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, this pattern comes with an exclusive bonus Introduction to Tunisian Crochet PDF including fully illustrated instructions for all the stitches you need for the pattern. Choose (below) whether you'd like the right-handed or left-handed instructions.
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
