Size

The purse is 21 cm by 13 cm / 8.25” by 5”.

Gauge

Gauge is not important for this pattern. As an indication, my gauge is 23 st by 24 rows in stitch pattern (repeats of Row 3 below) for a 10 cm by 10 cm / 4” by 4” square.

Abbreviations & Instructions

This pattern follows US notations

  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • sc = single crochet
  • skip = miss stitch

Special stitches and Techniques

  • Bobble stitch (find a detailed tutorial with video here):
    • Yarn over, insert hook into stitch and pull up a loop. Yarn over, pull through two loops. It’ll look like half of a double crochet.
    • Repeat in the same stitch/space until you have a total of 6 loops on your hook.
    • Yarn over, pull through all loops then secure the stitch with a ch 1.
  • Magic ring, aka magic circle for the wrist wrap. If you’re not familiar with this technique, this detailed photo and video tutorial should help you.

The final number of stitches is indicated at the end of the round between < >.

The turning ch 1 doesn’t count as stitches throughout the pattern.

Stitches above a ch-1 are worked in the ch-1 space.

The pattern is written in crochet shorthand.  For example:

  • “sc 1” means to single crochet in the next stitch,
  • “sc 2” means to single crochet in each of the next 2 stitches,
  • and “2 sc” means to single crochet twice in the next st.
