It’s true that in fashion, everything comes back into style eventually, so you may have noticed that crochet garments and accessories are having a bit of a moment right now.

Crochet clothing was super trendy in the 70s, crochet tops, tunics, skirts, pants and shorts were all the rage. Even the crochet bikini had its moment. I still can’t see how a crochet bikini is practical, but things were different back then I guess.

If your a crafty gal like me, you wont need much prompting to get out the hooks and start crocheting. I love a bit of 70s style, and unlike the crochet bikini, a crochet granny square cardigan is something I love to wear.

    Thanks for putting this collection of granny square sweaters together. I have pinned a lot of them in the past and say one day I’ll make one of these. But your collection has spurred me on to really take the hook in hand and start! Glad you posted again. I’ve missed your brightness!
