This is a luxurious clutch bag, designed for special occasions. The yarn I used is durable enough for accessories, but has a beautiful sheen, thanks to the silk content. If you have a copy of my book “200 More Crochet Stitches”, you’ll find a chart and helpful step by step photos for the Embossed Shells stitch on page 34. The lining requires some basic sewing skills. The original pattern for this bag appeared in Issue 107 of Inside Crochet Magazine.
