    Thanks for the pattern. Just what I was looking for to fill in the sides of a rug I am making with granny squares at 45 degrees to the side. I have one of your books and love it.

    Joyce, I usually join crochet squares, stitch for stitch, with dc (US:sc),… have you seen this page? Right down at the bottom of the page…

    OK, this pattern really clears it all up for me. I’ve only learned to start crochet a few days ago and started watching videos on the half granny square and kept wondering why mine was going all wrong and then I realized I was going around and around the entire tri-angle instead of back and forth across only two sides lol, see I didn’t really notice I was doing it wrong because the video was so zoomed in. I like the visual of this pattern made me see why I went wrong so I’ll give it another go tomorrow 🙂 Thanks!

    Jayne, not entirely sure what you need but did you have a look at the diagonal granny square pattern? Perhaps that will be more helpful
    here’s the link

    Hi, Love the pattern but I am in the same boat. I would do it this way but it wouldn’t match the rest of the squares. I guess you haven’t found a pattern to do one like that. I have tried to make a square the way they say too and without the visual aid I just can’t get mine to look as nice as theirs.

  11. Peggy Mundy says:

    ANY advice you can offer will be appreciated . . . thanks

  12. rensfibreart says:

    Hi Peggy, thank you for your commet – well.. now you’ve stumped me too but I’ll look into it & maybe I’ll be able to come up with something – might take a while but I’ll have a go

  13. Peggy Mundy says:

    sorry . . . read not “red”

  14. Peggy Mundy says:

    thanks for these instrutions . . . however, I have a pattern that calls for a two colored square where the color change is on the diagonal and having red several instructions, for the life of me I cannot figure out how to do this . . . I guess I need more visual aid . . . If I did two half squares and then joined them on the diagonal by sewing together, I guess this would work but would certainly not look as nice as the square that is done all as one piece . . . any suggestions please . . . I am really stumped with this one
