Pebble Stitch Handbag Free Crochet Pattern

Here’s a free crochet pattern so you can make an easy PEBBLE STITCH HANDBAG OR PURSE, in less than one hour!  This bag is a popular video with over 330,000 views on my youtube channel, and it continues to get lots of views! I have finally gotten around to preparing a pdf pattern for it!  So, finally, here it is for you to keep in your pattern library.

It’s a very versatile pattern, as it can be made wider by simply making a longer foundation chain, and it can be made longer by simply working more rows!  Yes, it really is that simple!

Check out the link in the pattern instructions for lots more purse videos, as well as how to make various styles of your own crochet purse handles!  Handles are always the most difficult and often expensive parts of making a purse… well, I have simplified that by offering several purse handle videos!
