This listing is for PATTERN in PDF format, not the actual purse!

Here's the story behind this pattern - in 2010 I created one-of-the-kind crochet purse "Aqua" for the purse-making-challenge. I loved the result and shared my work on web. Over the next years I got many compliments and requests for the pattern, which I didn't have as my purse was freeformed on the go and there was no way I would even think of writing it all down.

In the end of 2012 after yet another lovely request for the pattern, I decided to create a new "Aqua". One which is similar to original yet re-creatable. Took me many months to complete the pattern but here it is!

Pattern is written using US crochet terms.

DIMENSIONS of purse:

Height: 22 cm
Width at top: 18 cm
Width at bottom: 26 cm


• 3 skeins of any worsted weight cotton or cotton blend yarn in light turquoise blue (color A) for purse. I used Drops „Paris“, 100% cotton, 50g = 75 m

• 4,0 mm crochet hook for purse (G/6 in US)

• sport weight cotton yarn for border, handles and motifs in 5 different shades,
I used Drops „Safran“, 100% cotton, 50g = 160 m

• 2,5 mm crochet hook for border, handles and motifs (C/2 in US)

Purse is crocheted in rounds.
Handles and all the motifs for embellishing are worked separately and sewn to purse later on.

Even if creating this purse may seem a bit complicated to you by looking at the photos of the finished purse - I assure you it's easier than it looks :)
Detailed written instructions and lots of photos will guide you through the process and if you'll have any questions along the way I'll help you with pleasure.
