This free crochet along features the Purple Passion Project Purse. It is a free crochet pattern that will be available in parts so we can crochet along together.
When I recently asked what my followers would like to see next as a crochet along it a very strong vote for a bag. Well, as always your wish is my command and I went right to it.
Luckily, I realized I really wanted to make a crochet project bag using one skein of Caron Big Cakes. It worked out perfectly as I used almost all of it.
Which means for this crochet along, also known as CAL, you will simply need one skein of any color combination of a Caron Big Cake and a 5mm hook.
Be sure to use the hashtag #PurplePassionProjectPurseCAL on social media, so I can follow along on your journey to create this awesome bag.
There are a few other materials you will need, but these are the basics. I have listed the rest below.

Furthermore, I you will need to know 3 different types of stitch patterns that are featured on this Purple Passion Project Purse. The great thing is, I will break up the pattern such that you will be working on one stitch pattern at the time.
First, we will be making the rectangular bottom of the purse which features the thermal stitch to provide a great amount of stability.
Next, we will work on the main bottom of the bag which has a beautiful textured due to the Tri Square stitch pattern.
And lastly, we will be finishing the bag using the Linked Treble Crochet stitch on the edge and handle of the bag. Finally, we are adding some buttons and then show off our beautiful crochet project bags to everyone.
I showed off this stunning Purple Passion Project Purse on my recent Facebook Live event and everyone seemed to love it. I even shared a sneak peak on Instagram and people went crazy for it.
Well, now it is finally the time to go to your local yarn store, unless you already have everything you need, and get a Caron Big Cake.
You will have 1.5 weeks to get all your items together. We will start on March 10th when the first part will be released. You will then have one week to finish part 1 before part 2 will be released. The same then goes for part 2 for part 3.
