Step 1: SC in the 3rd stitch from the hook

Step 2: continue the SC in each chain for next all stitches ( the last one could be a bit tricky)

This will give you  a little base like shown in the picture. This is the end of Round 1 for Crochet Granny Stripes

Round 2:

From here we will start the Granny Pattern of the stripes. Please note we are using only one colour so it will be a continuation.

Step 5: When you reach towards the end make a DC in the last stitch(It can be a bit Tricky)

Here we complete this round. Now let us go to the third round

Round 3:

We are on the 3rd round now, we will continue the above method but a bit different, mark that now the row will start with a 3DC cluster and not a single DC unlike the earlier round

Round 3

Step 1: Ch 2 and turn your work (this will count as 1st DC) (We tried with a chain 3 as 1st DC but that gave us a big hole on the side, hence chain 2)

Step 2: make 2 more DC in the space created in round 2(see the pic for better understanding)

Step 3: in the next space make 3DC

Step 4: Continue this till the end

Please note since we started with a 3DC cluster it will also end with a 3DC cluster

This brings us to the end of this round. Hope you got an idea about the pattern. We will do 1 more round just for a better understanding.
