I stink...
At crochet. :-/

I've been trying to get past a basic granny square for over a year. Every time I try to hook a single crochet etc blanket, it goes wrong, wrong....wrong.

What goes wrong? Do you know?

You'll get it! It is just like knitting you have to have patience and practice. :thumbsup:

It looks...ugly. it starts to curl and the edges look weird. :-(

I can chain, single crochet, make a shell...I have a couple of books with amazing, beautiful squares etc I want to make but... I'm not that advanced. *sigh*

I've not crocheted for a couple years now but as I recall there does tend to be a curl to the fabric. Neater ends to rows and nicer edges comes with practice and guess what! You can add a border and hide it! I almost always added a border even if it was just sc to even things out and make it look better.

All mine.

Your third link didn't work. The other three are nice.
I never liked putting squares together so I never actually made a granny square afghan. You're ahead of me there!

You made those? They look great if you did :)
I have been crocheting for 30 years now and I still hate putting together squares. I use the diagonal stitch for blankets.

The pattern use to be free.

I use the same stitch for wash cloths.

That's pretty. They're charging for that pattern? Ridiculous!
