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.

Garden Party Clutch: A Crochet Pattern



I sure do get distracted easily. I told you, my readers that I would slowly move my patterns over from Crochetvolution.com. I really wasn't thinking it would be this slowly. Since it is getting to be wedding season, I thought it would be a good time to bring this free clutch pattern over to the blog. As always it will still be at Crochetvolution . But it's nice to have all my patterns in one spot.

This is a great little bag to keep your essentials in when you need to get glammed up. I was at wedding this weekend and everyone had such fantastic clutches, and I was stuck with my big diaper bag. Oh well, one day I can have it all together.

Don't forget to add this pattern to your favorites on Ravelry. I have also made it available for pdf download for $3.00 through Ravelry. buy now This is a great option if you want a copy that is ads free and easy to print.
