I'm getting really excited by the prospect of crocheting my first granny square blanket. (Sad, but I don't get out much). I've sorted out a bag of Aran wool and am going to make a start as soon as I have finished a couple of current projects.
One thing I have learned about crochet is that it is less of an exact art than knitting. Crochet is more adaptable and forgiving than knitting. For decades I have followed knitting patterns and ended up with the expected result. I've been looking at granny square patterns and the corners seem to vary from 2 to 3 chain stitches. On forums, however, some crocheters say they chain only 1 stitch and some say they chain zero stitches. No wonder I am confused!!!!
I would really love to hear what you lovely crocheters do. Please vote in the poll which can be found at the top of my right hand sidebar. Please vote according to what YOU normally do.
If you would like to leave a comment at the end of this blog to explain why you chain 0,1,2, or 3 stitches, that would be great as well.
The poll is open until March 24th by which time I will probably be reaching for my hook. I will publish the poll results on March 25th.
