my creative space - a star stitch pattern

Remember this? 

I had a few pattern queries, so I've been writing out a pattern for the Star Stitch Coin Purse. The purse I made for my swap partner in Malaysia was slightly different. It was bigger, for starters. But the coin purse is very quick to work up and you might have the urge to try out your own variations. I have included a couple with the pattern.

This one was made with Drops Paris 100% cotton (colours 13 and 14). It's not as sturdy as the larger purse (made with the Madame Tricote Lara 100% cotton). I used a 4.5 mm hook for closer stitches.

A link to the FREE Ravelry download (also available to non-Ravelry users) is right there in the side bar! If you have any problems with it just leave me a comment or email me and I'll see what I can do!

Now, I'll play around with something lighter ...

And since I haven't done it yet, lets have a proper giveaway! Something handmade in May? Yes! Do check back in a couple of days in sha Allah to join in. I might give away that coin purse with some other goodies!

For the star stitch coin purse...I would like to make that bigger, how would I go about doing that?

Fruitful Fusion July 6, 2011 at 8:22 PM  

Cynthia, all you need to do is increase the foundation chain, until your happy with the size (staying with a multiple of three) and work the pattern in the same way.

hey I been tryin to make the larger blue and yellow purse but I keep having trouble with transitioning from the single crochet to star stitch and my star stitches never look
any way you could be a little more specific on how to make it ?

Any shot you could explain the pattern for the larger blue and yellow purse? I too am having trouble figuring out how to go from single crochet into the star stitch. Thank you!!!

Strange but true, I have been surfing for the Star Stitch Clutch Bag and was amazed when I stumbled upon the yellow and blue purse - just right - sadly no pattern there. Appreciate it very much if you would kindly assist me in this regard.

Hoping to hear from you soon, Blessings
