This summer is all about crochet fun little purse or a clutch for you girl! I’m fascinated by the possibilities of single and double crochet stitch that can create such a cute things, and I love making crochet small and cute purse that I can use in my everyday life. But, you know what I’ve never made before?
A crochet purse or a clutch! How is that even possible?! Never fear, because I quickly realized that I needed to get on it and came up with the easiest, most adorable, beginner’s crochet clutch pattern you’ve ever seen.
What makes it so easy and perfect for beginners? The stitch, of course! In fact, all you need to know how to do is a single crochet stitch. That’s it. If you can make a single crochet rectangle, you can master this easy crochet clutch pattern in no time. See how easy this pattern is going to be?
You can use acrylic yarn, cotton yarn, or even alpaca yarn if you wanted to! Besides the fact that the stitch is so easy, the great thing about this pattern is that it can be used to make a clutch for any season.
I’m already planning on making some for Christmas presents (shh, don’t tell my family!). Since it’s still summer here, I opted to use a lighter weight yarn and save the heavier wools for later. I love the way it turned out!
I am not a fan of tiny bags that aren’t really big enough to hold anything, so I kept that in mind while making this pattern.
This crochet clutch is big enough to hold your phone, ID, make-up, and a few odds and ends – you know, the essentials! If you wanted to add a shoulder strap to it, you could, but I really like just having a quick clutch to grab as I’m heading out the door to the park with my son or when I’m going out to dinner. This bag is the perfect size!

Hello, I just have a question. Should I use a hook according to yarn weight or must it be 3.5 mm? I love this pattern and I can't wait to try it.
