Crochet a 2 toned granny square purse free pattern + video tutorial

crochet granny square purse

I want to start this blog by saying that this is one of my favorite projects.Once i discovered the 2 toned granny square my mind went wiiiiiii… on creativity.I just went on and on thinking on more and more crochet projects that can be made with this amazing granny square.You will be amazed too once you see all the other projects i will bring later on this week with other projects that use this same amazing granny square.

SO GET READY TO BE AMAZED 😉

Also this project its perfect for some left over yarn that probably we crafters have in our homes.I loved the idea of stacking the crossbodies small purses so i went on and stacked my checkered mobile phone purse too.Which by the way has a full step by step tutorial on my Youtube Channel too.

Check it out here,and let me know what do you think?

However I would suggest to check out this blog scrolling down for its full written pattern and the full step by step video tutorial also available at my Youtube channel.

For this bag i used some left over yarn in 100 % mercerized cotton which i had left over from other projects.There are so many brands that have mercerized cotton but the one i use is from Schachemayr and i usually buy it on amazon.The colors i have used are off white and green

The qty is really very small,you will need around 25 gr or half a skein for each color approx.
