Textured Granny Square Crochet Purse Free Pattern

One of the best things about crochet is that you can take a classic design and reinvent it into something new. That’s what I did with this textured granny square crochet purse free pattern. You’ll combine four granny squares to make one panel. Then you’ll repeat that on the other side. Using visible seams and long double crochet stitches, you’ll create rich texture. The result is a good-sized handbag with that you can use in a variety of different settings.

Granny Squares Are Great for Beginners

This granny square crochet purse pattern is an easy pattern for beginners to tackle. The granny square is one of the first motifs that beginners often learn. Of course, you might have started off crocheting in rows. But as soon as you feel ready to crochet in the round granny squares are a go-to choice. And I’ve written this pattern with extra detailed instructions to make every step easy along the way.

This variation on the classic granny square uses the long double crochet for extra texture and visual appeal. If you can double crochet then you can long double crochet. Don’t stress about it. All of the information that you need is right there in the pattern. And all of the other (few) stitches are simple: slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet. You’ve got this. It’s easy to make a really pretty design with just some basic crochet knowledge. This purse demonstrates that so well.

Simple Panels Make The Granny Square Crochet Purse Roomier

You’ll make two panels of four granny squares each to create the body of the crochet purse. However, if you just seamed those two panels together, then you’d have a slim purse. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with that. But if you’re looking for a tote that can carry a wide range of items, then you’ll want to make it roomier. That’s why you’ll add side panels and a bottom strip to the body of this granny square crochet purse.

These are made as simple single crochet rectangles. Therefore, they’re easy to craft. Moreover, they’re dense which keeps all of your purse’s items well-contained. Although you will add lining to this purse, the single crochet panels definitely add to the durability of the design.

Finishing Touches

There are a few key finishing touches that turn this crochet purse into a complete accessory:

  • Seaming on the outside to create extra texture. Yes, you want visible seams on this one. It’s part of the design.
  • Handles. There are so many great purse handles to choose from. Shop around and find something you love.
  • Lining. Learn how to line this crochet purse so that you have a durable accessory to take anywhere you wish to go.
