Tunisian Stripe Purse is an original PlanetJune Accessories crochet pattern by June Gilbank.
Want the look of knit but formed with a crochet hook? This pattern is a great introduction to Tunisian crochet - all you need is a size J afghan hook or double-ended crochet hook (available in most craft stores) and worsted weight yarn to make this pretty and functional purse. The clever construction means it's all crocheted - there's no sewing involved in the assembly! - and, as an added bonus, the sturdy, thick nature of the crocheted fabric means that there's no need for a fabric lining either.
Bonus: If you're new to Tunisian crochet, the pattern comes with 2 exclusive bonus Introduction to Tunisian Crochet PDFs (one each for right- and left-handers) including fully illustrated instructions for all the stitches you need for the pattern.
Difficulty: easy (if you know Tunisian crochet); intermediate (for those new to Tunisian crochet)
Yarn: worsted weight yarn in two coordinating shades
J US/6mm double-ended or Tunisian crochet hook
H US/5mm crochet hook
Details: Pattern is 10 pages long and includes full written instructions, helpful photos and assembly diagrams, and modification instructions for resizing the pattern to make it larger.
