 Beware, knitters, beware. It's crochet time with the return of the granny square.
They were actually part of a topshop collection this winter. See the coat/ tunic here. And there´s a whole lot of models wearing granny square dresses. More  here and other faboulous projects you can find on ravelry (to view patterns you need no account, but really, you do!): A skirt,  a hat, a jacketslippers, and I love this hoodie or how about this project.. Even a bikini 
Oh, why don´t I give you the whole pattern search.. Voila.
And yes, I do like granny squares. And yes, I made my own cardi at age 15, unvented from a picture in a fashion catalogue. It was screaming acrylic, because nobody would give me enough money for lovely coloured wool. But I did invent the squares, and I did steek, without thinking too much about it because how else would I get the V-neck, and pick up stitches for the knit on edging. My granny was so proud of me. And I wore the thing to school, which was, in hindsight, probably not as cool as I thought. But hey, I made it. (Yes there are pictures, and I'll bring them to the meeting)
And honestly, who doesn´t have this neverending blanket tucked away in a closet. Maybe we should all take the poor squares out and turn them into something else...
