Crochet Tutorial: Neela Pani Granny Square

I created this Neela Pani design to add to our 365 Days of Granny Squares project. It uses variety of crochet stitches to create a look that reminds me of water! I hope you enjoy making your square!

A couple disclaimers before you start: Be sure to check your tension and use the correct size hook for your square. I demonstrate with an H-5.00mm crochet hook in the video tutorial, but you can make yours bigger or smaller by using a bigger or smaller hook. Also, if yours turns out wonky when you are finished, you may need to block this square to make it nice and flat.


Follow along with this video tutorial to make your own granny square:
