There are a few different ways to go about this, but this I find the easiest.

Granny Square - typical pattern

Make a 6 chain, slip stitch into first chain to form a ring
1st round - Chain 3(counts as first dc), 1 dc into ring, (2ch, 3dc into ring) 3 times, 2ch, 1dc into ring, slip stitch into 3rd chain of beginning chain 3.

2nd round - ch 3, 1 dc into next dc, (1dc, 1ch, 1dc, 1ch, 1dc) into first ch2 space, *1dc into each of next 3dc, (1dc, 1ch, 1dc, 1ch, 1dc) into next 2ch space; repeat from * twice more, 1dc into last dc, slip stitch into 3rd chain of beg.

3rd round - ch 3, 1dc into each of next 2dc, 1dc into next ch space, 1ch, 1dc into next dc, 1ch, 1dc into next ch space, *1dc into each of next 5dc, 1dc into next ch space, 1ch, 1dc into next dc, 1ch, 1dc into next ch space; repeat from * twice more, 1 dc into each of last 2dc, slip stitch into 3rd ch of beg.

4th round - ch3, 1dc into each of next 3 dc, 1 dc into next ch space, 1 ch, (1dc, 1ch, 1dc) into next dc, 1 ch,1 dc into next ch space, *1dc into each of next 7 dc, 1dc into next ch sp, 1 ch, (1dc, 1ch, 1dc) into next dec, 1ch, 1dc into next ch space; repeat from * twice more, 1 dc into each of last 3dc, slip stitch into 3rd chain of beg.

5th round - ch3, 1dc into each of next 4dc, 1dc into next ch space, 1dc into next dc, 1ch, (1dc, 1ch, 1dc) into next ch space, 1ch, 1dc into next dc, 1dc into next ch space * 1dc into each of next 9dc, 1dc into next ch space, 1dc into next dc, 1ch, (1dc, 1ch, 1dc) into next ch space, 1ch, 1dc into next dc, 1dc into next ch space; repeat from * twice more, i dc into each of last 4 dc, slip stitch into 3rd chain of beg. Fasten off.

You can go as big as you want follow this pattern, If you have any ? just ask. I abbreviated the dc - double crochet , ch- chain It take some practice but this is right out of the book that I learned with

I'm taking a break from knitting as I can't figure out how to finish my cat hat for my little guy. So I'm working on my crochet a bit. So I figured I'd take on the classic granny square for a little fun.

I've got 3 questions (warning inexperienced crocheter q's):

1) In the first round you have as the last thing to do -- "slip st. into 3rd ch. of beg. ch. 3". This doesn't mean actually going down to the foundation ch and doing a slip st there does it? I'm assuming this instruction means that I should do a slip st in the 3rd chain at the level I'm working on in rnd 1, right?

2) How does one chain into a space or create a stitch in a space? I think I've kind of answered this in my head and I'm going to take this granny thing for a test run.

3) 4th round: after the first "(1dc, 1ch, 1dc)" it says "into next dec". My question is: Is this a typo and should it read dc?

heh ... I never crocheted a granny square before and I still can't read patterns to save my life so of course I'm leaving it open for Tootsiemomma or another experienced crocheter to answer

Yes the turning chain that you made at the beginning of the round you are on.

2) How does one chain into a space or create a stitch in a space? I think I've kind of answered this in my head and I'm going to take this granny thing for a test run.
Chain/Stitch into the space between the two existing stitches

3) 4th round: after the first "(1dc, 1ch, 1dc)" it says "into next dec". My question is: Is this a typo and should it read dc?
Yes that was a typo, I had to type the whole thing out so lol I'm only human!
