Class Sessions

The Granny Stitch (27:10)
The classic granny stitch pattern is worked using chains and double crochet stitches. Tamara shows you how to work the stitch pattern in rows and rounds. Then tackle increases and decreases.

The Basic Granny Square (14:55)
Once you’re familiar with the fundamental stitch, it’s time to tackle your first square. Work through the basic square in a single color, then learn how to make a two-color version, playing with color along the way.

Making Better Grannies (17:48)
Now that you have the basic granny square under your belt, find out how to make it better. From a magic circle start that keeps your center tight to chainless stitches, Tamara gives your grannies a professional polish.

Shape Shifting (19:11)
Ready to think outside the box? In this lesson, learn how to make granny triangles, hexagons and octagons.

Joining Grannies (21:04)
Explore three different methods for joining motifs: sewn joins, simple crochet joins, and join-as-you-go.

Granny Square Vest (26:51)
This hooded vest is the perfect project to practice your new skills. It requires only granny squares and the granny stitch, and the simple shape comes together with clever seaming. Tamara guides you to make it stitch by stitch in this final lesson.
