2 - 50g balls of 4 ply knitting worsted.
Hook - 4.50mm
1 - Button (1" diameter) or a strip of Velcro.
My notes, are in blue.
NOTE: I made this purse in black, but the picture would not come out very well. You couldn't see the stitches nor where the flap ended. So I changed the settings on my camera and software program to reverse the color.
Ch 31 to begin
RND 1 - (Note: You will be crocheting down the chain and then you will turn and crochet down the other side of the chain, through the back loops of the chain stitches. ) 1 sc in third ch from hook, 1 sc in next 26 chs, 4 sc in last ch ( Note: If you find that making 4 sc in the last chain loosens the chain, you could do 2 sc in the last chain, then pull tail end up towards you, then make 2 sc in the same ch. This will help tighten it up some.)
Now you crochet up the back side of the chain 1 sc in each back of ch loops, 2 sc in last back of ch loop, ss to join to the starting ch (the loop before the first sc), ch 1, turn.
RND 2 - 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next 29 sc, 2 sc in next 2 sc, 1 sc in next 29 sc, 2 sc in last st, ss to join to first sc, ch 1, turn. (66 sc)
RND 3 - 1 sc in each 66 sc, ss to join, ch 1, turn.
RND 4 to 24 - Same as Row 3.
RND 25 - (Flap) ss in first sc, ss in next sc then ch 1 and 1 sc in the same sc, 1 sc in next 30 sc, ch 1, turn. (31 sc)
RND 26 - 1 sc in next 31 sc, ch 1, turn.
RND 27 to 42 - Same as Row 26.
RND 43 - 1 sc in next 14 sc, ch 3, skip next 3 sc (this is for the button hole. If you are using a velcro strip instead of a button, do this row the same as Row 26.) 1 sc in next 14 sc, ch 1, turn.
RND 44 - 1 sc in first sc, 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 11 sc, 1 sc in each of next 3 chs, 1 sc in next 11 sc, 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next sc, ch 1, turn. (29 sc)
RND 45 - 1 sc in first sc, 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 23 sc, 2 sc tog, 1 sc in last sc, fasten off. (27 sc)
Sew button or a Velcro strip in place. (I crocheted a cover for the button I used.)
