That ruffled pink thing  

This is the original.
This is my version.
This will take 3-4 balls of Sugar'n'Cream or similar yarn (depending on handles, or if you decide on more or less ruffles)
Sugar'n'Cream comes in 70.9 gm balls, which is what I used, and is a worsted weight cotton, one ball is about 120 yards.

Size F hook
Yarn needle
Stitches abbreviations-
ch=chain
sl st= slip stitch
st= stitch
hdc= half double crochet
sc=single crochet
dc=double crochet

Purse body:
Ch 26, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sl st down the length (I like to start my purse bodies like this because it seems to make them just a bit more secure)

Rnd 1: ch 1 to turn, 2 sc in first ch, sc in next 23 chs, 4 sc in last ch, start working up the other side, sc in next 23

chs, 2 sc in last ch (same stitch the first 2 sc are in) sl st to join to first sc

Rnd 2: ch 1 to turn, hdc in first st, 3 hdc in next st, hdc in next 23 sts, 3 hdc in next st, 2 hdc in next st, 3 hdc in next st, hdc in next 23 sts, 3 hdc in next st, hd in first st, sl st to join

next st, hdc in next 25 sts, 3 hdc in next st, 2 hd in first st, sl st to join

Rnd 4-21: ch 1 to turn, hdc in each stitch, sl st to join


Break off yarn, weave in the end.


Flap: (oh geez.. my notes for this are scribbled lines of numbers, and some of them I had to cross out when I realized it wasn't working right. I hate having to read my own handwriting!)

Rnd 9: ch 1 to turn, sc in first stitch, sc in next st, ch 2 skip 2 st, *sc in next 2 st, ch 2 skip two st,* repeat ** around, sl st to join last chain 2 to first sc

Ruffle:
Rnd 10: ch 3 (counts as first st), dc in same st, 2 dc in each st around, sl st to join
Rnd 11: Chain 3 (counts as first st), dc in same st, dc in next st, *2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st* repeat ** around. Join with sl st
Rnd 12: Repeat rnd 11

I started the cord in the middle to keep the ends neat, it's easier to hide woven in yarn ends in the back of the purse with

the ruffles then at the ends of the ties.
Ch 101, skip last chain, sl st up the chain, then chain 101, and sl st back up the other side of the chain. Break off and

weave in ends.

Weave the cord through the chain 2 spaces before the ruffle and tie in a bow in the front.
Now you've got the purse, and the ruffly oval.

(the rectangle is supposed to be the purse. Imagine it's a purse)

Fold the ruffly oval in half lengthwise, and pin the back of the ruffle in place on the purse, then stitch it down with matching yarn to the back of the purse. The blue shows where I stitched it.


Handles: Well, this is really sort of up to taste and supplies on hand. I used a store bought handle with rings on the ends, and crocheted two little strips and sewed them to the sides to hold the handle I bought in place.

I'd have preferred a handle I could remove easily for washing, and actually had one off an old purse I planned to use, but I misplaced it last time I was looking for something in my big bin of crafty stuff.

Total cost: Well, I wound up using 3 balls of yarn, which I bought on sale for 1.00, and the handles were 4.99 for 2, and I only used one of them, so $5.50.


And it's done. I'm SOO sick of looking at it right now. I'll have to look at it fresh tomorrow and see what I think. I stuffed the purse lightly for the picture. I had to. It was very strange looking flat.
Since I put up my little drawings of the basic shape of the pieces, you can see, there are variations possible to make it more uniquely your own. You could use a pretty ruffled lace edging instead of just a ruffle, do it in single crochet instead of the half doubles I did it in, all sort of things. Heck, you could sew one. Which would be soo much quicker.

Once I got to round 3, there are a couple of stitches that stay untouched before turning. Leaves a gap. I dont know if I am doing something wrong. I seem to have got the other rounds.

That is so cute!
This is such a cute purse. Unfortunately, I don't crochet. Where did you find the knitted version, please?
