I have been considering projects with this yarn for a while now and since I am on such a handbag kick, I decided to take on the task. Yes, this purse can be made with one braid of Caron x Panton Bamboo yarn in whatever color you choose. In hindsight, I would have used something more basic in color as this seems a bit busy for my taste, but it turned out lovely nonetheless.

Materials:

1 Braid Caron x Pantone Bamboo Yarn (Party Favor shown)

1 Crochet Hook Size H (5.0 mm)

1 Button in preferred size and type (1″ Coconut button shown)

1 Yarn Needle

Pattern Notes:

Mainly basic stitches are used in this pattern, however some stitch clusters should be clarified:

4DcCl: 4 double crochet cluster – yo, insert hook in next stitch, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull through 2 (2 loops on hook). Yo, insert hook same stitch, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull through 2 loops (3 loops on hook). Yo, insert hook in same stitch, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull through 2 (4 loops on hook). Yo, insert hook in same stitch, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull through 2 (5 loops on hook). Yo and pull through all 5 loops.

3DcCl: 3 double crochet cluster – yo, insert hook in next stitch, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull through 2 (2 loops on hook). Yo, insert hook same stitch, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull through 2 loops (3 loops on hook). Yo, insert hook in same stitch, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull through 2 (4 loops on hook). Yo and pull through all 4 loops.

vst: dc, ch 1, dc in same stitch, forming a ‘V’

I worked each mandala piece and when it was time to assemble the bag, I decided to have my WS (wrong side) showing. For some reason, it appealed more to me than the RS (right side) of my work. You may do as you please, but know that this is why the stitches look not quite ‘right’ on my finished product.

  1. thanks for sharing This for free! This is really cute and coming together quickly. I think row 7 should say dc instead of sc. In the repeat.
