Crocheted squares are often called «granny squares». Probably because they often are used in blankets, where granny or somebody else, has worked a great amount of squares in a lot of different colours, and put it all together. It’s a very smart solution for those who have too much left overs of yarn. And most “crafting people” have.
It was not
really the granny squares which were the inspiration for this vest, but some
small hot mats to put on the coffee table. Still, to put something like that
together in a larger piece will very soon bring ones thoughts to granny. That’s
why it’s exciting to make something that’s close, but still is very different,
both in expression and shape.
