Granny Square Clutch

Pattern by: Kaitlyn

Sorry I haven’t been posting any patterns for awhile… I was just trying to come up with a great pattern for you! I was looking at a great blog called Stitch of Love, and I saw a picture of a little granny square pouch that the owner of the blog had made. So I decided to write my own pattern to offer to you! This clutch is 5 inches square with a buttoned flap, for secure storage for those little items you may have! I hope you enjoy making my granny square clutch pattern!


  • size US H/8 or 5mm crochet hook
  • worsted weight yarn in two or more different colors
  • scissors
  • yarn needle
  • a button

Note: the ch 2 at the beginning of each row counts as 1 st

Let’s get started…

  1. make two granny squares that are 5″ (I used the Not So Square Granny Square pattern on this page from BobWilson123)
  2. with WS of both squares together, sew 3 of the edges together
  3. fasten off and weave in ends
  4. join yarn at the open end of the clutch (only on one square- do not join the squares together), ch 2, hdc in 18 sts across the row (18 sts should go all the way across the top of the square- add or subtract sts by 2 if the flap needs to be wider or less wide)
  5. ch 2, turn, hdc in each st across the row
  6. repeat step 5 until the flap is 2 inches long
  7. ch 2, turn, hdc across  8 sts (or 1 less than half of the amount of sts that are in your row), ch 1 (or more/less, according to the size of your button), skip 2 sts, hdc across the rest of the row
  8. ch 2, turn, hdc across 16 sts (or 2 less than the amount of sts that are in your row), work 1 (or the amount of ch) hdc in the ch space, hdc across the rest of the row
  9. fasten off and weave in ends
  10. sew the button in place according to where the buttonhole is

If you have any questions concerning this pattern, please leave a comment below, and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. Have fun crocheting! Here’s a few pictures of one of the  clutches I made:
