Crochet Shoulder Clutch

Hey guys. So I’ve gotten a little bag-crazy lately, but you can never have to many bags right?
A long time ago I made an other bag pattern in Zpagetti yarn – I just love that stuff.
This time I wanted a bag with a more evening feel to it. So with the cute button, the black yarn and the “gold” chain I think I have accomplished that goal. I love it! Tomorrow I will take it on its virgin voyage to the club.
The bag measure (approx.)
Finished size: 27 cm x 15 cm (10.6 in x 5.9 in)
Length from top chain to bottom of bag: 58 cm (22.8 in)
- The yarn used in the pictures is Hoooked Zpagetti yarn
- 1 ball of 850 g is plenty
Crochet hook size 10 mm (N/15 US sizes – 000 UK sizes)
1 meter of chain (3.3 feet)
- Use whatever type you like, they are cheap in hardware stores.
1 shank button approx. 2 cm in diameter (0.8 inch)
Optional: I used pliers to “open” the chain links for attaching on bag, but you can sew them on if you want.
The bag is worked in rows in the moss stitch.
Sc = Single Crochet (US terms)
Ch = Chain
Row 1: Single crochet in 4th chain from hook, *ch 1, skip 1 ch, sc in next* repeat *…* to end, you’ll finish with a sc.
Row 2: Chain 2, Sc in the next ch1 space, *ch 1, sc in the next ch1 space* repeat *…* to end, finishing with a sc in the ch3 space at the start of the first row.
Row 3: Chain 2, Sc in the next ch1 space, *ch 1, sc in the next ch1 space* repeat *…* to end, finishing with a sc in the ch2 space at the start of the second row.
Row 4-33: Repeat “Row 3”
Row 34: Chain 2, Sc in next ch1 space, *ch 1, sc in the next ch1 space* x 6 times, ch 3, sc in next ch 1 space, *ch 1, sc in the next ch1 space* x 6 times (this give you the button-hole in the middle of the row)
Row 35: Chain 2, Sc in the next ch1 space, *ch 1, sc in the next ch1 space* repeat *…* to end, finishing with a sc in the ch2 space at the start of the second row. (You crochet the last row as row 3 with one Sc in the “ch3 space” from last row.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
The pattern in pictures
You work the “Sc in next ch1 space” where the blue arrows are.
Decide which side is your front.
Fold the bag with front turning inward so that Row 1 and 25 align. Single crochet trough both layers along edge. The single crochet will be in between the rows and gives you 7 stitches. Do this in both sides.
“Weave” in the yarn in the chain, and attach to sides of bag. I used pliers to open the chain links and attach into a stitch (see picture), but you can sew them on if you want.
I sowed on the button between row 6 and 7, but make sure it aligns with the buttonhole.
That is it; your new bag is finished. Hope you like it!
