It Looks Like a Granny Square … But It’s Not. The Granny Square Print But Not Crocheted.

Back in August I did a post here on the blog of fabrics printed with crochet designs. One of the most popular motifs to see printed onto fabric was the classic granny square. This is the quintessential crochet image that everyone knows as crochet so when people are looking to recreate the “crochet style” without actually crocheting it’s this print that comes to mind.

  1. My first thought was, “hey, that’s cheating!” but then I realized I really like the look of granny squares anyway 🙂

  2. Clever! But not so cosy. Loving those crochet hooks though!

  3. I love it. The more the motif gets into the pubic eye the more interest generated in our beloved craft.
