corner start granny pattern w/ pictures
*edited to add* I can read this fine, but I also wrote it so its easier for me. If YOU have any problems or are confused, please email me. *I* prefer my granny squares with NO chain spaces between each block. If YOU like/need them, feel free to include them.
The only chain spaces you will have, and are spoken about, is the ch1 at either end. If T=dc, * = chain, \T/= block, your pattern will look like this on the first row T*\T/*T
The second row: T*\T/\T/*T
First row again: T*\T/*T
form ring in preferred manner, either chain N and join, or the magic ring method.
ch4 (counts as 1dc and ch1) 3dc, ch1, 1dc in ring. [turn at the end of each row]
ch4, 3dc in ch1sp, [3dc, ch1, 1dc] in last space.
ch4, 3dc in ch1sp, 3dc in next N sp/s [3dc, ch1, 1dc] in last space.
continue for as wide as you want your work, be it a dishcloth, cushion cover, afghan.
ch3, skip 1st sp, 3dc in N, dc in last sp
repeat until there is one shell left.
[optional] when you are have finished the last shell, ch2, 1dc in last space. This gives you a ‘pointy’ corner to make joining blocks easier.
‘N’ for the most part, means ‘any number.’ The chain N and join…could be chain 4 [or 5 or 6] whatever is ‘your’ optimum for chain/ring starts.
in this section “ch4, 3dc in ch1sp, 3dc in next N sp/s [3dc, ch1, 1dc] in last space.” N for row 3 would be ’3dc in next space’ – row 4, ’3dc in next 2 spaces’, etc
