Learn how to make a pretty crochet coin purse. This free crochet pattern will walk you through how to make a pretty patterned coin purse perfect for keeping for yourself or gifting to a friend.

If you are looking for a fun and simple little crochet project, I have one for you right here! I’ve had this purse frame sitting in my craft room for some time now just waiting for a little crocheted pouch to finish it out. Of course, you could fit lots of different patterns and motifs onto this cute little frame (in fact there’s another crochet coin purse included in our second Blog Hop Crochet Along – coming Monday!), but I decided to go for something with a graphic black and white look. I think the pattern looks a bit like houndstooth, and I rather like it.
Wouldn’t this little coin purse make a great gift? I say definitely. Want to make your own? Here’s how:

This pattern uses American crochet terms.
Spike Stitch – A spike stitch is basically just an elongated single crochet that is worked into a lower row instead of the previous row. Insert the hook in to the stitch indicated in the pattern, draw up a loop and pull the yarn up to the height of the working yarn. Yarn over, and pull the yarn through both loops to finish the sc spike.
Rnd 1: Begin with a magic loop, and crochet 6 sc into the loop, pull to tighten, sl st to join.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, sc in same st, 2 sc in each st around (12 sc).
Rnd 3: Ch 1, sc in same st, sc, 2 sc; *sc, sc, 2 sc, repeat from *4 times (18 sc).
Rnd 4: Ch 1, sc in same st, sc, sc, 2 sc; *sc, sc, sc, 2 sc, repeat from * 4 times (24 sc).
Rnd 5: Ch 1, sc in same st, sc, sc, sc, 2 sc; *sc, sc, sc, sc, 2 sc, repeat from * 4 times (30 sc).
Rnd 6: Ch 1, sc in same st, sc, sc, sc, sc, 2 sc; *sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, 2 sc, repeat from * 4 times (36 sc).
Rnd 7: Ch 1, sc in same st, *skip 2 sts, 5 dc in next st, skip 2 sts, sc in next st; repeat from * five times eliminating the last sc and slip stitching to first sc. Finish off Color A.
Rnd 8: Add Color B in middle dc of one of the 5 dc shells of previous row. Ch 1, *spike stitch into base of the 5 dc shell (see image below), skip next two sts, work 5 dc in next sc, skip next two sts, repeat from * five times, slip stitch to the beginning spike stitch. Finish off Color B.
Rnd 9: Add Color A in middle dc of one of the 5 dc shells of previous row. Ch 1, *spike stitch into base of the 5 dc shell (see image below), skip next two sts, work 5 dc in next sc, skip next two sts, repeat from * five times, slip stitch to the beginning spike stitch. Finish off Color A.
Rnds 10 – 15: Repeat rounds 8 and 9. Leave a long tail on the last row (you will use that long tail to attach the purse to the frame).
Weave all your ends in, and then we will sew the purse to the frame. To make that happen, place the purse inside the frame, so the three shells are evenly spread out across each side of the purse frame.
Then use a piece of yarn and a yarn needle to sew the purse to the frame. I actually used a long tail left from the last row to sew my purse to the frame. On the front side of the purse, you can just see neat little yarn stitches. You can choose to add a fabric liner to the inside of the purse if you like, but I decided to just leave it as is.
And that’s it! Your sweet little purse is ready for all your coins. 🙂
