• Finished measurements are as follows:
o Oval Base: 12 ¾” L x 6 ¾” W
o Purse Body: 32” Circumference, 10 ¼” Height
• This purse is made from the base up. It is begun with an oval base made by crocheting on both sides of a foundation CH and continuing in the round. Once the base is completed, the bag is made by SC in BLO in the round for the remainder of the purse body.
• Each round of the base is finished by joining to the first SC of the round. I recommend using the invisible slip stitch join and standing/chainless starting stitch. When the base is completed, a stitch marker is used to mark the beginning and end of each round, and the remainder of the purse is made by working continuously in the round.
• If you choose to join traditionally, beginning CH stitches do not count as a stitch.
• There are multiple color changes in this project. You may choose to carry the yarn, but I found that carrying the yarn warped the shape of the pineapple design somewhat. I chose to cut my yarn at each color change. This method will create several ends to weave in at the end, but gives a cleaner overall appearance. The method chosen is a personal preference and entirely up to the discretion of the maker!
