This deep purse is quick and easy to make! Using 3 colors there is no need to cut the yarn between rows, just carry them along the side. The Cascade Yarns 128 Superwash is thick and crochets very smoothly. Each row is shaped with stitches of varying heights and increases or decreases. The purse is plenty big to carry all your goods or even to carry around your current WiP (Work in Progress). The sample is made with shades of blue, but you can make yours in any colors that make you happy!

Fasten off and weave in all ends.

Handles
With Color A, single crochet around one handle until the handle is completely covered. It’s a good idea to pack the stitches tightly. Make the single crochets around the handles as follows:
Make a slip knot and place the loop on the hook, *insert hook into center of handle, yo and pull up a loop (2 loops on hook), yo, pull through both loops, repeat from * until handle is covered.
Repeat process on second handle with Color C.
Fasten off and weave in all ends

Rnd 1:
Join Color B in the top of Row 1, ch 1, (sc, ch 2, sc) in corner, 13 sc across top of purse, (sc, ch 2, sc) in corner, sc in each st across Row 45,
(sc, ch 2, sc) in corner, 13 sc across second top of purse, sl st to top of first sc, sl st into ch-2 sp.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, sc in ch-2 sp, ch 1, sc in same ch-2 sp using the Join As You Go method to join it to a st in one of the handles, sc across each sc to next ch-2 sp joining to handle, sc in ch-2 sp joining to handle, stop joining, sc in each st across to next ch-2 sp, sc in ch-2 sp, ch 1, sc in same ch-2 sp using the Join As You Go method to join it to a st in the second handle, sc across each sc to next ch-2 sp joining to handle, sc in ch-2 sp joining to handle, stop joining, sc in each st across, sl st to top of fist sc.
