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.

It looks like knitting, you use a very long hook or a hook with a cord attached to it

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 Grumbling 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 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
Thumb of 2010-11-21/wren/2eefee

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)
Thumb of 2010-11-21/wren/768c55

Join with a slip stitch, chain 3, turn
Thumb of 2010-11-21/wren/110708

Do a double stitch in that space, then chain 3 and do 2 more doubles

Thumb of 2010-11-21/wren/ff7481

chain 1 and repeat in each chain space, join with a slip stitch, chain 3 and turn
Thumb of 2010-11-21/wren/288052

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.
Thumb of 2010-11-21/wren/698aba

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

Thumb of 2010-11-21/wren/497bb6

There you have it

Ok here is a square granny square. The pictures are not great as I choose the wrong colors and the flash and the camera did not adjust the sitting right

I started with 6 chain stitches then did 4 groups of 4 double stitches joined with 3 chain stitchesThumb of 2010-11-21/wren/5a907a

then joined a second color

Thumb of 2010-11-21/wren/1cd0a3

chain 3
Thumb of 2010-11-21/wren/7d4016
Do 3 double stitches(yes I see that I did make a couple of mistakes) chain 3 then do 3 more doubles, chain 3: repeat in each corner.
Thumb of 2010-11-21/wren/dd44de

Changed color and did single stitches all the way around
Thumb of 2010-11-21/wren/777b5c

slip stitch in each stitch until corner then did 6 chain stitches, skipped the 3 corner stitches then slip stitches, repeated
Thumb of 2010-11-21/wren/99a43c

Last did 4 double stitches then 2 chain 4 double stitches in each corner, chain 1 and 4 double stitches in the center between each corner , chain 1 repeat all the way around.
