Crunch Stitch Crochet Small Coin Purse Pattern

This small coin purse pattern is perfect for those who carry change, but like to keep things to a minimum because it doesn’t hold much. However, if you need something larger, you can easily increase the size by increasing your starting chains.

As is, I would say this size if perfect for any young girl, teen or anyone who prefers a small crochet coin purse. I prefer this size because it forces me to use up my change before I build up a bank inside my purse.

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.

For something bigger, you might want to check out this change purse pattern.

Helpful Tips

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.
