yes very easy. You fold the Hexagon in hakf and it makes a "L" with equal legs. you saw one "leg" to make a arm and then sow one side of the other with the second square to join the back. http://www.kootoyoo.com/2010/05/how-to-make-granny-shrug.htm...
(their triple is our double)
I did this one with 2 threads one dark gray and one light gray. I have started a second one with one thread but am doing a triple stitch and a very large hook to make a lacy look.
OK since my first attempt at a granny square turned out like a top to a fingertip glove, dont know how I did it, sure wont do it again, then I decided to move on to something more simple. My ears are getting chilly so I thought I would try and crochet the thingy that goes around your head and covers your ears, you know a simple band... ROF.. well lets just say two hours later I had neither a granny square or a head band... LOLOL I have pictures on the phone, have to figure how to transfer them...
That would be wonderful, but what I really need is how to crochet a band?? I mean it keeps getting smaller as I got more rows on there?? LOL Tried another granny square last night, we so wont go there but Billy said he could show me how... LOLOL we that did not happen.
That sounds like it to me. relax when you are working
Here is the steps for a Hexagon granny square
Chain 4-6 stitches join with a slip stitch and the chain 2 to 3 stitches depending if you are doing a single or a double stitch
next do a double stitch then chain 2-3, 2 more doubles, chain 3 repeat until you have 6(if you are doing a square you only repeat for four groups)
Join with a slip stitch, chain 3, turn
Do a double stitch in that space, then chain 3 and do 2 more doubles
chain 1 and repeat in each chain space, join with a slip stitch, chain 3 and turn
Do 2 doubles, chain 1 repeat until you get to a corner, then 2 double, 3 chain, 2 couple, chain on. As it gets larger you will have more 1 chain spaces for the doubles.
To make the vest once you get the square big enough to go half around you you fold the 2 squares in have to make a two arms and sow one "arm" along the edges and one of the other edges to the other square to make the back
Remember Lingernot that stayed with me? well my granny square could have been used for a ball cap for him. I dont know what I am doing wrong, but they make cute finger caps..
Ok so Lets start at the beginning, I understand the I started with 6 chain stitches
Then I loose it here 4 groups of 4 double stitches joined with 3 chain stitches
