  1. Hi! I am currently working on this Aspen Purse (my first project) and I am using a different yarn. How much of the skein did you use to complete this purse? I love the look of what I have done so far, but I need to know if I need to purchase more yarn. The skein I am using is 134 yds. Thanks for your help and the pattern!

  2. In this pattern you say do not turn work. Im new at crochet and did make this cute little purse but did not know how to not turn work:( can you help? Making another one but this time a long strap to cross my body.

    1. You do your chain then work down one side, then you come down the opposite side of the chain completing a loop. Then you keep working in that manner, around in a circle.

  3. Hrmm that was weird, my comment got eaten. Anyway I wanted to say that it's nice to know that someone else also mentioned this as I had trouble finding the same info elsewhere. This was the first place that told me the answer. Thanks. Sbobet Ibcbet
