Quick & easy brown purse




Materials:
- 3 ½ oz. ww acrylic (I used TLC Essentials)
- 2 oz. acrylic-polyester boucle (I used Bernat Soft Boucle)
- L hook
- two 7” purse rings
- (optional) fabric for lining

Size:  Approximately 10” x 15” not including handles

Note:
Work with 1 strand ww acrylic and 1 strand boucle held together throughout.

Directions:
Row 1: Sc around one ring, ch 50, sc around the other ring. Ch 1, turn.


Row 2: Sc in first 10 chs, dc in next 30 chs, sc in last 10 chs. Sc around ring. Ch 1, turn.

Rows 3 - 22: Sc in 1st 10 sc, dc in next 30 dc, sc in last 10 sc, sc around ring. Ch 1, turn.

At end of Row 22, sl st in 1st sc, end off.

Now would be a good time to line your purse with fabric if desired. Be careful to leave edges of Rows 1 and 22 free for sewing together.

Match dc stitches together and sl st or whipstitch closed.
