Gaga for Granny Squares!

Gaga for Granny Squares

GO GAGA FOR GRANNY SQUARES

While these love-it-or-hate-it little squares have most likely been around since the dawn of crochet (Because what else do you do with your scraps?), examples have be found as early as 1891 in publications like Butterick’s The Art of Crochet. 

And now they’re back!
