Purses are like friends, you can never have too many !

This PDF crochet pattern will guide you to crochet a Yin Yang purse as shown in pictures, made using sport weight mercerized cotton yarn (acrylic or wool will be suitable too) and crochet hook D (3 mm).

SMC Catania Solids was used to create the purse in the pictures. Finished size will be approx. 14.5” x 14.5” (37 x 37 cm). The back and front side are identical. A metal curb chain with crocheted sides will be used to create a sturdy strap.

The Yin - Yang circle center of the purse is worked in continuous rounds (tapestry technique); do not fasten off, join or turn unless otherwise instructed. Place a stitch marker at the end of each round and move it up as you go along, while working the Yin - Yang circle. The border around the circle is worked in rows.
