Pattern for block only is available for free on my blog.

Downloadable pdf version can be purchased from my Ravelry Store and has a bonus section with a suggested project of a small lined pencil case/clutch bag, including instructions for a beginner friendly, minimal equipment method for lining and adding a zip fastener to a simple two panel yarncraft bag.

This 4” square block (in DK) is a fun make for crocheters, featuring some interesting stitches. It could be incorporated into a traditional blanket as a repeated motif or along with other patterned and plain blocks as a sampler blanket. It could also feature in accessories, homewares or garments.

Coupe was inspired by cut glass vintage coupes (wide saucer shaped glasses) filled with bubbly champagne. It was designed for Granny Square Day 2023
