Catch the Fall Written Pattern:

Yarn used to create the Catch the Fall Purse

I had the opportunity to partner with WeCrochet and I’ve developed this pattern with yarn support from WeCrochet.

I opted to use a worsted weight yarn, Mighty Stitch from WeCrochet. This is an 80% Acrylic, 20 % Super Wash Wool yarn, 5 that is, 136 yards, per skein. (Colorway-Navy, Celestial, Orange, Canary, Brown)

I love the soft sheen appearance and the feel of this yarn. The bulk 5 weight allows this project to work up quickly.

You’ll only need approx. 300 yards, to complete this project, I chose to crochet stripes along the bottom and fall leaves so ordered 5 skeins of yarn, in different colors.

Skill Level:

This is a project for the advanced beginner. If you are new to crocheting you need to be comfortable completing a single crochet, double crochet stitch, and an Alpine Stitch (Similar to a front post stitch).

This pattern is written in U.S. terms and there is a key provided, to help with any abbreviations. Also, there have been Notes placed throughout the pattern to provide additional help

Notes

Special Stitches

The Sedge Stitch is used to create most of this purse. This stitch is created by using a cluster of 3 stitches, a sc, a hdc, and a dc, in the same stitch, followed by skipping 2 stitches and then repeating the process of completing another set of cluster stitches across the row.

This pattern is also worked in a spiral, once you get to R7, a stitch marker could be helpful, but it is not necessary.

Written Pattern for the Catch the Fall Purse

Using a crochet bottom shaper will allow the purse to have a solid bottom, which makes it perfect for holding your small items securely. The bottom I used was purchased from Amazon. Check the link, above, to see if you can find the same one or something similar. I used a 7”x2”/18x5cm shaper with 38 holes.

COLOR A – NAVY

R1: Attach yarn to the crochet bottom shaper
and place 2 sl st into the first hole, then 2 sl st in each hole around (76). Sl st to join the round, ch 2. (This ch 2 will count as the first stitch of the next round).

R2: Sc into each stitch around (76), sl st to join round.
ch 2.

R3: Sc into each stitch around (76), sl st to join round; ch 2.

Color B- Celestial

R4: Sc into each stitch around (76), sl st to join round.
ch 2.

Color C- Orange

Increase round
(This round increases by 2 sc stiches. Since, the pattern for the Sedge stitch is worked in a multiple of 3.

R5: Sc each stitch around, **Place 2 sc in 2 stitches within this round (78)**, sl st to join round;

**NOTE: Place 2 sc in one stitch along the way. You will do this twice. This will increase the round from 76 totals stitches to 78 stitches, you can place the 2 sc anywhere within this round.

There are other ways to increase a round, but this is the one of the simplest ways. You can Increase this round anyway you chose. The goal is to increase this round by 2 single crochet stitches.

Change Color D- Canary

R6: Sc each stitch around, *sl st to join round (78).

NOTE: Remember the Sedge stitch is a cluster of sc, hdc and dc, worked into the same stitch. In this round, be sure to skip 2 stitches after the sedge stitch cluster.

Fasten off and weave in all ends.

Attaching the Handles

Measure along the top of the purse (width). Center your handles. Using the stitch markers, mark-off where the handles should be secured.

Attach the yarn through the stitch, below the handle. Hold the handle in place and sew/whipstitch, around the handle until it’s secured.

Continue this process, sewing through each stitch, until the handle is attached. Repeat these steps on the other side of the purse.

Creating the Leaves

The leaves are created using a series of sc, hdc, dc and trc stitches. I found an excellent website which has a video tutorial. Please click here for a video tutorial on how to create the leaves.
