Round Crochet Purse.

This is a beginner crochet pattern - the Round Crochet Purse is very easy to make (it looks much more difficult then it really is) and you can whip it up really fast. It can be an evening purse for you or a bag for a girl - depending on colors and decoration. When the crochet purse is ready you can decide how to decorate it - you can leave it as it is or add a flower (flowers) to it. For the girl you can also add applique - a duck, a snowflake, a butterfly on a flower... there are so many combinations. :)

The ready crochet bag is approximately 7 in (18 cm) in diameter if you use recommended crochet hook and yarn.

Recommended weight yarn: Medium to worsted weight (weight category #4) I used Red Heart Super Saver in Orchid, Purple and Light Purple.

Recommended crochet hook size: I 9 (5.5 mm) to J 10 (6.00 mm)

Abbreviations and stitches used:

CH - chain, SC - single crochet, HDC - half double crochet, DC - double crochet, TC - treble crochet.

The gauge: 13 SC in 4'' (10 cm); 14 rows in 4'' (10 cm).


Note:

SC 2 (the # of stitches is AFTER the stitch's abbreviation) means: make two single crochet stitches in two stitches of the previous row.

2SC (the # of stitches is BEFORE the stitch's abbreviation) means: make two single crochet stitches in one stitch (increase).

For example, [SC 2, 2SC] means: make a SC in the first stitch, then another SC in the second stitch, and then make 2 SC together in the third stitch (an increase).


How to make the Round Crochet Purse: make 2 flat identical circles, sew them together leaving an opening (approximately 1/4 of the circle), make a handle. This beginner crochet pattern is very simple! :)

Do not make a slip stitch at the end of each row and do not make a CH stitch at the beginning of each row, work in spirals instead - you will have no seam. Attach the stitch marker to the end of the first or the second row to indicate it and move the stitch marker up as the work progresses.

CH 3

Join in a ring with a slip stitch

Row #1: SC 6 in a ring, attach a stitch marker to the lats stitch

Row #2: 2SC in each stitch for all 6 stitches. The total will be 12 stitches after completing of this row.


Row #3: [SC, 2 SC], repeat [ ] 6 times around the row. This means: make a SC (in the first stitch of the row), then make 2SC in the next following stitch (the second stitch of the row), then make another SC in the next following stitch (the third stitch of the row), 2SC in the fourth stitch of the row and so on for 4 more times. The total = 18 stitches after the completing of this row.

Row #4: [SC 2, 2 SC] Repeat [ ] 6 times around the row. This means: make a SC in the first stitch of the row, make a SC in the second stitch of the row, make two SCs in the third stitch of the row and repeat this pattern 5 more times. The total = 24 stitches after completing of this row.

Row #5: [SC 3, 2 SC] Repeat [ ] 6 times around the row. Total = 30 stitches after completing of this row.

Row #6: [SC 4, 2 SC] Repeat [ ] 6 tomes around the row. Total = 36 stitches after completing of this row.

Row #7: [SC 5, 2 SC] Repeat [ ] 6 times around the row. Total = 42 stitches after completing this row.

Row #8: [SC 6, 2 SC] Repeat [ ] 6 times around the row. Total = 48 stitches after completing this row.

Row #9: [SC 7, 2 SC] Repeat [ ] 6 times around the row. Total = 54 stitches after completing this row.

The circle should be flat. If the circle is ruffled or looks like a bowl - this means you've made more stitches in a row or less stitches in a row then stated in the pattern - always check the number of stitches after completing each row. 



The ready flat circle.

Make the second circle exactly as the first one.

Place both circles together and make a row: CH 1 and SC in each SC for 38 stitches (the rest will be the opening), slip stitch.

Turn, make a row of "fringe" around: [CH 3, slip stitch in the second stitch (skip one)]. Repeat [ ] around the row until the opening, slip stitch.

Continue slip stitches around the edge of the opening.

The last slip stitch around the opening should be where both circles join. From this point start the handle.

The handle: make a chain (how long you want to make the handle). P.S. I made it long - 36 in (91.5 cm).

When the chain is long enough for the handle, make a slip stitch at the opposite end of the bag's opening.

Make slip stitches along the handle in the back direction.

The ready purse :)

The almost ready round crochet purse: you can leave it as it is or ass a crochet flower :)

Optionally: you can add snap fasteners ti the both sides of the opening (from the inside).
