Until now, the idea of granny squares has existed mostly in the realm of comfy afghans and unfortunate pantsuits. Well, we’re about to change all that. It’s time to breath new life into a folksy classic with Go-Go Granny, a sweater dress that would surely put the twinkle back in your saucy old grandma’s eyes. Sizing this baby is as simple as adding and subtracting squares, so adjusting the fit and length is a breeze. Lucky for us, yarn comes in a dizzying array of colors, so the possibilities are endless. From eye-piercing Technicolor to a more subdued tone-on-tone and everywhere in between. No two granny squares on our version share the same color combination, so the sky’s the limit!
