This purse is made with simple stitches, but requires more concentration than my other designs. It uses staggered increases (to smooth the arcs and keep the straight edge straight) so stitch markers aren’t really useful. I highly recommend using Bernat Home Dec yarn or something similar so it’s easy to sew the snaps on. The purse is designed to be worn across the chest, but you can easily adjust the strap to whatever length you like, or leave it off all together for a clutch.
