Wooden Handled Crochet Purse Free Pattern

If you’re looking for a good purse that will make a statement then you definitely want to check out my wooden handled crochet purse free pattern. I chose the handles first, because they are really bold and beautiful. Then I designed the rest of the crochet purse to work with those handles. Therefore, the handles stay the star of the show, even though the crochet is important as well. This makes a great year-round accessory but is particularly perfect for a summer look.

How to Crochet Griddle Stitch

The Wooden Handled Crochet Purse Free Pattern uses griddle stitch. It’s a very simple stitch pattern. However, it creates terrific texture. Essentially, you’ll alternate single crochet and double crochet stitches across an entire round. Then on the next round, you’ll alternate double crochet and single crochet stitches. In other words, you’ll work single crochets into your double crochets from the round below. And of course you’ll work double crochets into your single crochets. You’ll repeat this round upon round. The result is an easy-to-make crochet purse with great texture.

Note that you might also see this same pattern called crochet seed stitch, moss stitch, or granite stitch. There are established names for these stitch patterns so just make sure that you always follow the directions in the pattern given to get the correct texture that the designer intends.

Striped Crochet Purse Pattern, With or Without Lining

When working the Wooden Handled Crochet Purse Free Pattern, you’ll use four colors of yarn to create stripes of different widths. This is a great scrapbusting project. You don’t need large amounts of any of the yarn colors. Of course, you could use a solid color, a self-striping yarn, or more/fewer colors for this purse pattern instead. However, if you want it to look as close to the original pattern as possible then stick with four colors. Follow the instructions in the pattern for color placement.
