Not Your Granny’s Granny Square Clutch

not your granny's granny square clutch

This is my first clutch pattern, and I’m very pleased with it!  It’s made up of 4 of my flower stitch sampler granny squares stitched together with a fabric lining and a 7″ zipper sewn together by sewing machine.

I wrote up the pattern for this and it is free (pattern available here for download as a PDF)!  Here are the specifications:

Finished size: 4″ (10cm) tall, 7.5″ (19cm) wide (can fit a checkbook or an iPhone 6 in a case)


  • US G/6 hook
  • 50g (92 yds) of Caron Simply Soft in Peach 9737 (or any other worsted weight yarn)
  • Tapestry needle
  • Measuring tape
  • Fabric scissors/rotary cutter w/ cutting mat & straight-edge
  • Iron & ironing board
  • Sewing pins
  • Fabric for lining (about 10″x10″, or 25×25 cm)
  • 7″ (18 cm) Coats All Purpose Zipper in 57 Nile Green
  • Sewing needle or sewing machine & thread to match yarn

Gauge: Each square should be slightly over 3.5″ (about 9 cm) after being stretched to open up the lacy pattern

Special crochet stitches (using US terms!):

  • 2-dc cluster
  • Puff stitch
  • Popcorn stitch

To be honest I think this would look even better in a less shiny yarn that shows the texture a little better, but I’m very happy with this (the colors especially!).
