I'm still ploughing my way through the very large granny square for the second baby blanket, but it'll be a few days before that's finished so I thought today I would make a slight variation on the basic square:
This one is just as easy to make as a traditional square but comes out with less holes!
Start with a ring of 5 chains joined with a slip stitch.
3 chains, 2 treble crochets, *2 chains, 3 treble crochets, repeat from * 3 times, 2 chains, finish round with a slip stitch in the third of the initial 3 chains of this round.
3 chains, treble crochet in each stitch from previous round, when you reach a corner do 2 treble crochets, 2 chains, 2 treble crochets in the corner space. At the end of the round join with a slip stitch in the third of the initial 3 chains of this round.
Repeat this as many times as necessary to get the size you want.
