I have fallen completely in love with the crocodile stitch in crochet as many of you have also. How couldn’t we isn’t it fantastic! Anyway thank you to www.bernat.com for their awesome mermaid tears purse pattern and thank you to the crochet crowd for their incredible tutorial on youtube. You can get the pattern for free from bernat you just have to sign up for a membership first. Super simple! And they have lots of great patterns.
This stitch work is done in multiples of 6 so you can chain 84, 90, 96 or whatever amount of stitches gives you the size bag you want.
This purse pattern is so beautiful but I found that the bag became a little heavy. I am going to make several of these purses for Christmas gifts and I think I am going to make the bags slightly smaller and change the handles because of the weight.
I’ll keep you posted and until next time Happy Crocheting!
