Great Grannies

I just love granny stitches, in my opinion they are the bread and butter of crochet, and perhaps the first stitch you learn.  Create a blanket, or clothing, make an appliqué or spice up your home, the possibilities really are endless.  Granny stitches have overcome the basic square and can be transformed into almost any shape, (circle, square, chevron, stripes, diamonds, etc.) making the grannies a modern stitch to love.  I love them so much I wanted to share with you some of my favorite granny projects.  These amazing crafters are sharing their very creative grannies for FREE, please be sure to show them some love if you get a chance.  Without further ado I bring you 10 free Great Granny patterns.
