On Fridays, I share a link blast on G+, Twitter and Facebook to get you excited about crocheting all weekend! In keeping with the #FlashbackFriday meme, I’m sharing patterns that were first released at least 12 months ago.
I have a special place in my heart for the granny square, since it is one of the first patterns I learned to read! Today’s roundup includes 15 free crochet patterns using granny squares, granny stripes, and granny ripples.
