Coin purse with a kiss clasp*
I found the pattern for the smaller, not so fat coin purse! I think these are great gifts for a variety of people and they are not hard at all. I hope you give it a try.
What I used: H hook, small amount of sturdy yarn, kiss clasp
What I did: chain 11, 2sc in the second chain from the hook using Back Loops Only, sc 8x, 4sc ss. Your work will naturally turn to the left to work along the backside of the starting chain. Sc 8x, 2sc ss in last stitch. Do not chain or turn.
Round2: 2 sc ss, (mark the first with a st marker and move it up as you go, this will help keep track of your rounds) sc 10x, 2sc ss 2x, sc 10x, 2sc ss.
Round3: 2sc ss, sc 12x, 2sc ss 2x, sc 12x, 2sc ss.
Round4: 2sc ss, sc14x, 2sc ss 2x, sc 14x, 2sc ss.
Rounds5-20? Or until work is desired size (approx 3 ½”): sc in the round. I have used cotton and a wool blend for this project. The cotton needed a G hook, but not as many rows. I was surprised when I used Rainbow wool and an H hook, it turned out a bit smaller?
Kiss clasp: be aware when purchasing the clasps, not all the holes drilled were correctly when I last looked. There were only 3 I felt were worth buying.
If you are lucky, you have a clasp with large enough holes to use yarn to sew the crochet piece to the clasp. If not, you can use heavy-duty thread.
Don't forget to check out the Fat coin purse, too!
