I created this Snail’s Pace Granny Square design to add to our 365 Days of Granny Squares project. It uses variety of crochet stitches to create a snail in a square! It’s for times in your life when you feel like you’re moving at a snail’s pace, but hey, at least you’re moving forward! 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 learn how to make this granny square:
My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.
