Crochet Button Clutch with Pattern

I started making this crochet clutch a long time ago using yarn recycled from a thrift store sweater. Never recycled yarn? Check out this tutorial from Neauveau Fiber Arts. Below is a very basic pattern for what I did. I used three strands of yarn held together and a very large crochet hook. This project is perfect for a large fabulous button.

Crochet Button Clutch Pattern

Chain 18 inches. Half double crochet every row for 14 inches. The start and end of the panel are the sides of the clutch. UPDATE: Fold up the long end 6 inches to make the pocket. Stitch the sides closed using a slip stitch. Attach large snap to inside (see below). Sew button to front center.
