Woooot!!! We are officially ready to launch the second pattern from our anniversary collection! The Viv coin purse is a little crochet bag with a clasp that is the perfect size for coins and cards.viv1_small

This little coin purse is named Viv after both the Fyberspates Vivacious DK yarn, and the distinctive V stitches running through it. The purse is made seamlessly in the round until you reach the flaps that will be attached to the clip frame. The textured V stitches are made using Dropped stitches (also known as Spike stitches) which are made by making a double crochet stitch into the row below the next stitch.

viv2The design is sweet and takes hardly any time to make up. Since it takes such a small amount of yarn, we have made kits that include just the right amount of yarn so that you don't end up with loads of leftovers. Alternately, it is a great use of a leftover ball of something you may have already. It takes just 35g of a DK weight yarn, or you can make three purses out of a 115g skein, which would make perfect Christmas gifts! The pattern is also available on its own in print from our online shop and digitally via Ravelry.
