Step-By-Step Guide to Creating the Stunning Coupe Granny Square: Free Crochet Pattern (US)


Coupe Granny Square is a lace crochet square in yellow and white with varied stitches worked from centre out
Coupe Granny Square

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


I had a lovely response to it and I was so pleased that I decided I should make this pattern available like my other granny square free crochet patterns on my website in both UK and US terminology so as many people as possible can make it. This 4” square block is a fun make for crocheters, featuring some interesting stitches. It could be incorporated into a blanket with other squares.


If you don't like reading patterns directly from a website, a printable pdf pattern download is available to purchase on Ravelry or on Etsy. This also contains detailed instructions with video links for making a small lined pencil case or clutch bag from four of the squares


This page shows the US terminology version. If you prefer to work in UK terminology then you'll want to go to this page instead.

Pattern Notes

The square is worked in concentric rounds from the RS. Unless otherwise stated, starting chains do count as a stitch. When directed to attach the next colour, makers can choose whether to fasten off previous colour or to place the live loop from the hook on a lockable stitch marker/waste yarn and work sufficient chains at the rear to rejoin it next time it is used. Sample is made using the second technique (apart from fastening off C1 after Round 4) however the first technique might be preferable in a project that will be seen from both sides. R4’s stitch count has potential to cause confusion so is deliberately omitted.

 

Method

This pattern uses UK terminology and a US terminology version is also available (see top). Please be sure you are using a copy in your preferred terminology. I recommend that you read through the pattern before starting.

Make it your own

This pattern should work well with other types of yarn that match the tension, although of course this can produce a different type of fabric, e.g. stiffer/drapier.

Make a larger or smaller version with different weights of yarn.

The square can also look good in a single colour or with each round in a different shade.
