Sweet and Simple Clutch


This is a super easy clutch, it works up pretty fast. A great instant gratification project! You can use 2 colors (like I did) or just do the whole purse one single color, whatever you prefer. Enjoy! :)

Sweet and Simple Clutch

Ravelry page for this clutch - add it to your library! 

G hook
Worsted weight yarn, not sure how much I used but it wasnt much..maybe about 100 yards

st = stitch
sts = stitches
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet

ch 37, hdc in the 3rd ch from the hook and in ea ch ch st across (ch 2 counts as hdc, 36 hdc)

ch 2 (counts as hdc), sc in next st (not the very first st) and in each st across, the very last st will be into the 2nd ch of the previous row beginning ch 2  (36 hdc)

repeat the last row until piece measures about 9 inches

switch to "flap" color... (you don't have to use 2 colors but I think the contrast makes the design pop)

ch 1, sc in very first st and each st across (36 sc)

ch1, sc in first st and in next st,  *ch 3 skip 2 sts and sc in the next st, ch 6 skip 4 sts and sc in the next st, ch 3 skip 2 sts and sc in the next st *repeat 3 times sc in the last st

ch 2, hdc in next st (not very first st), ch 1 and sc into the ch-3 space, * work 9 dc into the ch-6 space, sc into the ch-3 space, ch 3 and then sc into the next ch-3 space *repeat 2 times, work 9 dc into the ch-6 space, sc into the ch-3 space, hdc in the last 2 sts

ch 1, sc in the first st and in next st, * ch 5 and count over to the 4th dc (in the set of 9) and sc into the top of that 4th dc, sc into the top of the next 2 dc, ch 5 and work 2 sc into the ch-3 space *repeat 2 times, ch 5 and count over to the 4th dc (in the set of 9) and sc into the top of that 4th dc, sc into the top of the next 2 dc, ch 5 and skip over 4 sts and sc in the next st, sc in the last st

ch 3, dc in the next st (not the very first st), ch 3 and sc into the ch-5 space, * ch 3 and skip over the next st(1st sc) sc into the 2nd sc(in the set of 3), ch 3 and sc into the ch-5 space, ch 6 and sc into the next ch-5 space *repeat 2 times,  ch 3 and skip over the next st(1st sc) sc into the 2nd sc(in the set of 3), ch 3 and sc into the ch-5 space, ch 3 and dc in the next st, dc in the last st

ch 3 , dc in next st (not the very first st), work 4 dc into the ch-3 space, * sc into the next ch-3 space, ch 3 and sc into the next ch-3 space, work 9 dc into the ch-6 space *repeat 2 times(if you are using a large button on the 2nd time you work this you want to swap the ch 3 for a ch 4, if you are using a very small button than you want to swap it for a ch 2) , sc into the next ch-3 space, ch 3 and sc into the next ch-3 space, work 4 dc into the last ch-3 space, dc in the last 2 sts

Attach the sides together with whatever method you prefer, I simply whip stitched the sides and then flipped it inside out to hide the seams. When you attach the sides you want to leave one row untouched, basically leave one row that is not stitches together.

Weave in the ends and attach the button
