Have you ever made a crochet clutch before? Well, this is more of a wallet than a crochet clutch but can also be adapted into being a clutch. Read through for how to do this.

A few years back, I designed this crochet clutch and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I mean, this wallet has so many compartments to keep different items like money, cards, phone, and so on.

There are 2 main variations to this beautiful pattern. All instructions for doing so are provided in the pattern. I couldn’t decide which I love the most, so I decided to make two. Does that happen to you?

The prototype was made using DK, you can make yours in any weight you want, the only thing to keep in mind is that the finished size would be different from the provided dimensions with any other weight of yarn.
