Pattern Description:

I'm a knit and crochet teacher, and this is a simple little design I came up with for my students, who wanted to explore granny squares, without making a granny square afghan. This is just one of several designs I worked on for them, to show them the power, the simplicity, and the beauty that is granny squares!

It features the humble granny square, and has a drawstring closure. This bag can be lined (directions for lining are not included) and used as a clutch, or used as is as a fun wristlet. I've been using it to store my "unmentionables" in my larger work bag (which gets searched every night as I leave). If you match my gauge, it also fits a CD perfectly, to use as a gift bag.

Many thanks to my testers, pandastamper, blacky67, ritha, shyamanivas, and wilmaelee!

Feel free to make as many of these as you like for local craft fairs/auctions/raffles/bazaars, but please do not sell finished items online. If making for charity, please let me know the name of the charity & include my contact info with the item ( / If you have any questions or comments or just want to join like-minded souls, please join my Ravelry group at Thanks!


1st round measures 1.75" across, 4 rows=2.5". Exact gauge doesn't matter


  • assorted scraps of worsted weight yarn
  • size I (5.5 mm) crochet hook
