Wayuu Pattern #2

Here’s a pattern based on this picture I saw on Pinterest:

The clutch above was made using a regular single crochet, but I would recommend using the modified single crochet for this one. The way I graph out patterns makes them easy to read whether you’re using regular single crochet stitches or modified single crochet stitches.

With simple shapes and only two colors, this is a great quick weekend project. Planning on trying it out? Let me know in the comments below! And if you have any questions, please feel free to ask away. Happy Crocheting!

Hello there, I'm Rebecca! I love creating beautiful things from nothing, which is why I love crocheting. I especially love the tapestry method.. but as I've been picking it up, I've noticed that it's completely underrated! I made this site to spread the word about the greatness of tapestry crochet. I hope that my passion becomes yours and that you create something beautiful today 🙂

    I’m trying it for the first time. I have been looking for this everywhere but can’t seem to find patterns or tutorials on YouTube. Thanks for posting yours are there and special types of yarns needed? Is my only question

    Keep doing a great job

      Hi Whitney! When it comes to the material of the yarn, you can go with whatever you prefer. The same is true about the weight of the yarn. You can do tapestry crochet with any weight of yarn, but some weights are definitely better than others. I generally say you shouldn’t use yarn that is larger than size 4, unless you’re making something very large. For most projects, size 4 will work fine. But for more detailed projects, with designs that are made of a lot of stitches, you should really use a weight that is lighter than 4. The lighter the yarn, the smaller the stitches. And the smaller the stitches, the more detailed the design can be. It’s like drawing with a finely sharpened pencil versus a thick marker. You can create much more detail with a pencil than you could with a thick marker. I hope that helps! Best of luck to you 🙂

    Hola, quisiera saber como se empieza la base, yo se hacer bolsos Wayuu pero como saben se inicia con una base redonda, en éste caso no sé si se empieza con una hilera de cadenetas, y si es así quisiera saber cuántas para empezar, gracias
