DIY Anthropologie Inspired Summer Clutch {Free Crochet Pattern}

free crochet pattern summer clutch

An Athro inspired design. A little while ago I stumbled across an image of Anthropologie's Granny Square Clutch and I just had to have one! The bright bold boarder on a neutral base just seemed to scream summer. I loved it so much I made my Summer Clutch very much a look-alike, but with a bit of imagination you can crochet your own knockoff clutch in any color combo you choose.


One Size: Laying flat with flap open the finished bag will measure approximately 8.5 x 10 inches.

Stitch Knowledge:  ch (chain), sc (single crochet), hdc (half double crochet), dc (double crochet), sl st (slip stitch)

Materials List:
Worsted Weight Yarn
Size U.S. J/10 (6.00 mm) Hook
Scissors and Tapestry Needle

Guage: 11 dc and 6 rows = 4 x 4 inches

CLUTCH

Note: Rounds 1-4 are worked in continuous spiral rounds. Do not join and do not turn. Mark the first stitch of each round with a removable stitch marker. Move the stitch marker up as each round is completed.

Starting out: Ch 21.

Rnd 1: Work 2 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Sc 18. Work 3 sc in last ch. Working across the other side of chain, sc 18. Work 1 sc in last ch (will already have 2 sc from other side). (42)

Rnd 2: Work 2 sc into each of the next 2 stitches. Sc 18. Work 2 sc into each of the next 3 stitches. Sc 18. Work 2 sc in last stitch. (48)

Rnd 3: Work 1 sc into each stitch around. (48)

Rnd 4: Repeat Rnd 3. (48)

Rnd 5: Work (sc, 2 dc) in next stitch. {Skip 2 sc, work (sc, 2 dc) in next.} Repeat between {} around to last two stitches. Skip 2 sc, sl st to first sc to join. (48)

Rnd 6: Ch 1, turn. Work (sc, 2 dc) into same stitch as join. {Skip 2 dc, work (sc, 2 dc) in next sc.} Repeat between {} around to last two stitches. Skip 2 dc, sl st to first sc to join. (48)

Rnd 7-12: Repeat Round 6.

Rnd 13: Ch 1, turn. Skip first sc, work 1 sc into each of the next 24 stitches. {Skip 2 dc, work (sc, 2 dc) in next sc.} Repeat between {} around to last two stitches. Skip 2 dc, work sc in joining stitch.  (46)

Note: Pattern is now worked in rows, not rounds.

Row 14: Ch 1 (counts as first sc), turn. Work 2 dc in first sc. {Skip 2 dc, work (sc, 2 dc) in next sc.} Repeat between {} five times. Skip 2 dc, work sc in last sc.  (22)

Row 15: Ch 1 (counts as first sc), turn. Work 2 dc in first sc. {Skip 2 dc, work (sc, 2 dc) in next sc.} Repeat between {} five times. Skip 2 dc, sc in turning chain at the end of the row. (22)

Row 16-23: Repeat Row 15.

Finishing: Join new color. Ch 1, turn. Skip first stitch, work (sc,hdc,sc) in next. {Skip next stitch, work (sc,hdc,sc) in next.} Repeat between {} across to last dc. Skip last dc, work five (sc,hdc,sc) clusters evenly spaced across the side of the flap. Skip first sc, work (sc,hdc,sc) in next stitch. {Skip next stitch, work (sc,hdc,sc) in next.} Repeat between {} across. Work five (sc,hdc,sc) clusters evenly spaced across the other side of the flap. Sl st to first sc to join. Tie off, weave in ends.
