Comments

  1. i love this pattern but i need a little help with row 5 i don quite understand pleease help!!

  2. Using size 7/1.65mm hook and 10 thread, this is working up beautifully! It’s about 7 inches in diameter, unstretched. Just need to decide how to finish it…

  3. It’s kind of confusing at first. I would love to see a zoom feature so we can see what it is supposed to look like as we go along. Its a beautiful pattern, I just hope I can complete it as shown.

  4. i don’t understand how round 12 is done. help! please!

  5. Did you use a purse frame, or do something to keep the outside of this purse stretched? Mine lays funny if I don’t stretch it out. Did I do something wrong? I don’t see any instructions on how to finish this project in the instructions or the comments below, other than just lining it.

  6. i kind of like this one.

    Unfortunately we can not add an abbreviation chart to all our projects. If you are a beginner you can grab one via google.

    looks gorgeous, but for beginners there should be a stitch abbreviation key tr=? sc= single crochet would be helpful
