Coin and Card Purse - Free Crochet Pattern - Crochet Cloudberry

Card and coin purse

Summer crochet season is definitely upon us and as you may have noticed I’m shying away from heavy and warm crochet projects and instead I’m using cotton in cooling colours. This new project definitely fits that bill, although I have to admit it is something I’ve been wanting to make since the winter when I bought the cotton. Where does the time go?

It is a mini purse that is just big enough to put the essentials in and then be thrown into a pretty evening bag for a night out. At 7cm by 10cm it is big enough to hold a few credit or debit cards together with notes and coins, and is pretty enough to be seen out.

Below is my free crochet credit card pocket pattern. You can check out my other free accessory patterns.

    If I wanted to make the purse larger, what stitch would I insert my hook when beginning to make the flap? For the pattern, it was the 8th stitch…. Thanks.

      Hej Janet,
      yes, it definately is possible to make that purse larger, just a little maths is needed. You need to divide the number of stitches you have in the main body of the purse by 2, and then substract 2. That is then the stitch where you join the thread to make the flap and make the first chain. I hope that helps.
