A purse or a handbag is every woman’s necessity. She carries her stuff around places and it helps her hold important things. That way I am here to share a simple and cute Crochet Purse pattern with you all to help you carry your personal belongings when you step out. You can keep your cell phone, lip-balm, keys, cards, etc. and carry it in style.


  • 100% Cotton Yarn – {I used White and Green}
  • 4mm crochet hook
  • Tapestry Needle to weave in the ends
  • Scissors


ch – chain

ss – slip stich

sc – single crochet

hdc – half double crochet

Gauge: [HDC – 5 stitches and 3 rows = 1 x 1 inch]

Finished Size: 8” length x 4.75” height


  • You can make smaller or bigger purse by changing the length of initial chain in and make corresponding changes.
  • Ch 2 in the beginning of the rounds doesn’t count as a stitch.



{with Green yarn}

Round 1: Ch 35.

Round 2: SC in the 2nd chain from the hook and SC in the remaining chains, making 2 SC in the last chain (working on the other side of the chain) SC in each chain, SS to the first SC made. [68]

Round 3: Ch 2. 1 HDC in the same stitch, 1 HDC around, SS with the first HDC made. [68]

Rounds 4 – 12: Repeat Round 3.

{with White yarn}

Round 13: Repeat Round 3.

Round 14: Ch 2, 1 HDC in the loop behind ‘V’ loop in the same stitch and every stitch around. SS in the loop behind the ‘V’ loop of the first HDC made. [68]

This is the ‘V’ stitch

This is the stitch behind the ‘V’ stitch where you should continue your work.

Rounds 15 – 17: Repeat Round 14.

Round 18: SS around in the loop behind ‘V’ loop.

Fasten off and weave the ends.


Take a ¾” button and attach it to the centre of the white rows.

BUTTON LOOP: {with White yarn}

  1. Mark the centre of the purse.
  2. On the inside of the purse, make a mark slightly to the right from the centre (A) and slightly to the left from the centre (B).
  3. Make a slip knot and join at (A), Ch 14 and SS at (B). This forms the Button Loop.
  4. Fasten off and weave the ends.

Your own Crochet Purse is ready to use. You can make smaller or bigger sized purse by changing the number of initial chains. You can also add fabric lining to it along with a zipper and attach a strap for your convenience. You can modify the look of it to fit your needs.

  1. Hi Mary Jude, The base of the bag is worked in rounds so it will begin to curl up like a boat a bit as it takes shape into the bag. It will ‘cup’ into the bag shape. I hope that makes sense – it is a bit like the way we would make a hat except skinnier. This is actually a design by a Guest Poster on my blog (not my own pattern) but if you have any other questions, just let me know 🙂 I’m happy you liked the scarf pattern and that your niece loved it too! All the best, Rhondda

  2. Hi Rhondda, I seem to be having a problem with this pattern, and I love the design of your purse, and thank you sharing your pattern… I had made one of your scarfs of the month last fall, and it came out beautiful, my niece loved it, I made it in camo color. So, with the purse, it starts curling on the end like the front of a canoe… lol, don’t know what I am doing wrong. I have restarted the pattern about 5 times. Is it supposed to curl at one end?? Thank you Rhondda…

  3. Hi Lisa, You may always sell what you crochet 🙂 Just not the written pattern itself 🙂 Thank you! Rhondda

  4. I love your pattern. Do you give permission to sell the finished product?
