When I first saw this image, I had to look twice. I couldn't believe my eyes! Clint Eastwood in a crocheted vest with a sheer shirt. Wow!
When I was hiring models for photo shoots, I remember a few models that later rose to what was their true passion whether it was acting or directing. Everyone had to begin somewhere and modelling paid the bills and put you out there.
Granny squares have been around a long time as shown in the picture above. The idea of working on small pieces is appealing, however what discouraged some crocheters was the joining and finishing.
That is also true about knitting and sewing for that matter. You can have the loveliest crocheted piece but the finishing can ruin the whole garment.
Joining and finishing tutorials have been included, so please have a look to see how to make a great garment.
More recently, Paul Smith and Christopher Kane attempted to modernize crochet granny squares. Christopher Kane was more successful in that he chose a neutral palette for his allover design. Too many colours would have been overwhelming.
