Over the weekend I managed to do a little stash busting. The weather was cool and rainy, perfect for snuggling on the sofa and working on projects. I found this pattern on Lion Brand’s Web-site, it can be done in knit or crochet. It is called Claudia’s Clutch. It works up quickly whether you knit or crochet it. I had to try both!
Here is the knit version
I used Lion Brand Suede in the color Moonshadow with Caron Fabulous in the color Country Cottage and used a size 10 needle.
This is the crochet version
I used Lion Brand Suede in the color Mocha, I used all I had of that and used the color Moonshadow for the flap. I also used the Caron Fabulous with this and a K hook.
On both of these I crocheted the sides together and did a slip stitch around the flap. I also put a very simple lining inside, just for fun.(ha)
These are both great projects to have for the “in case of” gift. I always like to have a few of those around if I can.
