ch (chain), sl st (slip stitch), sc (single crochet), BPsc (back post single crochet), hdc (half double crochet), dc (double crochet), tr (treble crochet).

This pattern includes:

If you are not familiar with crochet charts, you can follow step-by-step-pictures and written instructions, given under each image.
Take a look at charts now and then and you might become a chart guru after all :)

Crochet hook:
- 1.8 mm.

Recommended materials:
Recommended materials:

  • About 3 oz/85 g of natural (or other color) cotton thread size 10; shown here Aunt Lidia’s classic 10 crochet thread.
  • DMC Pearl Cotton Thread size 5 (27 yds/25 m skein) in Lt Green, 224 Very Lt Shell Pink (1 skein each), 223 Lt Shell Pink (2 skeins) colors.
  • About 22’’/56 cm of matching sari/brocade fabric for lining.
  • About 22’’/56 cm of quilted fabric for lining.
  • 6 ft/1.8 m of 3/16’’/4.5 mm cord for handles.
  • Tapestry needle.
  • Matching yarn color extra-wide double folded bias tape (will be visible).
  • 20 mm 4 wooden round beads (e. g. Craftwood at Jo-Anne).
  • Matching yarn color (and another one matching quilted lining color if different) sewing thread.

Purse size:
- doily/purse is about 20’’/51 cm in diameter (13.6 rounds = 4’’).

- doily size would differ from one crocheter to another, so it’s better to make a doily first, measure it and buy fabric for lining after.

My biggest gratitude for your interest in my pattern!
