Crochet Easy Granny Square Free Pattern: A vintage classic
It is true that granny squares have a clear vintage vibe, probably due to their immense popularity in the 1960s and 1970s. Crochet was extremely popular during that period, especially granny squares. How can anyone forget The Beatles granny square waistcoats? And Sharon Tate’s beautiful ripple crochet dress. I love that dress so much I have always been tempted to recreate it!
If you enjoy Boho crochet projects, you can find my popular Boho headband pattern here, perfect for festivals and trips to the beach. You can also crochet this Coachella inspired Boho bag. There really is something about crochet that makes it cool, trendy and vintage! I know I love to wear crochet garments during the Summer, and these projects always have a Boho vibe to them.
