Crochet Granny Rectangle Afghan + Tutorial | The Crochet Crowd
I have made some tweaks to how I do them since I first posted this and thought it deserved a new post. Skip 2 stitches, 3dc in same stitch. Continue across, skipping 2 and doing 3dc in the same stitch. When you reach the last ch, 1dc. Ch3 counts as a dc. To continue on, you would repeat as in the 2 rounds shown. Ch3 works fine for smaller projects, but ch2 would be better for larger items.
For those times you are using this to make a blanket and want to make your grannies with the ch1 between clusters. Like Like. Hi Sue , This was very helpful. After you slip stitch, do u chain any to continue with pathern. Thanks Deb. Thank you for sharing this; never did rectangle in all my years of crochet; this looks super easy : , even the diagram is clear;. Thank you so much. Very clear pattern that even I can read.
Always wanted to make a rectangular blanket. Like Liked by 1 person. With this pattern I will be able to do it. But the time to make the yarn on top of doing the crochet has kept me from starting.. Here is a video of making one long piece of yarn. Fast and easy. Thank you for sharing that video, that is very easy! I think I will go put that in a post to share with everyone.
Not pretty, and seemed a weak spot. Thank you taking the time to lay out this variation. My question is, to continue the pattern, would a ch 3 be needed in the corners rather than ch 2 as in traditional granny squares?
I always do ch3 in the corners of any granny square, that works out for me. You could do with ch2 and see if you like how it works out. Any way to prevent? I always felt I needed the ch3 to have room for all the stitches in the corners, but if I do my chains looser then ch2 works as well.
Unless I am not understanding the difficulty you are having correctly. Thanks for this great way to do a long granny square! I used this to make a long granny square scarf and it looks great! I love this stitch! Thank you so much for sharing. I have a request thou. I would love to make my son a blanket for bed using this stitch , but i have a problem. I am not quite sure how to figure it out if you could help me it would be great, just the starting part is all i need.
It is like stitches to get started just all i need is the first stitch to start and the turn stitch if you can help…thanks. I am not sure I know what you mean, I think I would need the pattern to see what I would try to change it to do this way instead…. I can never figure out how to do that.
Thank You! Thanks for the help with this pattern! Such a beautiful blanket! Thanks so much for sharing it, it gives me joy and inspiration to see that people have made something from my pattern. I like the look of this version of your granny rectangle. I was just wondering if you have the crochet multiples for this granny rectangle so I can make it longer. Thank you so much for this. I have been looking to see how to tackle a rectangle.
You have made it so simple. The pictures are a great help. Thank you. Very nicely written. Job well done. I would like to see a project or a longer pattern because mine is not turning out so well. My friend, who is also a fellow crochter, thought to add an extra shell for the increasing of the pattern. Where do you go from here to start another row and continue? Chain 3 then start working in the corner?
I love your idea of rectangle afghan because it is not baggy like others it really show stitches looks neat. Thank you for sharing your idea. Your photos show this, but it might help beginners to understand exactly what to do next. Very easy and I like the multiples I am assuming it is in muliples of three plus 1, that is how I am reading it. The only thing I did change was to ch 1 in the corners I do that with regular granny squares also, like the tighter look better rrather than ch 3 or ch 2.
My next idea is to see how to connect them if I do just a few rounds with the join as you go method that I use for regular squares. Would be cool to see what happens. I am just finishing my first blanket with this pattern.
I am so pleased with the results!! It was fast and easy and I will be making several more. Thank you so much for this fabulous tutorial. I featured it today on my Weekly Inspiration post on my blog:. I think you will have to make a test strip to sort that out. There are too many variables, yarn weight, hook size, how you crochet, if you want it closer to square or longer that will all effect the start. I added a print icon at the end of each post, so that should make it easy to print the blog post.
Please advise how I make a giant granny rectangle blanket? Ch3, which counts as the first dc and continue on. If you are changing colors, yes you break it off. Hello, I started to crochet and I undestand everything…. My english is bad too but I try to do a translation.
Thank you for your tutorial…. I love this! This is great! Thank you! For some reason I end up with 4 stitches at the end instead of 3 when I follow your pattern. But I still end up with 4 chains at the end. Am I missing something? I am not. I start by skipping 5 chains and crocheting into the 6th chain from the hook. For some reason I cannot seem to figure this out! Could you potentially upload a few more pictures of your starting chain indicating where you start and end?
There is nothing wrong with you, you are right! You will have an extra if you ch22 like I have in the written directions, it is a typo!!!!!. If you count the stitches in the diagram and in the photo you will only count 21! Thanks for being persistent and asking, I never would have seen the typo otherwise! It is being corrected right now…. Eventually I followed the diagram and got it correct! Thanks for helping and being so patient and kind! But I always chain extras anyway, provisionally, for all projects and then unravel back to where I need to be at the end of the project!
I have a feeling trouble counting is more widespread than we would think! With longer starting chains, I have been putting in stitch markers and jotting it down as I go.
