Head’s up! Each skein of this fun yarn is quite large, so could easily make a few of these clutches – the fact that you’re using paper to crochet with is so neat, and makes for a fun “straw-like” texture (perfect for summer projects!)
To close the flap of the clutch, I created a little loop at the top & used a fun little sunflower button (also from HobiumYarns) so it can be closed securely.
There’s also optional directions to add a wrist strap if you’d like! It’s cute + adds a little extra security to help hold the clutch! 😉
Being this pattern was designed in collaboration with HobiumYarns, I wanted to offer this as a free pattern, but I also have the condensed, inexpensive, ad-free + instant-downloadable PDF pattern available in my shop if you’d like! 🙂
Are you ready to get started? Great! Let’s go! 🙂
-A 5mm crochet hook
-A pair of scissors
-A hand sewing needle
-Any button about ½ inch in width
-Sewing thread in a color that matches your button
Ch = chain
St = stitch
Sl st = slip stitch
Sc = single crochet
Tog = together
(Base of the clutch)
Row 1: Put 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each st across. Ch 1, turn.
Row 2: Put 1 sc in the same st that you just ch 1 from, and in each st across. Ch 1, turn.
(You’ll now be crocheting in the round, by making stitches across as normal, and the turning & crocheting down the side, bottom, & across the other side of the rows you just crocheted, & joining with a sl st to the beginning st of the round.)
(Body of the clutch)
Round 1: Ch 1, and put 1 sc in each st across, and around the entire base you just created. Sl st to the top of the beginning st to join the round.
Rounds 2-15: Ch 1, and put 1 sc in each st around. Sl St to the top of the beginning st to join the round.
Row 1: Ch 1, turn. Put 1 sc in the same st you just ch 1 from, and in each st across, for 25 sc total. Ch 1, turn.
Row 2: Sc2tog, then 1 sc in ea st across the entire row until you have 2 st left, then sc2tog the last 2 st of the row.
Rows 3-12: Repeat row 2.
Row 13: Ch 1, turn. Sl st across the row (3 st total), then ch 3 & join with a sl st to the 1st st of the row (creating a loop for the button to go through). Cut yarn, and weave in ends.
Sew the button on where it matches up with the loop, when the flap is closed on the clutch.
Attach hook and yarn to one corner of the top of the clutch. Chain 30, (or more if you’d like your strap longer) and sl st to the st next to the one you just chained from. Ch 1, turn and sc back up & around the strap. Sl st to the beginning chain.
Cut yarn, and weave in all ends.
Ta da! You are finished! Enjoy your new handmade clutch! 😊
