Warning: This pattern has not been tested. I've read it several times to double check it. If you find any part confusing please let me know and I will fix it. :hook



Purse measures 7” across bottom and 41/2” high.


Materials:

Purse handle 6” wide (your handle doesn’t necessarily have to be 6”, but keep in mind that the width of your handle will be the width of the purse)

Approx. 3.5 oz of worsted weight cotton (I used about 1 ½ skeins of Peaches N’ Cream) [color A]

Small amount of white worsted weight [color B]

Small amount of contrasting color for center of flower [color C]

G Hook



Side (make 2)



With Color A

Ch 4, join w/ sl st to form ring

Round 1—Ch3, 11dc in ring, join w/ sl st to first ch-3 st, ch3 (12dc)

Round 2—dc in same st as joining (2dc in next st) around, join w/ sl st to first ch-3 st, ch3 (24dc)

Round 3—2dc in next st (dc in next st, 2dc in next st) around, join w/ sl st to first ch-3 st, ch3 (36dc)

Round 4—dc in next st, 2dc in next st (dc in each of next 2 sts, 2dc in next st) around, join w/ sl st to first ch-3 st, ch3 (48dc)

With Color C

Ch 4, join w/ sl st to form ring

Round 1—Ch3, 9dc in ring,[switching to Color B in last stitch] join w/ sl st to first ch-3 st (10dc)

Round 2—(Ch11, tr in 5th ch from hook and in next 6 chs, sk next st on Round 1, sl st in next st) around. Finish off (5 petals)



Sew flowers to side pieces of purse. Position flower’s top petal directly at first ch-3 st of Round 5 on side piece.



Body



With Color A

Ch 59

Row 1—sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, ch1, turn (58sc)

Row 2—sc in each st across, ch1, turn

Repeat Round 2 until piece measures 6” tall or the width of your handle. Do not finish off.



Note: If you are wanting to crochet a closure (Example: chain loops) do so on Joining Round at the side of the body piece



Joining Round--*With WS of side piece facing you, insert hook in next st of body piece and also in the last st of Round 5 on side piece, yo, pull up loop, yo, pull thru both loops on hook, continue single crocheting pieces together for the next 57 sts, ch1, sc evenly across side of body piece (purse opening), ch 1* With 2nd side piece repeat from * to* once more, join w/ sl st to first st of joining round. Finish off.

Ooooh, that is so adorable. I'm making one! I have a single bamboo purse handle that I couldn't find a pattern it would work for. It looks like I could use it for this if it's wide enough. Did you use a single strand or double strand of yarn?

Battlemaiden....I used one strand for the purse. You can use two strands, but if you do you may have to do modifications to the flower since this will make the overall size of the purse bigger.
