I originally created this pattern for a Swedish Mystery Crochet-Along/ CAL.

Lined, with zipper closure and optional strap/handle, the Sergel Clutch is the perfect party accessory; however, it is equally suited as a practical case for your pens, crochet hooks or knitting needles. This pattern includes lots of photos, helpful tips and explanations to help even a relative beginner get to grips with tapestry crochet – as well as how to line and add a zipper.

About the name: In my home town, the Swedish capital of Stockholm, there is this square named after an 18th century sculptor and artist called Sergel. It is a distinctly inhuman and uncosy place, sprung from the relentless demolition and overzealous modernising of the1960s. Few seem to even notice the stunning black-and-white geometric paving as they rush across the square, eager to get out of there as soon as possible.
