Crochet Granny Square

A simple crochet granny square, I remember when I was a little girl making bag fulls of these lol and my Mother saying just what are you going to do with all these squares Heather?

I used to put them together to make blankets, but now they can be used for practically anything i.e tote bags, covers, kitchen items, hot pads etc.

If you are just starting to learn to crochet, this pattern is an ideal one to begin with.
