Step 2: Making the granny square
If you already know how to make granny squares you can jump ahead to step 6.
Here are a list of abbreviations that I will be using a:
ch(s) chain stitch(s)
dc double crochet
sl st slip stitch
yo yarn over
To begin make a slip knot (form a loop and pull another loop through it with your hook -see image 1 and 2 below).
Yarn over (wrap yarn over your hook from back to front -see image 3)
Pull the yarn through the loop to make a new loop (image 4), do not tighten. This is your first chain stitch (ch).
Step 3: Forming the ring
The next step is to make a slip stitch (sl st). To do this, insert your hook into the first chain stitch (beside the slip knot -see image 2). Yarn over (yo) (image 3) and draw the hook through both loops (image 4). This creates a ring.
