Erm...you cant. You can minimise the grid (by pressing "[" key), but it will still stick to edges.

Hold ALT and it will release from snapping to grid.

be careful creating geometry off the grid. it's generally a bad idea.

instead of not aligning it to the grid, just make the grid finer. It will give you more control. There are two buttons up at the top left of the toolbar, under the file button. They have a + and - on the icons.

Can also use '[' and ']' keyboard shortcuts.
