I love making giant granny squares, but sometimes I wished they weren’t so square. To keep the pattern of the traditional granny square without the traditional shape, I came up with a way to make a straight granny. Straight Granny Blanket is available in two sizes, infant and child, with written instructions on how to crochet both sizes. If you love the traditional granny stitch, then you’ll love making a Straight Granny Blanket!
