Market Coin Purse

Hey Friends! 


Got a real cute, quick little pattern for you this week! It's a taste of summer to come. I love the change of seasons, and unfortunately here we're still waiting for signs of spring. We keep bracing for more snow and winter never seems to end. I usually transition to creating more useful accessories, and home goods in spring time and summer. I tend to focus less on fashion and more on use.


Here for you is a sweet little goody. I've been using my adorable Bitty Berries Coin Purse for months and months now, and it still looks amazing. It could use a good turn through the washer though. One thing I love about acrylic yarn is its ability to be machine washed and dried. I routinely wash my kids' boot cuffs and mittens throughout fall and winter. The always come out looking spectacular. I wash my hanging towels too.




Now is the time for a good spring cleaning. And when you're cleaning out that purse, messenger bag or backpack, next time you need a small pouch for something special, reach for this! When you make it yourself, you ensure a perfect match every time.

Let's get started!

Market Coin Purse


Hook: G6/4mm Hook
Yarn: 4 medium/worsted weight (I Love This Yarn Metallic in Coral Sparkle)
Gauge: 4 stitch repeats = apx. 2”
Difficulty: easy
Materials: 1” button, tapestry needle
Finished Size: 3.5” wide, 2.5” tall

Special Stitches:
(sc, hdc)- make both a sc and a hdc together in the same st, then skip the next stitch. When working subsequent rows, be sure to work in the sc sts of previous row.
Sc2tog- single crochet two together, a sc decrease stitch.
Hdc2tog- half double crochet two together, a hdc decrease stitch.




Purse:

Chain 13
Row 1: sc in second ch from hook, and in each ch across, ch 1, turn. (12 sts)
Row 2: sk first st, (sc,hdc) in next st, *sk next st, (sc,hdc) in next st*, repeat ** across, ch 1, turn. (6 repeats/12 sts)
Rows 3-18: repeat row 2.
Row 19: sc2tog, *sk next st, (sc,hdc)*, repeat ** four times, sc2tog in last two sts, ch 1, turn (5 repeats/10 sts)
Row 20: sc2tog, *(sc,hdc), sk next st*, repeat ** three times, hdc2tog in last two sts, ch 1, turn (4 repeats/8 sts)
Row 21: sc2tog, (sc,hdc), sk next st, (sc,hdc), sk next st, hdc2tog, ch 1, turn. (2 repeats/6 sts)
Row 22: sc2tog, ch 2, sk 2 sts, sc2tog (buttonhole made), do not break yarn.



Finishing:

Pivot work, keep right side facing, ch 1, sc evenly around entire edge of purse as follows:
Make one sc per row down raw edge, sc in each st along bottom, and make 1 sc per row up other raw edge, make 2 sc in buttonhole ch-sp. Join the round when complete. Fasten off.
Fold up bottom half of purse and line up stitches in order to slip stitch along both sides. Insert your hook through both layers and draw up a loop where you can sl st purse closed by working from bottom of purse up, sl st across opening (for both decorative and structural purposes), and sl st through both layers back down other side.




Note: Which side you start on will depend on whether you are right or left handed. With front of purse facing, I, a left hander worked this step from left to right, I assume for a right hander the process would be reversed.

Weave in all ends and sew button securely to center front of purse.
