Rnd 1: Start by making a magic ring or ch 4 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring. Ch 2 (these do not count as a stitch), and then 12 dc into the ring. Close with a slip stitch or a neat join and weave in ends .

Rnd 2: Join the next color yarn into any¬†stitch . Ch 3 (count as one dc) and then 1 dc into that same stitch. This is the half of the first point.

Skip a stitch, then 2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc into every other stitch around the circle (in the photo above, the arrows indicate where you'll work your points). When you have completed five points, make 2 dc and 1 ch into the first stitch and join with a sl st to complete the round. Cut your yarn and weave in ends.

Rnd 3: Join your next color yarn into a chain space at one of the points. Ch 3 (these count as a dc), dc into the same chain space.

* Skip 1 ch space, 3 dc into the next ch space (This should be the gap between your starting point the next one, making a flat side of the hexagon). 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc into ch space at the next point. Repeat from * 4 more times.

At the end of the round, make 2 dc and 2 chains in the same space where you started the round. Join to the starting chain with a slip stitch to close the round. Fasten off and weave in ends.

There's something so satisfying about granny squares: they're pretty repetitive, so you can cruise through them without having to concentrate too hard. But they're also totally versatile, so it's easy to spice things up when you want to.

Granny squares are totally adorbs, but let's be honest: They could use an extra shot of style.
