Crochet/Repairing a Grannie Square


How do you repair the center of a grannie square that has unraveled?

Hi Angie!
Thanks for asking! I believe it can be done, but takes a lot of patience. Granny square patterns vary slightly. I have in front of me a granny square, so I have something to look at. I have a pattern, too for a granny square. I assume you are talking about a granny square afghan in which one square has unraveled. Are all the squares the same color, or same color pattern? What I need to do first is to crochet a granny square for a few rounds, and then cut it somewhere so I can explain how to repair it. Please give me a day or so to do this.

I have crocheted many doilies, I enjoy working with crochet thread. I have crocheted numerous afghans. But I have little to no experience in the afghan stitch, or hairpin lace. If you have a question pertaining to a pattern in a magazine, book or leaflet, please include the name and # of it, and the page or pattern #. There is a slight possibility I may have that pattern, and can refer to it. Nearly all of my crochet magazines, leaflests, etc are over 5 years old. Many are from the 80's and before. Although I have crocheted sweaters and slippers,I don't feel I have done enough of them to really give good advice as to assembling the pieces, but can give advice on the type of stitches.


I have been a crocheter for over 30 years.
