A ~ Fiber ~ Art ~ Moment 🌺 Granny Squares Rock πŸ˜Ž

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’• Great to see you again! πŸ˜€

As you probably know by now…I have a thing for Granny Squares. It was a slow growing love, but now I design everything around those beauties. πŸ˜€

And it turns out – there are a lot of us.

I researched them a bit, and found the first mention of (then called) Patchwork Squares in a publication from the late 1800s πŸ€“ The book is called “Victorian crochet by weldon and company published in 1895”. It is wildly speculated that women used every and any scrap of yarn to make a warm blanket, and came up with this pretty pattern…probably long before 1895. πŸ˜‰ I could not find any info why they’re called ‘Granny Squares’ though. If you know, please tell us! 😊

Now let’s take a look at what’s out there in the Patchwork department…

I do like this dress 😏


These are cute…

         
       

Sir Paul rocks the ‘Granny Square’ 😜

Now, dresses, skirts, tops I can see myself wearing, but the pants are not for me πŸ™ƒ

       
What about you? Would you rock the pants? If you just uttered a giddy ‘Yes’ … Alright! πŸ˜€ I do admire the wild and crazy you! 😁

While those  β¬†οΈ  are a touch and go, for these here ⬇️ I only have a firm ‘No’ 😳

🀣

    The top maybe, but the shorts (panties?) are a ‘Nope’! 

But that’s just me…. 😊 Again, if you love it… Go and rock it! πŸ€—
These are the most notable outfits I could fine. I’m sure there are a lot more out there. If you find/made a spectacular piece- I’d love to see it! πŸ˜ƒ

Thank you for visiting! πŸ’œ I hope you enjoyed your stay! 

Come back soon! 

Until then πŸ’•
