## What Is A Mitered Granny Square

This mitered granny square pattern showcases a small two-round granny square nestled in the corner, it is surrounded by rounds of colorful colors that are worked on two sides of the square, creating a distinctive and sophisticated mitered effect. The design is then framed with a single-color border.

## Tips For Making Granny Squares

**Tighten the starting ring** - If you have used a magic circle to start the granny square, pull it tight to close the center, and securely weave in the end to ensure it does not work itself open in the future.

**Be consistent with your tension** - Having an even stitch tension will make the square look good, and the squares will be relatively consistent in size.

**Count stitches **- Regularly count your stitches to catch mistakes early.

**Choose the right yarn **- When learning to crochet, choose a smooth, medium-weight yarn it will be easier for you to identify stitches and easier to work with.

**Block Your Squares** - Block your finished squares for a neater, more professional look.

**Weave in ends** - Weave in yarn ends as you go to save time later.

**Read patterns carefully** - When crocheting a new granny square pattern for the first time, take your time and read the pattern before starting. This will help you become aware of any new stitches or terms you may need to know before starting the pattern.

**Don't stress mistakes** - Mistakes happen, don't be afraid to undo and redo a few stitches or rounds if they happen.

**Yarn color change - **When making the color changes, pull the new color through the last two loops of the last stitch of the round - by doing this, the pattern will flow like it would when using a single color.

## Finishing

Use a yarn needle to weave in the loose ends and if necessary block the squares to ensure that they are of an even size and shape to make joining easier

## Easy Ways To Join Granny Squares Together

Once you have completed multiple granny squares, the next step is to join them together to create a larger project.

And there are many ways to do this, depending on the desired final product and the look you want to achieve.

### Here are a few techniques for joining granny squares:

- Whipstitch - This simple method use a needle and thread to sew the squares together. The stitches are worked through the back loops of each square, creating an invisible seam on the front.
- Single crochet join - This method involves using a single crochet stitch to join the squares together. The squares are held with the wrong sides facing each other, and the single crochet stitches are worked through the back loops of the squares to create a decorative border.
- Slip stitch join - This method involves using a slip stitch to join the squares together. The squares are held with the right sides facing each other, and the slip stitch is worked through the back loops of each square to create a decorative ridge on the front.
- Join-as-you-go - This method involves crocheting the squares together as you work on each square. This creates a continuous seam that eliminates the need to sew the squares together later.
