The square peg problem asks to prove that every continuous Jordan curve in the plane contains four points that form the vertices of a square. Inspired by Hugelmeyer's approach for smooth Jordan curves, we give a topological proof for (locally) 1-Lipschitz functions using Möbius bands and quite elementary 4-dimensional topology. This is joint work (in progress) with Peter Feller.
