Furry Fun Purse: Crochet

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® - Fun Fur®

GAUGE:

8 stitches + 12 rows = 4" (10 cm) in single crochet with one strand of each yarn held together.

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:

Purse is worked with 1 strand of Wool-Ease Thick & Quick and 1 strand of Fun Fur held together throughout.

Furry Fun Purse: Crochet Reviewed by Marilyn Luce on 2009-07-13 *****
I made this purse in black and love it. I did make an alteration on the strap as follows:
It was a little short so I added on and cast on 65 stitches. I also made it a little wider wider by k 1 row and p 1 row then binding it off. The length is perfect and a little sturdier with the wider strap.
I will be making several for friends that are asking for it and will be ordering more yarn in bright colors.
