3 rounds here, but you can continue going around the square in the same way until you have a big enough square to call it a blanket, or you can make lots of squares and join them.
Thanks for watching, this is my first tutorial so I’d love to know if this has helped you!
