Join avid crocheter Portia and learn the basics of crochet using granny squares. Once you’ve learned the different stitches and you’ve done some practise, you’ll be ready to take on more advanced granny square compilations.

Granny squares got their name as this is how ‘Granny” made a quick and simple crocheted blanket. In more recent times, creatives, including Portia have reshaped and modernised the items that can be made the squares. Realising through clever design that contemporary items can be made easily using different colour combinations in the granny squares.

Crochet is something most beginners can learn quickly. A big advantage of making granny squares for your items is you can crochet without having to lug the ‘in progress’ item around with you. You make the squares individually and then stitch them together. You will have opportunity to make blankets, wearable items, cushion covers, fashionable accessories and the list goes on!

The colours you pair will make a big difference on your finished item so choose carefully so you get the effect you want. You may choose to use less colours to get a more subtle look or more colours for vibrant, up to you! Acrylic or cotton wools are best to get started with on your first projects as they don’t fluff when you handle them.

Included in the fee is a substantial workbook with detailed step by step instruction on the many different crochet stitches, which needles for which wool, free granny square patterns and ‘how to’ layouts for assembling.



  • 3-4 balls of 100g 8ply acrylic yarn (or 8ply cotton of the equivalent if you prefer)
  • 1 x 4.00mm crochet hook
  • scissors
