The beauty of the granny square is you can work it in any yarn weight. I usually use worsted or light worsted yarn (aran or DK for UK folks) and a H size (5mm) crochet hook.
The instructions below are for the first three rounds. Repeat the instructions for round 3 on further rounds – you can keep on going until your square is massive!
The pattern is in US terminology.

Love the idea of the sc ch2 … will definitely be trying this one
This is so pretty. Which method are you using to join the squares?
I’ve joined the squares by holding the squares so the right sides are facing, then worked slip stitches through the back loops. I’m going to do a tutorial soon so keep checking back to my website!
