A simple little crocheted purse made in one piece– starting from the bottom up, in a spiral. The flap is then worked flat without breaking off the yarn and includes a button loop.

Pattern is written in US crochet terminology and includes photos and mini tutorials for some of the techniques involved.

Specific gauge is not required, however you are looking to achieve a relatively dense and firm fabric to attain the correct structure for the purse.

Aran – approx. 4”/10cm tall & 4.5”/11cm wide
Chunky – approx. 5”/7.5cm tall & 6”/15cm wide
