Most crocheters love the granny stitch and must have made something in this stitch. So, designing the granny square top many years ago felt like fulfilling a basic right in the crochet community. Tell me, what have you made anything using the granny stitch? What’s your favorite thing to make using this stitch?
I prefer calling this top “not your regular granny’s top” as it has a beautiful neckline as opposed to just joining two panels of squares together at the neck. All in a bit to make this design so unique and beautiful. Another great thing about this top is the use of colors! I have added a beautiful twist of using up your stash and never worrying about the colors coordinating or not. You can totally go color-blocking with this top!.
