Monstera Clutch: Free Tapestry Crochet Purse Pattern

Monstera plants: one of my favorite tropical house plants. I’m a huge fan of collecting and having house plants, and monsteras are my all time favorite ones! If you like houseplants too, then you’re going to love my latest free crochet pattern: the Monstera Clutch. It’s a simple and stylish crochet clutch pattern that uses tapestry crochet to create the monstera pattern. It’s the perfect summer accessory!

I’ve been wanting to crochet a design with monstera leaves for awhile now, and since tropical leaves are great accents to summer outfits, a clutch design was the perfect canvas for it. I’m so excited that it is a part of the Furls Crochet 2021 Blog Hop, making this pattern available for free. I hope you love it!

The Yarn

This Monstera Clutch pattern was made with Furls Whims Merino DK yarn, a weight 3 yarn made from super wash merino wool. This yarn has been specially designed for crocheters, made with a z twist. The z twist helps the yarn work around the crochet hook without snagging, gives it amazing drape, and also helps your stitches stand out. If you hate your stitches splitting while you crochet, then you’re going to love this yarn.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Assembly:

Once you’re done crocheting, it’s time to assemble the clutch. Start by putting the wrong sides together, and taking your CC, and do a single crochet seam along the two sides. 

If you’re using a canvas pouch, insert the canvas pouch inside the seamed crochet clutch. Then using an embroidery needle and thread, sew the top of the crochet clutch to right below the zipper on the canvas pouch.
