*This listing is for an instant download pattern, and not a finished object*
A crochet pattern for a gorgeously textured and fun crochet clutch bag. Worked in rows of UK double crochet (US single crochet) and loop stitch in a single panel, then crocheted or sewn to construct the bag. The technique of tapestry crochet allows all yarns to be carried inside the work, meaning the inside of the bag is smooth inside with no floats.
Made using a 5mm hook and Aran weight yarn, the clutch could also be made using chunky or super chunky yarn if you wanted to supersize your creation!
Never tried tapestry crochet or loop stitch before? A detailed picture tutorial is given for tapestry crochet technique, loop stitch and extended loop stitch, to help you along the way!
UK terms with US translations, this pattern uses a graph. Included in the pattern: Materials List, Finished Size, Gauge, Abbreviations (with US translations), Pattern Notes, Tapestry Crochet Tutorial, Loop Stitch Tutorial, How to change colour in both stitches, The Pattern as a graph, Making up instructions
