Size

Size 5 inches tall by 10 inches wide

Supplies

Size N Hook

T-shirt Yarn Cotton Fettuccini Zpagetti (note, the color I used I can’t find at this time)

Stitch Marker

Scissors

Yarn Needle

Sewing Needle

Matching Thread

1-Inch Button

Abbreviations

SC = Single Crochet

HDC = Half Double Crochet

ST = Stitch

Directions

Note-you will want to mark each row with a stitch marker to help you keep track of your starting and ending stitches.

CH 24

Round 1: SC in 2nd CH from hook and in the next 22 ST. 3SC in the last ST, rotate your work in order to  work on the opposite side of the beginning CH, SC in the next 21 ST, ending with 3 SC in the last ST.

Notice in the picture how I am coming around the end. I am also crocheting over the beginning tail from my original slip stitch that started the CH. This helps keep that secure and can be easily hidden and cut off later. (hint: I kept mine on until the end so I didn’t have to use a stitch marker. This helped me know exactly want side of my work I started on).

In the picture above, I am just past the first few rounds.

Round 2-5: SC in each ST around.

In the picture below, I have a few rounds completed already and the clutch is starting to take shape. Notice how the beginning tail has been crochet over. I will be eventually cutting that off.

Round 6: HDC in each ST around. It is hard to tell I think from the picture below, but the HDC is complete. Once the next row or two are added, there is a different stitch in the clutch as it makes a line across. I just think it adds a bit more visual appeal. If you look at the picture below, the row just a few down from where the button is position looks different, this is the HDC row.

Round 7-10: Sc in ST around.

Round 11: SC half way on one of the sides-about 12 ST in. Visually check that it looks like the middle just in case you have used a different number of ST. Draw up a loop of the t-shirt yarn-check that the loop is long enough to get over a button that you will be sewing on later-but not too long that it will slip off the button. Keeping the loop of yarn in place, continue SC around.

Round 12: SC around making sure to SC on the outside of the loop. This will help hide the loop in the clutch a bit and make it more attractive.

Weave in the end using a smaller crochet hook and cut off any amount dangling.

You have completed the crochet portion of the clutch.

Button

Now find a pretty button-about 1 inch in size, use matching thread and sew on the outside of the clutch (opposite the loop). This allows you to be able to close the clutch by securing the loop over the button.
