How to crochet Traditional Granny square

This traditional granny square looks good when worked with vibrant color yarns for each row. I have made these granny squares for jute storage wall hanging, so I have used colored jute. This has made these squares bit stiff but you use acrylic or any other yarn you will get nice soft squares.

Usually these traditional granny squares are made with loop of chain in the beginning but for my project I didn’t want any hole in the center so I have started with magic ring. You can make loop of chain 5 and then start the same pattern described below.
