Free Crochet Pattern…Graphic Chevron Clutch!

This cute clutch is all about fun.  Bright, bold, stripy chevrons liven up this clutch which can be used as a purse, a pencil case, or even to tuck your hooks into!  This pattern is a great stash buster and a good way to use up a single button.  Add a liner if you like or leave it unlined.

Materials Needed:

  • Worsted weight yarn of your choice (Yarn shown is Red Heart Super Saver in Spring Green, Black, and White, and Peaches ‘n Creme cotton yarn in Bright Pink)
  • H (5.0 mm) Crochet Hook
  • 1 Button
  • Tapestry Needle


  • Unseamed rectangle (from top middle point to bottom): 10 inches tall and 9 inches wide 
  • Finished clutch (buttoned closed as shown in photo below): 4 inches tall and 9 inches wide 


Note: Each clutch made of 10 stripes, each stripe being 2 rows wide (which equates to foundation row + 19 more rows for clutch as shown).  However, you can make your clutch solid, striped, etc.  Additionally, you can work more rows for a taller/deeper clutch.

Tip: When making striped pieces, it is helpful to crochet in the ends as you go.  Click below for a photo tutorial to learn how:

How to weave in ends as you go…

Assembly and Finishing:

Lay your completed rectangle as shown (3 points at the top, 2 points at the bottom)

Fold up the bottom as shown.  Seam the sides using the whip stitch.  Weave in ends.

Fold the top flap over.  The center point will have a decorative hole created from crocheting the foundation row.  This will also serve as the button hole.  Pass your button through before sewing to make sure it is the correct size.  Use the button hole to determine where you will sew the button.

Place button on clutch and sew using matching yarn (or pink like I did)

Weave in ends and you’re all finished!

Lovely, now you can fill it up… 😉

    Thank you

  3. Love the geometric clutch–can see it holding my reading glasses, my crochet hooks, any number of things. I pinned this and never have I had so many repins of something. Thanks for sharing your talent.

  4. I am into chevrons now (just made an afghan) and I love this patter. Going to use this as a hook case. Love all your patterns, I think I made 6 cowls for gifts for christmas-all from your blog. Thanks for posting so many patterns, I look forward to all of them. ali

  5. I was making this beautiful clutch and at the end of each row there was to many chains left and I just went ahead and hdc in them— is that what I should have done and why were there extra stichs left? Besides that I love this pattern! Solo cute:-)
