Crochet Granny Square: Unique Puff Post with NO HOLES

Everyone adores granny squares, but let’s be honest, sometimes the typical granny stitch can feel a bit predictable and repetitive. That’s why we’re on the lookout for something different, something more fun and brand new to spice things up! So I’m excited to share a beautiful, updated version of the solid crochet Granny Square that not only looks incredibly pleasing but also boasts a new design with almost NO HOLES! This updated pattern simplifies the creation process, making it wonderfully easy to craft even for beginners.

Take a look at the picture showing two granny squares crafted from yarns of different sizes. The first square was made using Size 3 yarn and a 4 mm hook, while the second one – Size 0/1 yarn with a 3 mm hook. Also, by changing the yarn size and hook, you can achieve varying effects in your crochet squares but still make it solid.
