In reality, there is a variety of patterns for granny squares. Consequently, by sewing them together, you can use them to make an afghan or blanket.
Where does the name granny square come from? As grandma got older and was no longer up to hard manual labor, she was the one to sit in an armchair and crochet the squares and then sew them together.
In like manner, you can crochet granny stitch as flat rows. Furthermore, you can crochet a triangle shawl using a granny stitch as well as a variety of accessories.
