I made a granny square and it was too small. I wanted to make it larger. Do I keep adding to the corners each time I make a new row or should I just leave the same amount of stitches for the corners?

Hi Kristi,

Yes, you will want to continue increasing on the corners. This keeps the square shape of the granny square. What are you making with granny squares? I love how versatile they are.

I joined a group that does squares and sends them to Africa for children. More info here : http://www.knit-a-square.com/

 

I didn't add on right for the square that I was talking about so I'll give it another shot. I am really enjoying doing the squares! I find myself searching for new ideas but I think I have plenty to get me started for now.

But... I'm following a paterrn for a square that doesn't increase the corners right now. So,.. that  confuses me.

Motifs of any kind for an afghan can be addicting. I just finished one myself. If you are looking for more granny square patterns, check out the free granny square eBook. You could even adapt some of the other patterns to blankets. Good luck!
