Samosa Purse

I’ve called this a Samosa Purse because that is what the shape reminds me of!

It’s a basic pattern, you could make it in fine yarn and by adding a crocheted chain, turn it into an amulet to wear around your neck with a crystal inside for protection. The choice is yours, it’s quick and easy to make, enjoy!

Fold purse so the first row is facing, with the tail from the first chain to the left, picking up each bottom loop, sc evenly across, or slip stitch, or if preferred, sew the edges together, finish off and sew in ends. Add a button or a popper to fasten the flap down, for a loop to go around the button, either add a small chain or work a hole in between the stitches.
