After getting a glimpse of the cute granny square afghan in this post, several of you exclaimed over it, and mschatelaine asked Ohdeedoh for a how-to. To be honest, we don't even know how to crochet (though we do knit... slowly), so we hunted online for the most detailed granny square tutorial we could find...
This set of instructions from Crochet Cabana is about as detailed as you could want. What we like about this tutorial is that it doesn't assume you know everything about crocheting, but instead provides links wherever explanation (or side tutorials) might be required... such as learning how to crochet to begin with.
And for some fabulous inspiration, check out the Grannysquares Pool on Flickr.
