Born of Necessity, Raised to an Icon
The Granny Square. For many of us the name elicits memories of colorful afghans and outrageous fashions that helped define the 70s. But who is she and where did she come from? To understand we need to take a look at the history of crochet to find where granny fits in.
A Crochet Timeline
Granny becomes an Icon?
I hope that you enjoyed Part I of The Granny Square Project. A series that I'm working on as part of A Year of Projects over on Ravelry.
Now that I’ve taken a look at where granny comes from, I’m ready to see what she’s made of. From the traditional pattern to the mulitlayered, the bobbled to the hexagon. Whatever stitch combinations you can imagine, someone has made it into a granny square! Please join me next week for Part II. Who knows what I’ll discover next!
Thanks for stopping by friends! Until next time,
Be blessed and stitch & read with love!
