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”
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.
