When you hear the phrase granny squares, you might not think ‘hip’ or ‘fashionable’ right away. But think about Blanche Devereaux from The Golden Girls. Now that’s a sassy southern belle with style! Though she comes from a traditional background, Blanche can be surprising and glamorous–just like granny squares!
Your friends at AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns.com have gathered some glamtastic granny squares we think the hippest grannies around, The Golden Girls, would like if they crocheted. Here’s what good old Sophia has to say about crochet:
DOROTHY: Why do you find ways to amuse yourself at my expense?
SOPHIA: Because we don’t have cable and I can’t crochet.
You can make any of these squares into an afghan, and give it to a friend at a party with a card attached that says, “Thank you for being a friend!” (Wink.)
