Embrace your Femininity through Coquette Aesthetic with 25 Crochet Patterns

Embrace your Femininity through Coquette Aesthetic with 25 Crochet Patterns

You really can’t go far these days on social media without seeing one this aesthetic everywhere, and that is Coquette. What is Coquette? 🎀💝 

Or I love how it explains coquette on vocabulary.com it says ..."it is borrowed into English from French in the mid 17th century. It’s the feminine diminutive form of coq, which means “cock, a male bird” so coquette refers to a little female bird. It’s also the name of a colorful hummingbird found in Latin America. So imagine a coquette as a flamboyant bird flirting about and teasing the male birds."

Coquette is a flirty, soft, hyper feminine style which references the Regency Era. It’s romantic and nostalgic, Lana Del Rey is a big icon of this aesthetic and I would even say that Bridgerton has a lot of impact in popularizing this aesthetic. 

Lots of lace, silk, feminine colors, and soft textiles are embraced and because of that crochet is the perfect art form to embrace this aesthetic.

Make something cutesy like this heart sleep mask by Bella Coco. The completed size is 23 cm by 9 cm. To make it you just need to know how to chain, single crochet and single crochet 2 together in US terms but the pattern is in UK terms.

To create it you work the mask vertically creating that heart design, and the chain 1 at the beginning of each row does not count as a stitch. It is made of two panels which helps with making sure that no light is let in. And there is also a right hand and left handed video tutorial which is very helpful for all of my left handed crochet friends out there.

Keep you hands warm, but remain cute with some fingerless gloves like these Delilah fingerless gloves by AzorasShop.

You can also create a sweater that celebrates a bow like the Big Bow Cardigan by KnitsnKnots. This pattern includes sizes XS to 5XL. It’s mainly created by working the moss stitch where you single crochet and chain 1 and each row is alternated so the single crochet is in the chain 1 space of the previous row.

To make it you create two separate back pieces that are then joined to create the back cut-out. Then work the rest of the back panel in back and forth rows until you reach the desired length. The front sweater is worked into two symmetrical sections to make the v neck that are then joined at the base of the v neck. Then seam the sides and work the sleeves from the bottom up joined in rounds then seam to the body and the bow is worked last and sewn across the cut out on the lower back.
