Summer Festival Clutch

A Free Beginner Friendly Crochet Pattern 


I've got a great beginner friendly pattern for you all today. The only stitches in this clutch are sc and sl st. It doesn't get easier than that. I have been noticing a trend for the summer of circular clutches and baskets for hand bags. I love the artisan look that is being developed in fashion as of late. So here is my take on the trend. 

This is a little clutch is just the right size to have your bare essentials. My girls love it to put their little special things in. I used Bernat Handicrafter for the yarn. I love the color that I chose. It makes it look more like a basket and I finished it with a simple embroidery design. of long stitches to make the flower. I added some lazy daisy stitches for the leaves in a secondary color.
