    9" Granny Square Pattern
    We made these at LDS women's conference April 2005, and I have re-written the directions for clarity.

    Size I Hook
    Chain 29
    Row 1. Dc in 4th chain from hook and in the next 2 chains. Chain 1, skip one chain, *double crochet in the next 3 stitches, chain 1 and skip 1*, repeat  between *'s until end of the row (end with your group of 3 double crochets).   Ch 3 and Turn.
    Rows 2 - 16: (basically repeating first row) Double Crochet in the double crochet stitches of the former row and chain 1 in between, until you have 16 rows.
    Square should measure 9"

    Make 20 to make a lovely baby blanket .  Stitch together 4 across and 5 down.  Blanket = 36" x 45"

    LDS HUMANITARIAN 8 1/3" Granny Square


    lds square
    ch: chain   dc: double crochet   sl st: slip stitch   sp: space
    Bev's directions for one color squares
    Size K hook.
    1 oz of Worsted Weight yarn and a few yards of black WW yarn
    Ch 5, join to form a ring.
    Rnd 1: Ch 3 (counts as a dc in this and all following rnds), 2 dc in ring; (ch 3, 3 dc in ring) 3 times; ch 2; join in 3rd ch of beg ch-3;  sl st to the next ch 3 space.
    Rnd 2: ch 3, in same sp work (2 dc, ch 3, 3 dc): corner made; * ch 1, sk next 3 dc, in next ch-3 sp work (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc): corner made; rep from * twice more; ch 1, sk next 3 dc; join in 3rd ch of beg ch-3: sl st to the next ch 3 space.
    Rnd 3: ch 3, in same sp work (2 dc, ch 3, 3 dc): corner made; * ch 1, sk next 3 dc, 3 dc in next ch-l sp: 3-dc group made; ch 1, sk next 3 dc, in next ch-3 corner sp work (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc): corner made; rep from * twice more; ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-l sp: 3-dc group made; ch 1, sk next 3 dc; join in 3rd ch of beg ch-3; sl st to the next ch 3 space.

    Repeat this pattern until square measures 7".  (For me that is 6 rounds)

    Final round: This forms a SOLID border - not the usual granny square border!
    Sl st to the corner as before and make the corner, as before
    ch 3, in same sp work (2 dc, ch 3, 3 dc). *Now dc in every stitch to next corner, and make corner as in previous rounds (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc)
    .  Repeat from * to end of round.  End off and tie a knot in the cut yarn.  Work 4" tail of yarn back into square.

    This square should now be approximately 8 1/3" square.  They look wonderful when all stitched together.


    I thought you might like to see a blanket I put together with donated squares, and that's yours truly holding it.  For this blanket the square makers typed up their favorite scriptures and comforting words and I tied those on there too.  Edging (5 dc, skip a couple of sts and do 5 more dc):
