Spring Has Sprung Clutch

Spring Has Sprung Clutch Free Crochet Pattern
Crocheted Spring Has Sprung Clutch

I just received a bunch of free yarn so I decided to fiddle around a little bit. I found this mint green wool and it just screamed spring. These pictures really don't do it justice as the color is really pastel.

 After a few hours, I was able to come up with this really cool clutch pattern. I haven't tested this pattern yet so please be patient with me. I am just a beginner designer. If you have any questions I will answer them to the best of my abilities.

To print out this pattern, scroll to the bottom of this page and select the "print friendly" icon.

Spring Has Sprung Clutch Pattern

sl-->Slip Stitch
ch-->Chain
sc-->Single Crochet
scTBL-->Single Crochet through the back loop
FPtrb-->Front Post Treble Crochet

Foundation Ch 8

Row 1 Starting one chain from the hook 7 sc in the bottom loop of your chain, turn

Row 2-70 Ch 1, 7 scTBL, turn Connect to foundation chain, get positions to start working in the round, this can be achieved with one continuous piece of yarn.

 Round 1 Ch 1, *1 sc, 1 sc through top of single crochet from row below** repeat *to** until the first sc is reached, sl to finish round

 Round 2 Ch 4, *FPtrb through the stitch that connects to the stripes in the rows below, ch 1** repeat until the end of the round, sl into the 3rd ch used to begin the round.

!!The goal is to continue the stripe pattern started in the rows used to create the top of the bag!!

Rounds 3 through 6 Repeat round 2. After the last round is finished tie off. Turn back inside out and seal it close with 1 or 2 sc in between each of the FPtrb depending on how tight your stitches are.
You don't want the bottom to the bunch but you also do not want it to be too loose.
