G is for granny
Crochet might be thought of as granny-ish by some, but it is in the wind like never before and there are more and more stylish, wonderful and fun designs. Yarn has vastly improved since your granny's time and honestly the good old granny stitch is fashionable.
But let me show you some granny stitches, because granny stitch is
not just for grannies and it is not just the classic granny square.
This is a granny square, a really big one I made in alpaca.
(yes, it is the one I frogged yesterday)
Here is the granny stripe pattern.
Here is the granny ripple stitch
Grannies are very in style at the moment, the colours you choose help define the project as either retro or modern.
I wanted to show you what you can make with this very versatile stitch.

Also you can get the granny square as circles or hexagons and with many different designs on the square.
As you can see the granny is delicate, sturdy, classic and versatile and lots of fun!
