My goodness! It took me more than two months to finally write this pattern! But the main thins is that I eventually did that and now you can follow this super easy guide to make such a purse! A couple of hours and you will have a trendy staple to match your casual jeans-&-t-shirt outfit or even a fancy one. It’s up to you to decide which color to choose. And if your choice will be black and some matching color than why not wear it with a dress?
The yarn that I used was a T-shirt yarn again. I love it because it looks veeery nice and stylish, it’s just a perfect choice for summer accessories and it’s super easy to knit with. You won’t even notice when your clutch is finished! So no more bla-bla but go and check this pattern and feel free to ask any questions.
I’ll be also glad to hear your feedback as to how you like my patterns and what would you like to see next. Because I’m planning to develop patterns more often now (wink).
Knitted Clutch — pattern
What you need:
- 2 cones of t-shirt yarn of different colors
- 10mm knitting needles
- metal ring
- 1 sewing needle
The bodice of the clutch:
Cast on 22 stiches with the main color.
Row 1: slip first stich unknitted onto the right needle. Knit all the stiches till the last one. Purl the last stich.
Repeat row 1 until the bodice is about 37-38 cm long (15 in)
Row 2: On the right side knit two stiches together throught the back loop (decline 1 stich), continue knitting till three stiches left on the left needle. Knit two together through the front loop (decline 1). Purl the last stich.
Knit the next row as Row 1.
Bind off the stiches.
Cast on 6 stiches.
Knit just as the the bodice until the side is 10 cm (4 in) long.
Bind off the stiches.
Make two sides.
From the inner side sew the sides to the purse.
Using yarn of the second color cut ten stripes about 20 cm (8 in) long. Take a ring and slip the stripes through it so that the ring is in the middle.
Take some extra yarn and tie the stripes to tighten them together.
Use the yarn of the first color to sew the tassel to the purse.
Hooray! You’ve made it! And that’s how it looks with my casual outfit: a white T-shirt, skinny jeans and new balances.
