Everyone needs to know how to properly work a classic granny square. This pattern right here is the best way to learn how. I agree that they are versatile for many projects. Remember if you are making a set to use as pot holders or trivets to make them out of double thick cotton yarn. Acrylic yarns can melt and will not offer your hands the protection they need.

As much as I delight in challenging projects, theres just something special about a plainly worked basic granny square. This project highlights everything that is special about this humble project. Theres a reason grannies are one of the first projects most beginners learn how to do. Its a wonderful way to manage the tension in your stitches, and usually offers the crafter a chance to make at least one color change.
