The Mitred Granny Bag

I just love those mitred granny squares! This Mitred Granny bag was calling out to me to be made! Remember when I made the Mitred Granny Jumper? You can find it here.

It was on Pinterest that I first saw a photo of a Mitred Granny square and it was love at first sight. I just had to do something with this quirky design. It’s such a fun alternative for the good old traditional version I reckon and it suits knot so square perfectly!

The Mitred Granny bag

The Mitred Granny bags consists of two panels and for each of them you’ll make four mitred granny squares. You’ll join the two panels and then you’ll make the handle. I love this simple and robust handle. It’s very convenient to hang it on the steering wheel of my bike.

Yarn selection: Scheepjes Cahlista

I love using cotton for my bags as it doesn’t stretch and is 100% biodegradable.

I used Scheepjes Cahlista (50g/85m). Cahlista means exceptionally pretty and that’s what this yarn is. It’s available in 109 different colours! I love the colours I picked. The perfect autumn colours if you ask me! (But I use autumn colours all year round so that maybe doesn’t count.)

I only used small amounts of yarn for each square so it might just be a prefect stash buster for you. This is a list of the total amount I used for the bag:

  • A: 505 Linen 110g
  • B: 388 Rust 25g
  • C: 393 Charcoal 12g
  • D: 249 Saffran 32g
  • E: 383 Ginger Gold 17g

Beginner friendly crochet pattern

This bag works up pretty fast and is beginner friendly. The printable PDF contains helpful photos and a chart. You’ll get two PDF’s, one in US terms and the other in Dutch terms.

Use your cotton scraps and you’ll have your own Mitred Granny bag in no-time.

Please follow me on Instagram and share a photo of your wips and work using #mitredgrannybag and #knotsosquare That would make me super happy!
