Bridal Clutch

Lion Brand« Vanna's Glamour®

GAUGE:

3 1/2 reps (5-dc groups) + 10 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

1. Clutch is worked back and forth in rows to make flat rectangle.
2. A fabric lining is sewed in, then piece is folded and seamed to make the Clutch.

Ch 44.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, *sk next 2 ch, 5 dc in next ch, sk next 2 ch, sc in next ch; rep from * to end of row - Seven 5-dc groups.

Bridal Clutch Reviewed by Bonnie Eickstadt on 2013-06-29 *****
Very fun to make! I used a Crochet hook two sizes smaller to get the correct dimensions for me. Sewed on a snap as called for then a pretty shiny button top.
