Crocodile Stitch Purse Pattern
Crocodile Stitch Purse Pattern

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Half double crochet
  • Double crochet
  • Treble crochet

Pattern Description:

I fell in love with the crocodile stitch and wanted to make a bag out of it. I wasn't happy with something that was all crocodile stitch, but wanted something that could be completely customized and girly if I wanted it to be. So I came up with this design.

This pattern comes as a PDF file which includes instructions for the basic purse, as well as the alternative ribbon variation. Also included in the pattern is a brief picture tutorial on the crocodile stitch and the reverse single crochet stitch.

All techniques and measurements are listed in US terminology.
