Granny Squares? Not when they are this cute! With granny squares being seamed together to create everything from tops and tanks to tights and skirts, they are quickly losing that lame old 1970s reputation. Cute Girl Squares are a much more appropriate name for them! This slightly oversized tank with built in belt helps you bring these fun to crochet squares into your everyday wardrobe, and no one will be calling you Granny! Pick one color or go a little bolder with three color motif.
