How to Make a Granny Square

I have the most amazing granny square project coming up here at Tangled Happy. I can't wait to share it with you all! This project got me so excited about granny squares it inspired me to make a granny square how to.

This pattern is written for a granny square up to four rounds joining a new color after each round. Use any yarn you like with a crochet hook in a size suitable for your yarn. 

Starting out: Ch6, join the ends of the chain with a slip st to form a ring. You are now working in rounds.
Round 1: Ch 3(count as first dc), then work 2dc into center of the ring, ch3. Now work {3dc into center of the ring, ch3}. Repeat {} two more times. Slip st in top of beginning ch3 to join. Fasten off. 
Note: If you want to make your granny square one solid color do not fasten off. Continue with the same color, slip st in each of the next two stitches, then slip st into the ch3 corner space. Continue to the next round.
Round 2: Join second color with a slip st to one of the ch3 corner spaces. Ch3(count as first dc), then work 2dc, ch3, 3dc in the same corner space as join, ch1. Now work {3dc, ch3, 3dc, in next ch3 corner space, ch1}. Repeat {} two more times.  Slip st in top of beginning ch3 to join. Fasten off.
Round 3: Join third color with a slip st to one of the ch3 corner spaces. Ch3(count as first dc), then work 2dc, ch3, 3dc in the same corner space as join, ch1. Now work {3dc in the ch1 space from the previous round, ch1, 3dc, ch3, 3dc in next ch3 corner space, ch1}. Repeat {} two more times. Work 3dc in the last ch1 space from previous round, ch1. Slip st in top of beginning ch3 to join. Fasten off.
Round 4: Join fourth color with a slip st to one of the ch3 corner spaces. Ch3(count as first dc), then work 2dc, ch3, 3dc in the same corner space as join, ch1. Now work {3dc, ch1 in each ch1 space from the previous round. 3dc, ch3, 3dc in next ch3 corner space, ch1}. Repeat {} two more times. Work 3dc, ch1 in each ch1 space from previous round, ch1. Slip st in top of beginning ch3 to join. Fasten off. Weave ends.
Note: If you want to make your granny square bigger continue working 3dc, ch3, 3dc in each corner and 3dc, ch1 in each of the ch1 spaces from the previous round. 
Super simple right! More granny square goodness to follow next week. Wishing you all a happy weekend!
