We’ve run the gambit on crocheting here on the show. We’ve shown you the crochet basics, how to solve a few “crochissues”, and how to craft “crochanimal” furniture leg covers.

Today we’re kicking it up a notch and giving you the ticket or the “crochicket,” to the world. We’re showing you how you can create a classic granny square which will unlock your ability to make everything from swim cover-ups to afghans.

Continue in that pattern to make the granny square as large as you want to make it!
