There seems to be a resurgence of the ubiquitous 70s crocheted granny square items lately! I’ve notice several vintage hand-crocheted granny jackets being bid up to hundreds of dollars on eBay. Here is a great crochet pattern from 1973 for a “Out-of-the-Blue” Jacket. Multicolored squares edged in blue make a charming night-or-day cover up. Triangular grannies shape neck and shoulders, gussets ease underarms and hips. In knitting worsted.
Granny squares are pretty foolproof to make, and are portable. A fun project to make on the go!
