Not a dumb question at all!  I memorized the granny square pattern many years ago, so I don't have anywhere I can point you to, but I'm hoping to do up a tutorial for it eventually.

In the meantime, you might want to try doing a search on Youtube.  Maybe seeing someone do it will help!

I'm about to try this method out tonight, for a last minute item I've decided to add to a swap! Looking at the pictures, I'm pretty sure I understand what you've done, my god this looks so much quicker than the other way I did.

I would suggest doing a ch1 at every join, not just the corners.  It works either way, but with the chains it's a bit... cleaner, imo

thats how I do my grannies, 1 at each join, and 2 in the corners. Different than a lot of people, but that was the way my mom taught me.

Ah, I do 2ch in the corners, and none anywhere else.  Since you're doing a ch1 there anyway, do it as the join, and I think it'll be fine.  Let us know how it goes!

Well... I had issues, but I always do the first time around trying something. I got frustrated, and went back to the regular way since I want to send this package out in the morning.
However, tomorrow I'm going to take pictures of where my issue is, I'm having a hard time finding the words.  Roll Eyes
After I do, whenever you have time, could you please remind me why you are the teacher and I am the student?  Kiss

Ha! I went to reproduce the error, and got it right! I must have been tired last night, lol!
I think this is going to save so much time!

This is fantastic!!  Thank you so much- I've been wanting a good join-as-you-go method for a quickly growing stash of too-small squares.  I'll just add the extra row to each one and join as I'm working.  Thank you thank you thank you!   Grin

I think I love you. I just started working on a granny square blanket with almost 1,000 little squares. I am so glad I saw this before I completed my second square.
