This small coin purse pattern is perfect for those who carry
As is, I would say this size
The stitches are fairly tight on this pouch so you wouldn’t even need to line it. But, being the cheater that I am, I took the lining that I had made for my other coin purse and used it here. The lining is slightly bigger than the coin purse, but it works, and it’s always good to re-use when you can.

- Turn after each rnd.
- Odd numbered rounds are the RS and even rounds are the WS.
- Do not work into joining sl st.
- The yarn is carried on the wrong side. See images below on how to switch between colors:
Finish the rnd as normal, but don’t join the round. Then bring your yarn over and down to the wrong side of work.
Pick up the new color with your hand.
With the new color at the back of your hook, insert your hook into the first stitch made in the round. Yarn over and pull through.
Most likely you’ll see a huge loop from the previous color. Give the loose end a gentle tug to pull that tight.
This is what it looks like after you’ve joined the round and pulled things tight. The active yarn is on the right side, while the other yarn hangs loose on the wrong side.
Turn your work, and skipping the joining slip stitch, work your first stitch into the next slip stitch. Refer to arrow below.
Here you see the first half double crochet stitch made in the new round.
