Simply Crochet Saturday (07/10/17)

Todays Simply Crochet Saturday post goes to this adorable little coin purse.

It came as the free gift on issue twenty eight (one of the first in my collection). You can find it here on ravelry.

I think this is a sweet little pattern and the yarn supplied was lovely. Such a pretty colour and sheen. The pattern was easy to follow. My main criticism however is that the yarn came up short. I was a good meter or two short of being able to finish it completely. I had to omit the last 5 rows of the button flap as I didnt have enough yarn. Its still sweet, but its not quite as nice looking as it should have been. Oh well, these things happen. I did however get more than double the ribbon I needed, so to fill the gap left by the shortness of the button flap I added an extra row of ribbon. Balances it out quite nicely.

  1. Very nice πŸ™‚ I don’t think you can really tell that the flap isn’t quite as intended, and the ribbon is definitely a nice touch- I think I should start thinking about how to incorporate different things like that into my work!
