Crochet coin purse from granny squares
This coin purse made from granny squares. Can it get better? Yes, it can with a FLAT slip stitch join and a video tutorial how to assemble the squares and join them step by step.
In the past posts I did show you how to make a granny square. And in this post I will show you how I used my 4 granny squares. 4 and a half to be honest. For the diagonal half of a granny square you can take a look at the video tutorial I made:
- crochet hook (3mm)
- granny squares
- yarn (appropriate size for the crochet hook and color) I am using white and yellow
The flat slip stitch join is EASY to do, the only thing you have to remember is “WORKING YARN HAS TO ALWAYS BE ON THE BOTTOM”
The flat slip stitch is used to join two pieces together – in my case two granny squares.
From the left granny square you take a back loop of a stitch, double check that the working yarn is under your work, grab the back loop only of the second granny square – at this point you should have 3 loops on your crochet hook. Now you just grab the working yarn and pull it over all 3 loops. And that is it.
For the beginning some do a slip knot, but I leave a longer tail to work it in in the end.
