Creating this granny square tablecloth pattern was a labor of love. This yarn is from my sister’s sweet mother-in-law that recently passed away. My sister was cleaning out her things and ran across a bag of yarn, a started project, and a crochet hook.

I loved the colors that she chose to coordinate with each other. I decided to make four crocheted tablecloths, so I wrote down this granny square tablecloth pattern. One for each of my three nieces and one for my nephew in memory of their grandmother. I hope they like it.
Learning How to Crochet
I learned how to make a granny square not to long ago and started making the black and white granny squares into an afghan – here is the link for that first granny square project. Black and White Granny Squares Afghan I had learned the pattern using this great tutorial that is very clear and easy to understand-here is the link to that. The Humble Granny Square

Begin by making 5 chains (CH), join with a slip stitch to the 5th chain from hook to form a ring.
For this round, you will be working inside the ring. chain 3 and count this chain 3 as your first DC of this round and throughout the entire pattern. continuing working in the ring, work 2 DC. Then chain 3. 3 DC, CH 3, 3DC, CH3, 3DC, CH3 and join into the top of the beginning chain. This join completes the first shell of the first round. (note, you should have 4 clusters of 3 DC with 4 areas of CH 3 between)
CH 4 (This will count as your first DC plus a 1 CH). Then in the first CH 3 SP, [3 DC, 3 CH, 3 DC and CH 1]. Continue the stitch pattern between the [ ] until the last CH 3 SP. In the last CH 3 SP, work the 3 DC, 3 CH, then work only 2 DC and join with a SL into the 3rd chain of the beginning CH STs. This join will complete the round. (You should have 8 shells, 4 chain 3 spaces, and 4 CH 1 spaces).
CH 3 (Counts as a DC), Insert the hook into the CH 1 SP from the previous row, (Should be right where the previous row ended). YO and work a DC, Insert hook again, YO and DC. (This completes your first 3 DC in the round). CH 1. [In the corner CH 3 SP work (3 DC, 3 CH, 3 DC. and CH 1)]. In the next CH 1 SP work 3 DC and 1 CH]. Repeat between [ ] 3 more times until all 4 sides are complete. After the last DC in the CH 3 space CH 1 and SL ST into the top ST of the first DC of this round. (You should have 12 shells and 12 spaces after the completion of this round).
Rounds 4 and Beyond
Continue working round 2 and 3 until your project is the desired size that you wish.
When you have your tablecloth the size you would like, finish off with two rows of DC.
