How do you mean the square is buckling?..Granny square is relatively simple it was the first thing i ever learned to do..

I had that same problem with my first granny blankie. If you made a bunch of squares, connected them, and are now putting a border around them, I know the problem Tongue

When you get to a spot where two squares are connected, don't put a cluster in each of the adjoining gaps. Put one dc in the first gap, then one in the second gap, and on the next row, you'll treat the pair of dc as a cluster.

i'm trying to make a granny square blanket that is just one big granny square.

but at some point it always ends up buckling and i'm not sure what i'm doing wrong since i'm following  the way it should go.
