    I have done this square too. I have been crocheting since I was about 7 years old but have never done a granny square! Once I figured out that you have to turn your work at the end of each row and on round 3 once you've turned the work you do 2 tr then 1ch and then work the corer as Maria's instructions. I really enjoyed making my first granny square and am sure I will use it lots in the future.
