How big should a crochet granny square be?

Are all granny squares the same size?

For me, granny squares are really easy to make and generally come out about the same size. and there are more flexible joining methods that help adjust for the small size differences.

What if my granny squares aren’t the same size?

Go up or down a hook size

Create your square in a different hook size, so that it comes out with the correct measurements. Usually just 1 hook size up or down (depending) will be sufficient to fix the gauge.
