Little Purse


Crocheted Purse:

Hook Size ‘E’3.5 mm Crochet lite hook

Yes, I am using a very small hook for the yarn. I want the rows to be tight.

Yarn: Red Heart Worsted weight  “Monet

Chain 21

Row 1: 20 sc at the end of the row, do 20 sc in the starting chain again. Connect with a slst.

Row 2: 40 sc in the round, connect with a slst

Row 3: 40 sc, connect with a  slst

Row 4: front post single crochet, 40 stitches

Row 5: Ch 2, PM (Place Marker) Do 39 front post double crochets, connect with a slst

Repeat Row5 for depth you want of the Purse… I went for the size of my Droid 4 phone

Do one row of front post single crochet

For the flap:

Turn at the end of the last row,

1: Slip stitch 20 stitches through the back loop only

Be sure to count your slip stitches every row, or you might have to use language unbecoming a crocheter.

When the flap is over 1.2 way down the side of the purse:

slip stitch 8, ch 4 (skip 4 stitches), slip stitch 8

slip stitch 5 more rows through the back loop

Weave in your ends and stitch on a button of your choice.

If you want to add a strap, you can easily either knit or crochet an i-cord strap and attach it.
