What is a granny square? A granny square pattern is a name for a motif that’s worked in granny clusters. A granny cluster is a group of 3 double crochets (or in UK terms, trebles). All three double crochets are worked in the same stitch or space, separated with chains from other clusters.
How long does it take to make a granny square?
Depends on the pattern and how big it needs to be. Plus the thickness of the yarn and the size of the hook. Using three strands of worsted weight and a huge size Q hook, I can make a three or four foot wide square granny square blanket in about four hours.
